The Sonoran Desert is fine. People will bring them water and blankets and we can solve this problem with love instead of more hate.

Also Pham, you don't want to go to Mars. Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids.

Well at least he's not completely divorced from reality yet.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/business ... d1b7b10caf
“Can’t take you anymore,” Trump said, while standing at the border in California. “Our country is full.”

But his administration is sending a different message to some short-term workers. With the additional visas, the Trump administration is on track to grant 96,000 H-2B visas this fiscal year, the most since 2007, when George W. Bush was president.
A major theme of Trump’s presidential campaign was that foreign workers were stealing U.S. jobs, but lately he has said it might be necessary to bring in more guest workers because the economy is doing so well that companies can’t find enough people to fill jobs. The unemployment rate, at 3.8 percent, is near a 50-year low.

The Martian desert is too good for those fuckers. I say we imprison them for life in a migrant concentration camp run by the US Border Patrol.

Listen DAR. Let me assure you. The real estate you want on Mars is certified Matt Damon free. If you buy in the next 15 minutes then I'll throw in a pet rock that keeps tigers and Ben Affleck away. You can't pass up this dream deal! Now sign on the dotted line!

Motel 6 will pay $12M to settle lawsuit after sharing guest info with ICE
Motel 6 agreed to pay $12 million to settle a lawsuit that accused several Washington state locations of sharing personal guest information with U.S. immigration officials.

The budget motel operator illegally shared the personal information of about 80,000 customers for more than two years, resulting in a "targeted" ICE investigation into guests with Latino-sounding names, the Washington state attorney general's office announced Thursday.

The office said operators at seven Washington locations had voluntarily shared their guest lists with ICE agents between February 2015 and September 2017, without requiring a warrant.

"Each time Motel 6 released a guest list, it included the private information of every guest at the hotel without their knowledge or consent, violating their expectation of privacy," Attorney General Bob Ferguson's office said in a statement. "The Motel 6 guest information disclosures led to significant harmful consequences, including the detention and deportation of many guests and the suffering of their families."

She's looking for private sector opportunities in child abduction.

Maybe she should see if there are any openings in the middle of the Sahara.

I feel about Nielsen's leaving the same way I felt about Sessions' -- yeah, they're both evil people who never should've had legal power in the first place, but they weren't let go for any of the reasons WE think they should've been let go: they were let go because they weren't evil enough for Trump's purposes.

FEMA camps for people the White House finds undesirable, but for real.
I would deploy the thousands of FEMA trailers, either to border cities or to military bases in Texas and Arizona and set up processing centers. Instead of just turning loose these bogus asylum applicants on to the American streets never to be seen again.

Leaders in sanctuary cities should call Trump's bluff and say yes to the plot to ship asylum seekers to sanctuary cities, then immediately set up fast-track processing centers well out of the reach of the Customs and Border Patrol.

Instant immigration reform, instant neutralizing of Trump's main campaign issue...
