Shit.
Meanwhile, Illinois passes a law making it illegal for a landlord to evict a tennant due to their lack of citizenship.

It just doesn't stop: The Prez has thought up a new way to lessen the population of his concentration camps-Let them die off from the flu.

The U.S. government will not give flu vaccines to migrant families being held in detention centers near the U.S.-Mexico border. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced the decision Tuesday, weeks before the flu season begins.
Is there any word about whether detainees in other camps get the vaccine?

I will have to say that Trump is not Hitler, but he is a very dedicated Nazi cosplayer.

And after looking at the neo concentration camps, there was a difference even with many of the non death camps of WWII: deliberate neglect corresponded with the German policy to cause the deaths of large numbers of Jews and POWs through over-crowded, squalid living conditions and a lack of reasonable medical care.

Of course I did say that there was a difference...

..was.

Nasty Nazi cosplayer that Trump is, he can not set the current camps more harsher (Why do I feel though that he will still try?) so letting nature "dispose" of the immigrants and refugees is a convenient way to try to avoid responsibility. But, as me and other historians conclude, the holocaust denier's excuse that 'disease in the camps = that the Nazis were blameless' is poppy cock. Even then the fascists knew how to set things up so as to make specific (supposedly) non death camps to be as deadly as possible. While today this will not be as bad as Typhus, it is very naive for the administration to avoid responsibility for the unnecessary danger and likely deaths that can follow.

I fear that what will be remembered is not what this administration did, but what we as a nation didn't do.

I was heartened to see protesters this weekend, organized under a banner of CCCC: Coalition to Close the Concentration Camps.

Yes, sadly.

Relevant meme: "Did you ever wonder what you would have done during slavery, the Holocaust, or the civil rights movement? You're doing it now."
