Today we learn more about the Executive Order that Comrade Prznint Stupid signed, it seems not to be what anyone thinks it is, just sort of like the manufactured crisis than invoked it. Oh, and it has/had a glaring typo in the title of it:

“Affording Congress an Opportunity to Address Family Seperation [sic]”

So we know it was crafted with all of the usual care and diligence that is the trademark of the Fourth Reich. If you read the article, you’ll see that no two people in the Administration seem to be on the same page, so blog only knows what happens next.

Anyway, from what I can gather, there is nothing there about returning the kidnapped children to their families. Maybe instead of separating kiddies, the whole family goes to jail? And there is still in place that legal rule that says kids cannot be held for more than 20 days, so… what happens if the family is held for longer?

Boom! Separation.

Anyway, smarter, legal types are no doubt pouring over this and will have more to say today. I’m skeptical that this will do much of anything.

The LATimes newsletter thingie sums it up thusly:

“President Trump rarely backs down in the face of public pressure, but the widespread outcry over painful scenes of children being separated from their migrant parents forced a retreat. He signed an executive order that aims to keep families together, albeit in detention. But that is likely to open a legal battle over the 21-year-old court settlement, known as the Flores agreement, under which the government agreed to hold immigrant minors no longer than 20 days – not nearly long enough for most immigration cases. Nor is it clear how long the order will remain in effect. Officials also have no plans to begin reuniting the more than 2,300 children (nearly 100 of whom are now in the L.A. area) who’ve been forcibly separated from their parents under the six-week policy. Meanwhile, experts say such separations typically leave long-term physical and mental damage.”

    Somebody forgot the * and the disclaimer:
    * “Offer not good in all areas. Offer good for a short time only. (20 days, according to the Volcker Rule.) Offer may be rescinded at any time. This administration not liable for any abuse, evasion or other types of non-compliance.”
    You gotta read the fine print, even if there isn’t any, and it’s only implied.

    Is it an example of the incompetence of theTrump admin or a juvenile trick that most of us learned to dismiss as asinine when we were 13.

    They won’t seperate any more children from their families. There’s nothing saying anything about not separating them though.

    Just like – “It’s not torture. Its ‘enhanced interrogation’.”

    Monsters being cheered on by schoolyard bullies.


  3. On his twitter feed this morning, evidence that he is using kids and families as pawns. “The Border has been a big mess and problem for many years. At some point Schumer and Pelosi, who are weak on Crime and Border security, will be forced to do a real deal, so easy, that solves this long time problem. Schumer used to want Border security – now he’ll take Crime!”

    We will force them to do a “real deal.” This is infuriating.

    Comrade Stupid’s executive order is another conjob to cover all the other conjobs and crimes against humanity that make up his anti-immigration policies. Of course there’s no plan to undo any of the damage already done, to stop doing more damage or to “fix” any real or imagined problems. Gaslighting isn’t supposed to work when the victim knows he’s being gaslighted, but our “free press” just can’t help themselves.

    I believe it’s about time we start separating the Trump Crime Family from their children because American Crime Families are separated from their children all of the time. According to law.

    If what I’ve been reading about the lack of record-keeping is true, nobody has a fucking clue how to even begin re-uniting the 2000+ kids—already separated and warehoused godknowswhere—with their parents who are now warehoused godknowselsewhere.

    This is the first substantive deviation I’ve seen that the Fourth Reich has made from the methods and strategies of the Third, who were obsessive record-keepers.
    Indeed, it was that characteristically meticulous paper trail which made them so vulnerable to prosecution in the years that followed their eventual defeat.

    So it seems Hair Führer and his minions are not following the script as closely as I’ve been thinking. It’s unsettling to contemplate that they might actually have learned something from previous Reichsgefuckups.

    Also, too, at the urging of some comments elsewhere, I’ve been contemplating how long this “policy” of “suddenly” accelerating the baby-snatching must have been in the works. There are far too many time-consuming preparatory logistical issues involved, and far too many functionaries all pointed in the same direction, for this to be any impulsive shoot-from-the-hip Trumpism.

    This goddam horrible shit was planned, and has been for some time. Which means that it’s not just Miller and Sessions and Trump who thought is was a good idea, a whole fucking big boatload of functionaries at all kinds of levels who were involved in the preparatory work (procuring and renting the walmarts, stockpiling and assembling the chainlink enclosures, the mats, blankets, food etc, and hiring and assigning the personnel) must have thought so too, and regarded if favorably with enough force for none of them to leak the prep details ahead of time.

    Scary times indeed.
