  1. What if the Las Vegas Mass Killer Had Been a Muslim Immigrant? Would Trump be Calling for Closed Borders and Muslim Internment? Roger Algase

    As opinion writer Moustafa Bayoumi points out in his telling October 4 article in The Guardian, when a Middle Eastern (or US citizen) Muslim engages in mass murder, he or she is automatically called a terrorist by the media. However when a white American does the same thing, as in the horrific Las Vegas shooting massacre which has taken 59 lives so far and injured more than 500 people, the perpetrator is referred to as a "Lone Wolf".

    In the wake of the 2015 San Bernardino shooting, which took the lives of 14 people, then presidential candidate Trump called for a "complete shutdown" on immigration to the US by Muslims worldwide in retaliation. As president, he has at least made a beginning toward that objective with his first seven and later six Muslim country entry ban executive orders, all in the ostensible name of national security and protecting the safety of the American people.

    After that shooting, Trump even suggested that he might have supported the internment of Japanese-Americans during WW2, one of the most shameful episodes in all of America's history, in an obvious reference to the possibility of interning American Muslims, which some of his supporters and other commentators have also suggested could happen one day.

    But what was the president's reaction to this latest most horrendous mass shooting that America has ever faced to date, committed by a white, non-Muslim US citizen? After a hastily staged minute of silence, Trump's reaction was, essentially, ho-hum, sorry we can't do anything - of course, forget about gun control; that's totally off the table, and let's move on to the next item (at the golf course, maybe, or perhaps just tweaking the latest Muslim ban executive order some more to try to pass muster with the Supreme Court)?

    Double standard, anyone?

  2. Deportations Slow Under Trump

    by , 10-04-2017 at 06:42 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Never you worry Mr. Obama, your deportation record is safe.

    Via the Washington Post:

    Despite President Trumpís push for tougher immigration enforcement, U.S. agents are on pace to deport fewer people in the governmentís 2017 fiscal year than during the same period last year, the latest statistics show.

    Trump took office pledging to round up as many as 3 million drug dealers, gang members and other criminals he said were living in the United States illegally. But the most recent figures from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) indicate the government may be having a hard time finding enough eligible ďbad hombres,Ē as the president described them, to quickly meet those targets.

    As of Sept. 9, three weeks before the end of the 2017 fiscal year, ICE had deported 211,068 immigrants, according to the most recent figures provided by the agency. ICE removed 240,255 people during the governmentís 2016 fiscal year.
