    Well, the filing of this lawsuit was not unexpected:

    ACLU files suit to stop Trump's new asylum limits
    The Associated Press, Nov 9 2018

    The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a legal challenge to President Donald Trump's order denying asylum to migrants who cross the US-Mexico border illegally. The lawsuit was filed today in federal court in San Francisco and argues the new rules are against the law. Attorney Lee Gelernt says the regulations will put families in danger. The suit seeks to declare the regulations invalid and asks a judge to stop the rules from going into effect while the litigation is pending.

    Now that the midterm elections are over, Trump no longer sees any reason to stoke fear and hatred by making false claims about an "invasion" of "bad thugs" and "Middle Eastern terrorists." Of course no mass shootings or terrorist attacks have ever been carried out by anyone who crossed the border from Mexico into the US but Trump's anti-immigrant base doesn't want to hear that.

    I'm making a list of all the Republican leaders who have not spread lies, conspiracy theories and false accusations against Democrats. So far I have Jeff Flake. There must be one or two others but I can't think of any right now.

    Thousands of people are crossing the border and asking for asylum. No, not our southern border -- our northern border. The majority are Haitian immigrants who fear Donald Trump will take away their temporary protected status.

    2,550 US citizens applied for asylum in Canada in 2017. That's more than 6 times as many as in previous year.

    Trump sent 5,800 members of the military to the southwest US border so they could protect and defend us from the "invasion" of "thugs" and "gang members" and "Middle Eastern terrorists" making their way northward from Central America. Actually, those migrants are fleeing war, crime, poverty and natural disasters and were planning to ask for asylum in the US -- but our immigrant-hating President thought Republicans would sweep the midterm elections if he stoked fear and hatred in his anti-immigrant supporters. His outrageous, immoral, unethical, costly use-our-troops-to-boost-the-Republican-party scheme failed.

    The judge ruled that Trump has no authority to "rewrite immigration laws to impose a condition that Congress has strictly forbidden," i.e., crossing only at a "designated port of entry." A Justice Department lawyer had said a "crushing strain" of migrants with "meritless claims" for asylum were planning to cross the border ilegally. Of course the Justice Department lawyer was unable to provide any evidence to support his ridiculous statement.

    Trump, a narcissist who thinks everything is about him, denounced the "Obama judge" who ruled that Trump can not arbitrarily change asylum rules that were approved by Congress. And now.......

    In rare rebuke, Chief Justice Roberts slams Trump for comment about 'Obama judge'
    The Associated Press, Nov 21 2018 9:49 AM

    Chief Justice John Roberts is pushing back against President Donald Trump's description of a judge who ruled against Trump's new migrant asylum policy as an "Obama judge." It's the first time the leader of the federal judiciary has offered even a hint of criticism of Trump, who has previously blasted federal judges who ruled against him.

    Roberts said today the US does not have "Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges." He commented in a statement released by the Supreme Court after a query by The Associated Press. Roberts said on the day before Thanksgiving that an "independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for."

    Last year, the President used the term a "so-called judge" after the first federal ruling against his travel ban.

    Surprise, surprise, surprise! The Trump administration has worked out a deal with the transition team of President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador that will allow migrants to stay in Mexico while their requests for asylum are processed in the US. Nothing has been formally signed, as details are still being worked out. The "Remain In Mexico" program is likely to face legal challenges because more than 750,000 asylum requests are pending in the courts and this new program would require applicants to wait, likely for many years, in Mexico instead of in the comparatively safer United States.

    The Central American migrants were not rioting or throwing rocks and bottles. Granted, they should not have tried to squeeze through gaps in the border wall, but couldn't guards have found a more humane way to stop them than by firing tear gas? I guess we should be thankful they didn't use the "lethal force" authorized by Donald Trump.

    We're used to Trump telling lies about the Central American migrants: They're an "invasion," they're "terrorists," they're "gang members" -- and now DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has come up with some lies of her own, saying the migrants are convicted burglars, assaulters, drug dealers and child abusers. Does everyone in the Trump administration hate immigrants?
