From CNN: Trump admin drops asylum protections for domestic violence victims. Yes, you are reading that correctly. From the article:
The Trump administration Monday overturned asylum protections for domestic violence victims in a decision that could affect thousands of asylum seekers from Central America.
But it gets worse because of course it does, this is a pre-apocalyptic hellscape we just haven’t been nuked quite yet but that is eventually coming:
Sessions’ decision sets a high bar for victims of crime to qualify for asylum protections. Not only must the government of the home country be unable or unwilling to help the victims, Sessions ruled, but “the applicant must show that the government condoned the private actions or demonstrated an inability to protect the victims.”
Oh yeah, that’s not difficult to prove at all. 🙄 But hey, at least we won’t have to deal with all those people from all those “shithole” countries stinking up the US, amirite?
Sorry, but there’s only one shithole that I see and it happens to be right here:
On days like this, the amount of curse words in the English language isn’t enough to satisfy my needs or wants. Maybe I should study Klingon. Or Vulcan.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be off somewhere, getting very, very drunk. Because fuck this noise, why not?
