    Homeland Security Shifted $10 Million From FEMA For Immigrant Crackdown, Senator Says
    Nick Visser,HuffPost 11 hours ago

    The Trump administration transferred nearly $10 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency earlier this year to fund immigrant detention and deportation efforts, according to a document released Tuesday by Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore).

    The lawmaker first shared the documents with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, saying that the Department of Homeland Security requested the money “just as hurricane season [was] starting” and as it was attempting to fund Immigration and Customs Enforcement in the midst of its new “zero tolerance” immigration policy. The controversial crackdown resulted in the separation of thousands of migrant children from their parents, hundreds of whom have yet to be reunited.

    “This is a scandal. At the start of hurricane season — when American citizens in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands are still suffering from FEMA’s inadequate recovery efforts — the administration transferred millions of dollars away from FEMA,” Merkley said in a statement to HuffPost. “And for what? To implement their profoundly misguided ‘zero tolerance’ policy. It wasn’t enough to rip thousands of children out of the arms of their parents — the administration chose to partly pay for this horrific program by taking away from the ability to respond to damage from this year’s upcoming and potentially devastating hurricane season.”

    What, you mean you're not just accepting his "everyone sees it this way" debate parameter that immigration enforcement is frivolous, unnecessary, and outrageous?!

    Trump doesn’t give a shit about the peasantry. If you understand that, you understand everything Trump does.

    Speaking of frivolous and unnecessary, this lame attempt to gin up controversy leaps to mind.

    I don't think the people on the eastern seaboard see it that way at this particular time.
