    I guess it doesn't really matter. I was just curious.

    Who was in charge of DOJ at the time? What would the political purpose of ratcheting down the numbers have been, intending to accomplish what?

    Political Pot-pourri

    In other news: This is a de facto win for the Republicans. The Supreme Court on Monday passed up its two opportunities this term to rule on when and whether states violate the Constitution by drawing electoral maps that sharply favor one political party. Ruling in cases from Wisconsin and Maryland, the justices gave little clarity to when so-called partisan gerrymandering goes further than the law allows. In the Maryland case, the Supreme Court unanimously upheld a district court judge's decision not to grant a preliminary injunction blocking the state's 2011 congressional map. The justices said the legal uncertainty around the issue justified the judge declining to act. In the Wisconsin dispute, the justices ruled unanimously that the Democratic voters challenging the state legislative map failed to prove they were injured by the drawing of the new boundaries. However, seven justices agreed to give the challengers another shot at making their case in the lower courts.

    Interesting how step 2 also notes that the detainee will go before a judge "for having violated the law", rather than "to have your case heard". As in, it makes no sense for you to present your case because you are already guilty. #We'reAmericaBitch

    This, combined with this: https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/ice-chief-thomas-homan-illegal-immigrant-children-better-care-american-kids ... provides me some insight into why Trumpers and their apologists think separating children from their parents is perfectly acceptable: they make it seem like the kids are being treated to a resort, or a summer camp, instead of being confined to a prison-like facility.

    Looks like The Third Lady is playing the Good Cop card in blaming and pressuring Democrats on this issue. First Lady Melania Trump, who rarely weighs in on policy, told CNN through her spokeswoman: "Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform ... She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart."

    Also, an intent to make white people feel warm and fuzzy. Although, if this forum is any indication, it's not totally working.

    They're thisclose to modifying the word into "Demoncrat". That's when they'll have jumped the shark.

    Looks like Republicans and other conservatives might be going down that rabbit hole, too. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/family-separation-policy-starts-dividing-republicans/

    Trump blaming Democrats for his own family separation policy is like a man blaming his wife for making him hit her.
