    Our immigrant-hating President hasn't given up on his dream of building the expensive, unnecessary, ineffective Trump Wall monument to himself. He tried to divert military funds but it is Congress, not the President, who determines how federal funds are spent. Trump is now asking the Supreme Court to let him do what the Constitution of the United States says he can't do.

    Vice-President Pence, echoing the words of Emperor Trump, denounced the New York Times' "phony" reporting and insisted the migrants are "in good shape." Trump and Pence are lying. The headline tells the truth: Migrants are "caged, unwashed, overcrowded, hungry." Yes sir, the Trump administration is all heart.

    Men say they have been held for 40 days or more, are hungry and want to brush teeth.

    I'll say it again: With the exception of his wife and his grandparents, Emperor Trump hates immigrants, whether here legally or illegally. He doesn't want immigrants coming to the United States of America. Your honor, I'd like to enter these stories into evidence as Exhibits D, E and F:

    Trump administration moves to stop more immigrants from seeking US asylum

    Francisco Galicia is 18. He was about to be deported to Mexico even though he was born in Dallas. Yes sir, the Trump administration is all heart.

    Racist, bigoted, immigrant-hating, white nationalist Emperor Trump decreed that migrants would be ineligible for asylum if they failed to first apply for protection in another country through which they passed en route to the United States. A Trump-appointed judge refused to block the new rule. However, another judge – whom Trump has denounced as an "Obama judge" – issued a preliminary injunction. The power to make changes to asylum laws rests with Congress, not the President. This isn't the first time Emperor Trump has tried to bypass Congress and it certainly will not be the last.

    A United States birth certificate? A United States Social Security card? A Texas driver's license? Sorry, that's not adequate identification in the "great" America of Donald Trump.

    Our racist, bigoted, fear-mongering, immigrant-hating, white nationalist President managed to get two highly partisan, pro-Trump judges appointed to the Supreme Court. The United States Constitution gives Congress, not the President, control over federal expenditures but the new, pro-Trump Supreme Court no longer cares about the Constitution. The Justices just voted 5-4 to allow the President to bypass Congress and raid the military budget so he can build the expensive, unnnecessary, ineffective Trump Wall monument to himself – and the "Make America Hate Again" and "Make America White Again" movements continue.

    Our immigrant-hating Emperor makes his own laws. Why should he care what federal judges say? More than 3,600 children have been separated from their families in the past two years. Yes sir, that Trump administration is all heart.

    ACLU says Trump administration has separated 911 migrant children from families in last year, in defiance of court order

    Donald Trump hates immigrants and loves big corporations. Just wait till he finds out how many of those big corporations were founded by immigrants! He'll be apoplectic.

    Study backs up Andrew Yang's claim about immigrants
    Yahoo Finance, Aug 1 2019 3:34 PM

    During the second night of the Democratic debates, Presidential candidate Andrew Yang said "immigrants are being scapegoated" for reasons that have "nothing to do with our economy." "I'm the son of immigrants myself," said the 44-year-old entrepreneur. “My father immigrated here as a graduate student and generated over 65 US patents for GE and IBM. I think that's a pretty good deal for the United States. That's the immigration story we need to be telling. We can’t always be focusing on some of the distressed stories. If you go to a factory here in Michigan, you will not find wall-to-wall immigrants; you will find wall-to-wall robots and machines. Immigrants are being scapegoated for issues they have nothing to do with our economy."

    Yang has a point. A recent analysis by the New American Economy, a research and advocacy group that is pro-immigration, found that 223, nearly 45%, of this year’s Fortune 500 companies were founded by immigrants or their children. One hundred one were directly founded by foreign-born individuals and 122 founded by children of immigrants. Those companies collectively generated $6.1 trillion in revenue in 2019 – which is bigger than the GDP of countries such as Japan, Germany and the UK – and employed 13.5 million people.

    The Immigration & Nationality Act allows immigrants to apply for asylum in the United States, regardless of whether they arrived at a legal port of entry. Emperor Trump doesn't like that law so he made his own law. Well.......at least he tried.

    Federal judge rules against Trump asylum policy
