Woman Seeking Asylum From Domestic Abuse Sues Trump Administration For Taking Her 7-Year-Old Son!

What could Donald Trump possibly say to justify this?? Beata Mariana de Jesus Mejia-Mejia is a Guatemalan national who came to the United States seeking asylum from a dangerous domestic abuse situation in which she feared for her life. When she did, all she found was more abuse — at the hands of the U.S. government, who [...] What could Donald Trump possibly say to justify this?? Beata Mariana de Jesus Mejia-Mejia is a Guatemalan national who came to the United States seeking asylum from a dangerous domestic abuse situation in which she feared for her life. When she did, all she found was more abuse -- at the hands of the U.S. government, who took her 7-year-old son, Darwin, by force and refused to tell her where he was. Video: Laura Ingraham Compares Immigrant Child Detention Centers To 'Summer Camps' Now, according to a DailyMail.com report, she's filed a lawsuit which will test Trump's cruel policy toward immigrants. Here's some background: For years the U.S. has granted abused women asylum because the misogynistic governments of their home countries were unwilling to protect a woman from her husband. We were the good guys. Last week Attorney General Jeff Sessions officially dropped the protection for abused women. Mejia-Mejia may have gotten in under the wire as she entered back in May. But she was still subject to the new "family separation" policy. Video: YOU Can Help The Border Children & Their Families! In order to seek asylum, you have to be in the country, which means you have to enter illegally then make your request. Under Trump's new "zero tolerance" policy, everyone who enters illegally, no matter the reason, is thrown into a prison camp and prosecuted. Not turned away, not sent back. Jailed. More cruelly, as has caused much controversy over the past couple weeks, is the new policy of taking these parents' children away -- sometimes by trickery and sometimes by force -- and throwing them into their own prison camps. It's that policy Mejia-Mejia is challenging with her lawsuit, filed in Federal District Court on Tuesday against 6 federal agencies and 10 senior officials. The suit says after Mejia-Mejia turned herself in to Border Patrol to request asylum, agents refused to tell her where they were taking her boy: "Men dressed in green uniforms (border agents) told Ms. M. they needed to take her son and would not tell her why. Ms. M. said "no" and demanded an explanation, but they would not tell her why they needed to take her seven-year-old son, and they took him anyway." The complaint says the 7-year-old was "screaming and crying" throughout the ordeal. "That was the last time Ms. M. saw her son." Furthermore, the suit alleges Mejia-Mejia "has not been given any paperwork to indicate where her son is or what his status or health condition is." Related: Trump Family & Their Charity Sued For 'Persistent Illegal Conduct'! After Mejia-Mejia posted bail after giving a "credible fear" she was allowed a single phone call with Darwin in which he was "crying and scared": "An official facilitating the call, who was with D.M., told Ms. M. that her son was 'fine,' but Ms. M. could clearly hear her son saying 'Mama! Mama! Mama!' in a distressed voice over and over and over again." Horrifying. The Trump administration is claiming this is in accordance with the law, but the law only says children of immigrants can't be kept in the detention centers if their parents are being held. It's obvious to any reasonable person the intent was not for the children to be held in another detention center away from their parents. Trump is intent on prosecuting every single person that comes across the border, so everyone gets thrown into a camp -- and EVERY child gets taken away. That's "zero tolerance" for ya. But like we explained, Mejia-Mejia is not being prosecuted. She qualified for asylum. And yet she does not know where her son is. Can you imagine? Mejia-Mejia is demanding in her suit that a federal court order Darwin returned to her, forbid agents from deporting her without him, and declare the act of taking him away to be illegal. The ramifications of such a ruling could change everything. [Image via Johnny Louis/WENN/Border Patrol/ABC News/Facebook.].....»»

