    I don’t know. Every day it seems like there is more evidence that this administration is filled with horrible people whose attitude towards minorities and immigrants (especially immigrants/asylum seekers who are minorities) is that of absolute malice.

    The media is also filled with stories where parents have said that their kids were kept in what seem to be horrible and filthy conditions.

    As you said, I don’t see why Trump and company should get any benefit of the doubt here. When Trump was in Europe, he made frequent remarks against immigration and how it destroys the character of Europe and Europeans. If Trump has anything close to sincerely held beliefs it is xenophobia/racism and that tariffs are good.

    His admin learned that they can’t get away with everything but they are zealots and true believers, this seems to be inflicting pain by other means and hoping for “self-deportation.”Report

    Trump and his administration are acting on sincerely held beliefs when it comes to ending immigration as frequently demonstrated by their public statements. Even if they know they can’t get away with some things, they will try to twist the orders in a way that allows them to further their goals or do it in the most mealy-mouthed way possible.Report
