I see how some of your families migrated to the US. My grandparents entered through Ellis Island in 1910 with 4 kids(my father was not born yet) They were held for a few days of health checks and were admitted in. I believe most immigrants were admitted the same way. With the policies of today most of your parents or grandparents would not of been allowed to immigrate and you would not be here now.

And for obvious reasons. Back then, the country was still growing at a rapid pace and needed labor in all areas. That is not the case today. Today, the country has specific needs with regard to labor and immigration. And, of course, there are always cases of actual refugees needing help to be considered. But the days of an open door are in the past and an immigration policy based on the best interest of the country with an appropriate amount of humanity is what is needed.

USA does not have an open door policy on immigration. How the United States Immigration System Works. Link is dated August 2016.

Best Lawyer Ever. Michael Cohen pays $130,000 to Stormy Daniels out of his own pocket in October 2016. Did not seek reimbursement from Donald. Neither Donald or Donald’s Campaign knew anything about the payment.

And there was NO Affair.

The Question remains, WHY would Donald’s lawyer pay $130,000 out of his own pocket to a Porn Star for No Reason?

Do Congressional Republicans Know Women Can Vote?


Quote:
We are long past the unapologetic misogyny of President Trump or the hypocrisy of his evangelical supporters. But GOP lawmakers will be trying to lose seats if they galvanize women against them with their complicity on this issue. Sure, the tax reform bill seems to have curbed the Democratic wave’s velocity during the last four weeks, but the threat to the GOP majority remains.

Even among the rock-solid base Trump has enjoyed from the start, support has begun to erode among a core constituency: white women without a college degree who helped him win the Rust Belt. His support among this group has dropped dramatically in some places -- by 18 percentage points in Ohio and 19 in Wisconsin and Minnesota -- Ron Brownstein noted in The Atlantic.

Trump’s former chief strategist and now banished adviser, Steve Bannon, is worried Oprah Winfrey could campaign for Democrats in the midterms and become an existential threat to Trump’s presidency. While watching the Golden Globes with “Devil's Bargain” author Joshua Green, Bannon told him that the backlash from women and the #MeToo movement is “more powerful than populism,” and that nothing will ever be the same again. “You watch. The time has come,” he said. “Women are gonna take charge of society. And they couldn’t juxtapose a better villain than Trump. He is the patriarch. This is a definitional moment in the culture.”
Quote:
Republicans under the influence of Trump have been criticized for embracing debt and lying and attacking the free press and failing to insist the president enforce the sanctions against Russia that Congress passed overwhelmingly, and for joining a Trump-allied campaign to impugn the Department of Justice and the FBI. It cannot be too much to ask that they condemn domestic violence.

If Hillary Clinton were president, and were employing a wife beater with an interim security clearance, the GOP would bring the nation’s capital to a standstill. With daughters and wives, mothers and sisters, Republicans who cry foul over the behavior of Harvey Weinstein can’t seem to call out Porter for hitting his wife in the face.

I have seen this mentioned a few times on this thread. I don't believe you can compare 1910 to 2018.

Well, everyone knows there is some reason, and likely at least two. One likely is to cover Donald's ass. The other would be that a $130,000 investment is a mere pittance to pay if it guarantees you will continue to make millions from your client.

But there was NO affair. According to Michael Cohen and Donald.

So we are expected to believe that Stormy Daniels was paid $130,000 for absolutely no reason. Because there was NO affair.

We don't actually know if there was an affair, or a one night stand or something happened that made it look like something could have happened . The one thing we all know is that you don't pay $130,000 to someone for absolutely no reason.

We have Stormy Daniels interview from 2011. That is pretty incriminating.

White House reels as FBI director contradicts official claims about alleged abuser

Quote:
Inside the building, officials privately griped that Kelly and McGahn could have better managed the crisis by admitting mistakes, promising to overhaul the security clearance process and protecting the president.

Instead, these people said, Kelly seemed to shirk blame, grumbling to at least one confidant that the communications office should be held partly responsible. In internal conversations, Kelly sounded defensive and complained that the media was overhyping the story, according to a senior White House official who spoke with him.

But not all of Kelly’s team shared his view. During Wray’s testimony, another White House aide texted a Washington Post reporter, describing the moment as “a killer.”

When asked if Kelly could have been more transparent or truthful, that official wrote: “In this White House, it’s simply not in our DNA. Truthful and transparent is great, but we don’t even have a coherent strategy to obfuscate.”
