    We all know Donald Trump despises illegal immigrants. He also doesn't think much of legal immigrants. (Remind me to tell you sometime how Friedrich Trump, Donald's paternal grandfather, immigrated to the US from Bavaria in 1885.) Trump's war on immigrants continues. "Make America White Again."

    This ruling affects immigrants from Sudan, Haiti, Nicaragua and El Salvador, many of whom have been living in the US for several years and now have children -- and who were facing deportation. A class-action lawsuit accused the Trump administration of having a "political agenda" and being "motivated by racism." I don't know about "racism," though. Trump seems to hate immigrants of all races.

    Another day, another judge and another ruling against the Trump administration's war on immigrants:

    Federal judge rules against Sessions' effort to hit sanctuary cities
    CBS News, Oct 5 2018

    A federal district court judge ruled today that Attorney General Jeff Sessions' conditions on grant funding to force so-called sanctuary cities to cooperate with immigration enforcement efforts are unconstitutional. Judge William Orrick of the US District Court for the Northern District of California sided with the state of California and San Francisco in their lawsuit challenging the requirements in granting their request for summary judgment.

    The conditions Sessions set in 2017 required sanctuary cities to give immigration officials access to their jails, notify ICE officials of the planned release of a detainee and follow a law that prohibits state and local governments from restricting how much information is shared with the Department of Homeland Security.

    Orrick's decision was in agreement with every court that has looked at these issues. He said the conditions violate the separation of power and the information-sharing law is unconstitutional.

    Donald Trump hates immigrants. It matters not whether they are here illegally.....or legally. It is not surprising that his newly-sworn-in Supreme Court nominee feels the same way.

    Kavanaugh backs Trump administration on jailing and deporting immigrants for crimes committed years earlier
    Los Angeles Times, Oct 10 2018 10:15 AM

    Newly seated Justice Brett Kavanaugh spoke up today in defense of the Trump administration’s view that legal immigrants with criminal records can be arrested and held for deportation, even years after they were convicted and completed their sentences. At issue is a federal law that calls for mandatory detention and possible deportation for "criminal aliens," including legal immigrants convicted of crimes ranging from violent felonies to simple drug possession. The law says the Homeland Security secretary "shall take into custody any alien" with a criminal record that could lead to deportation "when the alien is released."

    The debate focuses on when exactly is "when"? In a class-action suit brought in California, lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union complained the mandatory detention policy has been applied to lawful immigrants who had lived and worked in the community for decades after being convicted of misdemeanors, such as drug possession charges. The administration argues that a provision of the 1996 law calls for arresting and jailing such immigrants, despite their good records after serving their time.

    Kavanaugh disputed the ACLU’s contention that this mandatory detention rule applies only to immigrants who can be detained at the time they are being released from local jails or state prisons, not to those released years ago. "Congress did not put in a time limit," Kavanaugh said. "It raises a real question over whether we should put in a time limit." Kavanaugh also questioned ACLU arguments that detained immigrants are entitled to bond hearings for release.

    I'll say it again: That Trump administration is all heart.

    I'll say it again: Donald Trump despises illegal immigrants. He also doesn't think much of legal immigrants. And here is proof that he also does not like immigrants who serve in the United States Army and hope to become US citizens:

    Army discharged more than 500 skilled immigrant enlistees in 1 year, AP reports
    CBS News, Oct 12 2018, 12:45 PM

    Over the course of 12 months, the US Army discharged more than 500 immigrant enlistees who were recruited across the globe for their language or medical skills and promised a fast track to citizenship in exchange for their service, The Associated Press has found. The decade-old Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest recruiting program (MAVNI) was put on hold in 2016 amid concerns that immigrant recruits were not being screened sufficiently. The Army began booting out those enlistees last year without explanation.

    The AP has interviewed more than a dozen recruits from countries such as Brazil, Pakistan, Iran, China and Mongolia who all said they were devastated by their unexpected discharges or canceled contracts. Until now, it's been unclear how many were discharged and for what reason because the Army has refused to discuss specific cases. But the Army's own list, submitted to the US District Court for the District of Columbia last month, says 502 service members who enlisted under MAVNI were discharged between July 2017 and July 2018.

    Donald Trump lumps all immigrants, whether here legally or illegally, into a single category and declares them all to be bad. For those of with a heart (which excludes Trump), it is hard to not feel sad for many of them and ashamed of how our nation is treating them.

    The United States allowed more than 300,000 immigrants to temporarily live here. These are immigrants who came from six countries that were hard hit by earthquakes, hurricanes or wars. The Trump administration has now arbitrarily decreed that those six countries -- Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, Sudan and El Salvador -- have become veritable utopias to which the immigrants can return and dwell in peace and joy forevermore. Of course we know that is not really the case. Yes sir, that Trump administration is all heart.

    Yes, these children are highly dangerous and need to be controlled with the proverbial "iron fist." Let me call Stalag 13 and see if Colonel Klink, Sergeant Schultz, Major Hochstetter and General Burkhalter are available.
