Weimar Republic Wednesday


WASHINGTON ― Human rights advocates spent years fighting for even small improvements to the system that detains men, women and children waiting to be either deported or released back into the U.S. Now they fear the progress they have made could disappear under President Donald Trump, who has promised harsher treatment of undocumented immigrants.

“This administration is prepared to make conditions at immigrant detention even worse than they already are, which, given that for some people they’re already fatal, is terrifying,” said Mary Small, policy director of the advocacy group Detention Watch Network.

Trump’s Department of Homeland Security is considering looser regulations for new contracts with jails to hold immigrants in deportation proceedings, The New York Times reported earlier this month. That agreement would allow jails to treat immigrants detained for civil offenses the same way they treat people charged with crimes.

The department also plans to eliminate an office at Immigration and Customs Enforcement that focuses on improving the detention system and to ramp up detention and deportation efforts.

    Democracy is on the precipice, in danger of failure, the Constitution is being circumvented for profit creating a captive audience of ultra-low wage workers (cheap labor) instead of direct deportation. Inhumane conditions for the captives of Plutocracy are the standard because no one can see what is going on inside the walls of excessive detention.

    First they come for the illegal immigrants, who will be next? Protestors, Jews, Muslims?
    We are all at risk of being trampled by Federal Authoritarian rule if we do not act to oppose such BS.

    As usual 14 minutes to the Hillside Cafe where I have never before seen such as full dining room. Maybe students are now actually studying for finals next week.

      Thence to the east end of Grimes Way followed around clockwise to and along Paradise Flat Creek, which during the big rains had flooded over the path on one bridge and in another spot undermined the edge of the trail, further on to the South Fork of the Palouse River where I saw two Mallards flying, always seems so improbable that these ducks can takeoff, and then, later, a natural raft rotating its way down the river, slowly breaking into the separate and big branches. There was a bicyclist watching it so maybe he had launched it. Finally the usual route up College Hill Climb and Maple Street Extension and down to the house; a daily total of 123 minutes and just feel well exercised, no aches or pains.

      Day 4: 213+123=336 minutes.
