World Donald Trump President Donald Trump has shut down the government to pressure Democrats to fund his border wall and keep out migrants. But that means that immigration judges are not being paid and courts have been forced to postpone court hearings, according to the Department of Justice. And that, experts have told Newsweek, will mean that many migrants with unresolved immigration statuses will remain in the country longer as they wait for hearings. “Introducing a pause in the progress of a case is going to make the case last longer. Obviously people have a right to have their cases heard fully, so one effect is going to be to increase the length of cases and exacerbate the backlogs, which is ironic because the administration has decried these backlogs and the length of proceedings time and again. But here they are insisting on a shutdown that will simply lengthen the process,” Omar Jadwat, Director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s immigrants’ … [Read more...] about Donald Trump’s Border Wall Government Shutdown Will Mean Some Immigrants Get to Stay in America Longer

By E.J. Dionne Jr. | The Washington Post PUBLISHED: May 31, 2018 at 12:15 pm | UPDATED: May 31, 2018 at 12:18 pm WASHINGTON — By now, we know that President Trump is a lying demagogue. Since this is not said often enough, he has been allowed to routinize lying and enshrine the vilest forms of divisiveness as a normal part of our politics. Lies do not deserve deference just because a president tells them. We thought that the media learned during Joe McCarthy’s heyday that “We report the lies, you decide” is not a responsible approach to journalism.