Open Post: Hot Or Not – Children Separated From Parents And Put In Kennels At Border

Is now a time to demonstrate our humanity through leniency and mercy, or is it time to flex our border muscles for the sake of national security? What should our legacy be? What would Jesus do? What would you do? The post Open Post: Hot Or Not – Children Separated From Parents And Put In Kennels At Border appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. Got them from @CBP. The first photos since zero tolerance was announced inside the largest Border Patrol processing station in US — McAllen’s Ursula. This is where we toured today. They say it’s where more kids are separated from their parents than anywhere else in the US. pic.twitter.com/yMsAo1vMKd — Jacob Soboroff (@jacobsoboroff) June 17, 2018   Everyone and their abuela is talking about how under President Trump’s zero-tolerance policy, children of asylum-seekers are being separated from their parents at border detention centers, and at the largest one in the country – the Customs and Border Protection facility in McAllen, TX – the separated children are being housed in cages. Well actually, “cages” has become the triggering word of the week, because while liberals are calling the chain-link enclosures seen in the newly-released images “cages,” conservates are calling them “definitely not cages.” Technically I consider “cages” to have a top and bottom component allowing them to be fully enclosed, so I think we should put aside our differences and agree on “kennels.” Whatever the case, these children – 2,000 of which have already been detained in the past six weeks – have bright futures.   If the zero-tolerance immigration policy had been adopted in America 700 years, we wouldn’t have this present-day problem, but as it stands, the separating of children from their parents who illegally brought them to the border is causing an uproar from both sides of the political spectrum. The tough practice is intended to dissuade families from experiencing the glitz and glamour and school shootings of the US, with Attorney General Jeff Sessions stating in May: If you don’t want your child separated, then don’t bring them across the border illegally. The laws are the laws. A big name of the game is deterrence. Old school conservative Laura Bush wrote an open letter in The Washington Post wondering if humanity or compassion could potentially enter the equation for the Trump White House’s stance on detainment center practices. The pictures depicting children in kennels at the McAllen center are having a similar effect that Farm Security Administration (FSA) coverage of the Dust Bowl and Southern poverty in the wake of the Great Depression had in the 1930’s. Published in Life Magazine, these unsettling analog viral images united Americans in demanding a better future for their brethren. But can the same be achieved in 2018? When the depicted children in need are of a different nationality? Is now a time to demonstrate our humanity through leniency and mercy, or is it time to flex our border muscles for the sake of national security? What should our legacy be? What would Jesus do? What would you do? Let us know in the comments.   Here’s the video released by @CBP which shows adults and children being held in cages at the immigration processing center in McAllen, Texas. pic.twitter.com/AuR2d6aw8D — Tasneem N (@TasneemN) June 18, 2018 Photo Credit: Getty Images The post Open Post: Hot Or Not – Children Separated From Parents And Put In Kennels At Border appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?......»»

Robert De Niro was doing great at keeping the Trump hate under wraps but he recently slipped up. It was first reported that he had banned Trump from all Nobu restaurants, but that was quickly corrected. His PR team stated Robert did not ban the President of the United States but if Trump happened to stroll into the same Nobu restaurant that Robert was eating at, De Niro would have no problem leaving the expensive unfinished sashimi on the table and making a beeline towards the exit. Ballsy. But Robert is at a point in his career where he no longer needs anymore gigs to get by. He fully came out of the closet at the Tony Awards, making his disdain for Trump public. Robert did not miss his opportunity to let an “F Trump” fly. Australians received an uncensored broadcast and there was a mixture of confusion, hesitant clapping, and a couple of “crikey mate, this again” experienced in the Down Under that night. Robert De Niro ended up getting bleeped Sunday night at the Tony Awards when he dropped some f-bombs about President Donald Trump while introducing a performance by Bruce Springsteen. “First, I wanna say, ‘f**k Trump,'” De Niro said. “It’s no longer ‘Down with Trump,’ it’s ‘f**k Trump.'” Honestly all De Niro managed to do was create a distraction. Let’s focus on who the real villains are here. Amy Schumer was nominated for best actress in a leading role in a play. An “F Amy Schumer” would have been way more appropriate. Even worth a standing ovation. Because no one that mediocre at their craft should be allowed to become that famous. Here’s video of DeNiro swearing at Trump on #TonyAwards Australian feed didnt censor it. pic.twitter.com/KZNrT8UIyH — Rhett Bartlett (@dialmformovies) June 11, 2018 Photo Credit: Robert DeNiro and Wife Grace Hightower from Getty Images / Twitter The post Robert De Niro Is No Longer A Trump Fan appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?......»»
