He Lies

From the Washington Post: President Trump made 8,158 false or misleading claims in his first two years.

DKos notes all the times Trump rejected bipartisan proposals to protect DACA recipients in 2017 and 2018, many after he said he agreed.

A quick read of Mitch McConnell’s 1,100 page version of Trump’s latest proposal shows shows it guts US asylum laws, something Trump failed to mention.

It is really difficult to have any meaningful negotiations with the US version of Baron Munchausen.

Nothing will get done if Mitch McConnell and Ann Coulter aren’t at the table. 😈

Not Much Of A Barrier

CBS reports that the Border Patrol arrested 200 adults, 176 children who dug under border wall in Arizona:

San Luis, Ariz. — A group of 376 Central Americans was arrested in southwest Arizona, the vast majority of them families who dug short, shallow holes under a barrier to cross the border, authorities said Friday. The group dug under a steel barrier in seven spots about 10 miles east of a border crossing in San Luis and made no effort to elude immigration agents. They included 176 children.

The unusually large group was almost entirely from Guatemala. They were taken to Yuma after entering the country Monday.

As they were from Guatemala it is probable they were Mayans, i.e. among the original inhabitants of the hemisphere. The original people, called collectively by the late arriving Euros as Los Indios, are always treated the worst. They were seeking asylum so they didn’t attempt to evade the Border Patrol.
