Read the Washington Post article for personal stories from Trump’s former undocumented laborers. One of them notes that he now lives in a Costa Rica home that was built with “Trump money” – even though he was paid far less than a legal worker would have been. Another says that Trump’s managers hid her and others from him when he visited the property because only English speakers were allowed to be in his presence.

The volunteers will get food for free is what they are trying to spin. Doesn’t work that way.

Reuters reports:

Immigrants and activists say facilities such as Adelanto, owned by Boca Raton, Fla.-based Geo Group Inc, the nation’s largest for-profit corrections company, deliberately skimp on essentials, even food, to coerce detainees to labor for pennies an hour to supplement meager rations.

 

RELATED: In late 2017, Geo Group executives partied lavishly at Trump’s Miami golf resort after landing a $110 million federal contract. That contract came months after they donated six figures to a pro-Trump super PAC.

Trump administration considers rollback of anti-discrimination rules

Filed under: Bigotry, Criminal, Economics, Fascism, Harm, History, News, Political, Questions, Race — Scottie @ 11:33

No body ever try to tell me again that Republicans are not racist or what supremacists.  Yes this has been a goal of the leaders, but if you still support this party, this president, their goals, you honestly are a racist white supremacist.  Own it.   People wake up.  This is so like Germany in the 1930’s.   They did not start out with ovens.  It started with demonizing a segment of the population.   Making laws to favor a majority white national class.  Remember women were regulated to basically breeding stock for Aryan males.  They were basically forced to have babies from different men.   They had no control over their bodies or sexual organs.  We are dangerously close to that time in this country.   One party in Germany got into power and change the rules to gain and keep power regardless of what the majority of the population wanted.   Sound like any party in our country today.   Wake up, get angry, fight back now before it is too late to fight at all.   Hugs

The Trump administration is considering a far-reaching rollback of civil rights law that would dilute federal rules against discrimination in education, housing and other aspects of American life, people familiar with the discussions said.

A recent internal Justice Department memo directed senior civil rights officials to examine how decades-old “disparate impact” regulations might be changed or removed in their areas of expertise, and what the impact might be, according to people familiar with the matter. Similar action is being considered at the Education Department and is underway at the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Under the concept of disparate impact, actions can amount to discrimination if they have an uneven effect even if that was not the intent, and rolling back this approach has been a longtime goal of conservative legal thinkers. Past Republican administrations have done little to erode the concept’s application, partly out of concerns that the Supreme Court might disagree, or that such changes would be unpopular and viewed as racist.

The Trump administration signaled its hostility to this approach in a report issued last week by the Federal Commission on School Safety, which recommended rescinding the school discipline guidance. In a sharply worded and controversial chapter, the report said the validity of disparate impact analysis “cannot be squared with the Supreme Court’s holdings.” The administration revoked the guidance a few days later.

A great post from Infidel753.

Video of the day — don’t blame the atheists


Atheist activist AronRa speaks in Austin, Texas.  This is the kind of hard-hitting, confrontational stance toward religion that we need more of — and he doesn’t shy away, as so many do, from addressing the international aspect of the problem.  As the importance of technology in every area of life increases, a nation dominated by absurd superstitions and an irrational view of the world cannot maintain its leadership position, not when western Europe and the advanced East Asian nations have mostly left such encumbrances behind.  The influence of the Christian Right is hobbling the United States, slowing our progress and even dragging us backward, while others advance.

Oh, and if you think the humiliating picture he paints is attributable to Trump, this speech was delivered in 2012.  Since Trump took office and the anti-science party assumed full control of the government, the situation has gotten even worse.
