    In my August 5 comment on the Trump supported so called RAISE act, which would make drastic cuts in legal immigration categories which used largely by people from non-white areas of the world (namely less skilled employment, refugee programs and Diversity green card), I contend that it is a misnomer to call the bill "Merit-based", and that "Meret-based", as in the word "meretricious" (deriving from the Latin word for "prostitute") would be more appropriate.

    This is because of the utter lack of good faith in the arguments which are being made in support of this bill, which might more aptly be called the RACE Act or the RUSE Act, as I explain in the above comment and a couple of earlier ones I have also posted on about the same pernicious bill, which is clearly intended to undo the reforms of the momentous civil rights era 1965 immigration act and take America back to the openly white supremacist, "Nordics only" immigration system of the 1924 law which America's current AG, Jeff Sessions, supported as a Senator in his 2015 immigration "Handbook" for Congressional Republicans, and which Adolf Hitler also praised some 90 years earlier in Mein Kampf.

    While my above blog comment deals more with legal issues involving this bill, there is also a good summary of the motives behind the introduction of this bill in a column by a writer, Amanda Marcotte, describing this bill as part of "White Supremacy Week" at the White House.

    My only question is: why is it expected to last only a week?

    Isn't Trump supposed to be there for at least 4 years?

    The following comment is not directly concerned with immigration policy, but it does involve the larger question of how long Donald Trump, arguably the most anti-immigrant president America has had in almost almost a century, since the time of Calvin Coolidge and the notorious 1924 "Nordics" only immigration act which he signed, can expect to remain in office as president.

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation is closing in on Trump, perhaps slowly, but surely as The Guardian reports on August 5:

    As the Handwriting on the Wall in the Mueller investigations starts to look more and more like the Biblical words: Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin in the Book of Daniel for Donald Trump, his temptation to engage in even wilder and more dangerous saber-rattling with the paranoid North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un,

    in order to turn attention away from the Mueller investigations becomes understandably greater.

    The question is whether Trump's understandable wish to do anything possible to turn attention away from Robert Mueller could lead to a confrontation with North Korea that could turn this planet into a nuclear wasteland where no place that anyone would want to immigrate to would any longer exist, and there would be no people left to become immigrants anywhere on earth.

    This is how diplomats treat Senior American citizens in Argentina and also to wives applying for a visa. No comments needed, just -please- see this:

    Please join us to welcome vice-president Pence to Argentina at the embassy with this video and flyers!<wbr>v=k8t3H4nrtnc&
