Honestly, I don't even want to write this piece because it just makes me so fucking sad, mad, depressed and well, any other misery you can think of. But here's the start of an AP article I was reading this weekend. Let's see at which point life become meaningless and just a mess for you in processing the words written
PHOENIX (AP) — The 1-year-old boy in a green button-up shirt drank milk from a bottle, played with a small purple ball that lit up when it hit the ground and occasionally asked for “agua.”
Then it was the child’s turn for his court appearance before a Phoenix immigration judge, who could hardly contain his unease with the situation during the portion of the hearing where he asks immigrant defendants whether they understand the proceedings.
“I’m embarrassed to ask it, because I don’t know who you would explain it to, unless you think that a 1-year-old could learn immigration law,” Judge John W. Richardson told the lawyer representing the 1-year-old boy.
This is America. This is us now. What the fuck is wrong with us, man. Is the fear that this baby will come take your jobs, eat your welfare programs and suck the blood out of your cattle that strong that you are okay with this nonsense?
What the hell have we become? Why. What in the fucking fuck fuck fuck fuckskdjasldkasjfkadshfaslsald
There is literally no words in my mind for the bullshit this all just results in. So unneeded. So spiteful. So.. fucking sad. The whole of the country will have a black eye because of the actions of the administration for the next many decades. Especially with the new pick any minute now. But come on, are we really a nation that requires a diaper wearing child to stand in front of a judge and defend themselves when it was not even their choice to cross those imaginary lines?
As a judge, how do you just not stand up and walk out on your job when that is presented in front of you? I don't think there is enough liquor at home to wash down that dirty feeling after a shift, and I have sat through many court rooms where they had to deal with some serious bullshit. I know justice can be blind, but this is just taking it levels above that to a whole new world.
But hey, at least those kids will somehow be reunited with their fol..... oh fuck me. Apparently with a Tuesday deadline to reunite 100 migrant toddlers with their parents, the Feds have reunited a whole 2. They say that the wheels of justice are a rather slow grind, after all. But fuck. This is why sweeping reform and change to how we handle immigrants is needed before you just start blowing it all up.
I wish this was the worst thing I was going to be reading today, but we have Trump's supreme court nomination to deal with tonight as well. So fuck everything.
