Immigrant toddlers are ordered to show up in court alone.

Seriously, WTF?

Courtesy of The Texas Tribune:

As the White House faces court orders to reunite families separated at the border, immigrant children as young as 3 are being ordered into court for their own deportation proceedings, according to attorneys in Texas, California and Washington, D.C.

Requiring unaccompanied minors to go through deportation alone is not a new practice. But in the wake of the Trump administration’s controversial family separation policy, more young children — including toddlers — are being affected than in the past.

The 2,000-plus children will likely need to deal with court proceedings even as they grapple with the ongoing trauma of being taken from their parents.

“We were representing a 3-year-old in court recently who had been separated from the parents. And the child — in the middle of the hearing — started climbing up on the table,” said Lindsay Toczylowski, executive director of Immigrant Defenders Law Center in Los Angeles. “It really highlighted the absurdity of what we’re doing with these kids.”

Okay is it just me, or do we reach a new level of absurdity every day since Trump took office? 

They’re now having babies show up to testify on their own behalf in a courtroom? 

Like I said at the beginning of this post, WTF?

      “I have great respect for … Justice Anthony — you know who I’m talking about — Justice Kennedy,” President Trump said as he stumbled over Kennedy’s name.”…” It’s one the most famous names in American history.””

        Mini strokes!

        Also he has two new obsessions: being called elite or super elite and renting land to “those rich guys that are building rockets”

        No wonder all his businesses go bankrupt, if those “rich guys” have the money to build rockets, they certainly have the money to BUY land for the launch pad.

    OT:

    “In a statement Wednesday, Murkowski said she would “carefully scrutinize” Trump’s pick, adding that she believes Kennedy “held the court together and did right by the Constitution.””
    “Collins addressed Roe specifically, telling reporters Wednesday, “I view Roe v. Wade as being settled law. It’s clearly precedent. I always look for judges who respect precedent.””

    He is trying to get a rise out of (fill in)?
    Seems to me he’s doing ANYTHING to get a “reaction” out of (fill in)? Who it is should be the question. Then why is he doing it? Distraction from looting the US? I hate to say this. Digital has encrypted hard copy of any records dating back centuries. This has been done all over the world. He and his conspiriators can shuffle money around all they want. It can be tracked and found. They laugh at that. I ask the simple question of “who” did this work?
    Peasants. Uh. Oh. Not funny now! Smile.
    Gotta love the small guy. Winning!!!!!!

    These people are really mentally ill, who sends a toddler to court, let alone by themselves.
