    “In their haste to pretend like they care about victims of immigrant crimes, the Trump administration released personally identifiable information regarding vulnerable children at risk of human trafficking and other crimes,” - … story.html

    By late Wednesday evening, the department had fixed the problem. But concerns remained about the amount of private information still easily available to the public, including potential asylum applicants whose identities are supposed to be confidential under DHS policy. - … story.html

    Neurologists at Johns Hopkins University confirmed Monday they remain completely baffled by the 45th President Donald Trump, a man who possesses an extraordinary and previously undocumented ability to f ° ck everything up. Our theory is that Donald approaches f ° cking up unconsciously, his mind automatically creating a fractal model of screwing the pooch that is not unlike the infinite images contained within facing mirrors, according to Dr. William Moore.  ... Where this one man's massive clusterf ° cks originate is still a mystery, but scientists have hypothesized that each individual f ° ckup may compound itself exponentially, expanding in every conceivable direction until a given situation is no longer salvageable. Moore said this phenomenon is most evident when Trump interacts with women, his intricate and novel behavioral patterns simultaneously evoking rage, confusion, revulsion, and indignation. - … to-f-19422,204,203,200_.jpg

    At least he is attempting to TACKLE this horrendous (understatement) problem!

    "The searchable database is the latest effort by the Trump administration to spotlight crimes committed by immigrants who are in the country illegally. It was launched under a high-profile rollout of the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement Office, or VOICE, that is intended to help what administration officials have described as forgotten victims.

    The web site, known as DHS-VINE , is supposed to list everyone currently in federal immigration custody. It allows users to search with as few as three letters of a last name and a first initial, along with country of birth or date of birth. A search by the Los Angeles Times under “A” for first name, “Mar” for last name and Guatemala as country of origin pulled up 50 matches.

    The matches reveal the detention facility the immigrant is housed in, custody status, age, country of birth, date of birth, race, gender and aliases. There doesn’t appear to be any way to distinguish between someone who may have perpetrated a crime beyond being in the country illegally." … story.html

      What they are doing with these policies is marginalizing a group of people who are already marginalized. Are you aware that fewer undocumented women are reporting crimes like rape, for fear that they will be deported, according to the LAPD(1). This is what happens when you increasingly involve law enforcement with immigration. May as well pin a label on those women that says "feel free to abuse me".

        No, what they are doing with these policies is point out that illegal entry and residence in the country is not roses.  That action MUST be taken to enforce our laws.

        Personally, I would absolutely LOVE to see congress finally tackle the problem and provide a solution.  One that is more than simple amnesty; that tactic was tried and we now have the result to live through.

          Hey we agree - I would also LOVE to see that lazy good for nothing Congress that's keeps getting re-elected to finally do the job that they were hired for.

          I was hoping that Trump would 'fire' them by withholding pay and perks until they do the primary job of Congress which is passing a yearly budget. (not just for one week) .... ( ͠° ͟ʖ ͡°)

          We are still in sequestration!

          And Trump's  give away to the super rich labeled as "Tax Reform" doublespeak  will  add $2 Trillion to the Debt  - - … extra-debt

          Some others says will add $5.5 T to the national debt - … debt-cost/

      The "horrendous problem" of a section of society that commits significantly less crime than native born citizens? And I mean per capita, not just in total.

        It is against the law to drive without a license.  Or without insurance.  It is against the law to work without a SS #, and it is against the law to either prove a fake one or to steal one.  It is against the law to be in this country without permission, or to cross the border without permission. 

        In other words, 100% of illegal aliens are violating the law, and usually more than one of them, everyday they are here.

          woah, I thought that were lazy good for nothings hanging out all day on the sidewalk with no job, no car, sucking up all the good air and taking up space. (snark)

          Besides, 100% would include babies and children - but I'm sure you would want to lock them up or return refugees back to a the country taken over by drug warlords & political corruption. Awesome generosity by a comfortable American with no worries.

            If they are here illegally then yes, send them home.  Old, young, women and men - send them home if here illegally. 

            Might make an exception for young children here that have no family, though.  Other than that, if you want to see generosity by a comfortable American, given them your home and belongings.

                Thank you - as usual, name calling says it all.

                  Sad to think people actually think that way. Your not trolling -  you really believe this stuff, and there are millions of people who agree with you. Sorry  I hurt your feelings. I snapped that a person could be so cruel with such lack of caring for other human beings.

                  Some examples of repulsive beliefs - that  I'm not accusing you of having personally.I just finished reading the comment section of the Sacramento Bee, and I'm glad I don't live in Sacramento.

                  It seems like minorities, gays and other groups don't want equal rights, they want special rights just for them.

                  Productivity is greatest when the boss gives the orders and the rest follow instructions.

                  Households tend to run the smoothest if the father guides the family in most decisions

                  The true American way of life is disappearing so fast that force may be necessary to preserve it

                  The people from Mexico who have recently come to the U.S. have mainly brought problems and trouble with them.

                  Foreigners coming into our country often take jobs away from citizens and/or end up taking welfare benefits.

                    The first 3 are obviously (to me) false.  The last three have more truth than falsehood.  We can discuss this if you wish, and can remain civil.

                    May I add some?

                    All possessions, particularly money, belong to the government.  Private ownership is denied.

                    The people of the US are responsible for the well being, safety and government of all people worldwide.

                    Government is responsible for providing all the needs of all citizens, to be accomplished via the "Robin Hood" method of wealth equalization through confiscation of personal property.

    Unfortunately, the first sentence of the Times article said it all: "This will be another try at Bashing Trump, and nothing said herein can thus be believed."

    The scholarly dissertation from the Onion, on the other hand, is quite funny - thanks!
