Keeping Families Together

WASHINGTON — President Trump caved to enormous political pressure on Wednesday and signed an executive order meant to end the separation of families at the border by detaining parents and children together for an indefinite period.

New York Times, 06.20.18

So, Mr. T has decided not to separate immigrant children from their parents in the detention camps at the border, but to keep immigrant families together — in detention camps.

In the Democratic Party, this is known as a landmark victory.

And, needless to say, the Democrats are setting a new record for jumping on an issue and co-opting it for votes, beating their previous personal best set by the March For Our Lives.

Arizona Hurricane Victim

By mike flugennockSaturday - August 26th, 2017Categories: Trumpism, environment

So, as most of you know by now, Trump has pardoned one of the most horrific excuses for a sherriff in US history, one Joe Arpaio, proprietor of the open-air concentration camp in Maricopa County, Arizona, who was convicted of illegally profiling Latin immigrants for arrest.

Ya gotta hand it to the Orange one; his timing was impeccable on this one — handing down the pardon just as Hurricane Harvey was coming ashore on the Texas Gulf Coast at about 125mph, and thousands were evacuating inland — including many Latin immigrants.

To add insult to injury, the Border Patrol and other immigration police kept their checkpoints open to demand immigrants’ papers as they fled the storm, leaving “illegal” immigrants in danger of arrest and deportation. Yeah, that’s right — the goddamn’ La Migra were looking to nab immigrants in the middle of running for their lives. And to add even further insult, the mayor of Rockport, Texas advised anyone not evacuating to write their name and Social Security numbers on their arms so that their bodies could be identified.

Where the Bush Regime’s handling of the Katrina response was merely massively negligent, the Trump Junta’s Harvey response is straight-up malicious. It’s like the Katrina response turned up to 11.

Stop The Raids! July 30

By mike flugennockSaturday - July 10th, 2010Categories: liberty, right wingnuts

I’ve been having a hard time lately coming up with any decent cartoon ideas about the upcoming July 30 sweeps and raids by Sheriff Joe “Heinrich” Arpaio in Arizona in support of their “Papers Please” Law. It seemed all I could come up with were these goddamn’ oil spill cartoons until my comrades at Lady Liberty’s Lamp sent along this iconic old foto of the German Army pulling a raid on a house in the Warsaw Ghetto. Suddenly, the light finally came on in my head; I’ve never been shy of parodying iconic art or fotos, so why not parody this famous foto of Jews being rounded up in Warsaw?

So, here’s one for all my comrades in Arizona, for use on leaflets and for your late-night flypasting pleasure:
