Major announcement could be coming later today, apparently.

Fox News wrote:Trump expected to announce end to Obama-era DACA as early as today, official says

President Trump, as early as Friday, is expected to announce plans to end the Obama administration program that gave a deportation reprieve to hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants [up to 800,000 people], a senior administration official told Fox News.

Trump promised to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, during the presidential campaign -- but since taking office had left the door open to preserving parts of it.

According to the official, Trump is expected to announce the program's end but will allow so-called “dreamers” currently in the program to stay in the U.S. until their work permits expire – which, for some, could be as long as two years.

The White House suggested Thursday afternoon, though, that Trump has yet to give the final sign-off. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters at the daily briefing the program is still “under review.”

“A final decision on that front has not been made, and when it is, we will certainly inform everybody in this room,” she said.

The program was formed through executive order by then-President Barack Obama in 2012 and allows for certain people who came to the U.S. illegally as minors to be protected from immediate deportation.

Recipients are able to request “consideration of deferred action” for a period of two years which is subject to renewal.


The Verge wrote:Satya Nadella and Microsoft take strong stance against reported end to DACA

Following reports that the Trump administration may soon end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, Microsoft president and chief legal officer Brad Smith said in a blog post that “changes would not only negatively impact thousands of hardworking people across the United States, but will be a step backwards for our entire nation.”

The statement was one of two quickly issued by the company after Fox News reported that Trump may roll back the Obama-era program, which allows immigrants who came to the United States as children to stay if they meet certain requirements. After suggesting at various points that he would end the program, Trump, more recently, seemed to back away from the suggestion. If reports are accurate, he could now be moving ahead with changes.

Smith notes in his statement that 27 of Microsoft’s employees are DACA beneficiaries. “They are software engineers with top technical skills; finance professionals driving our business ambitions forward; and retail and sales associates connecting customers to our technologies,” Smith writes. “Each of them is actively participating in our collective mission to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.”

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella issued the second statement from the company, which took a more a personal tone. “As I shared at the White House in June, I am a product of two uniquely American attributes: the ingenuity of American technology reaching me where I was growing up, fueling my dreams, and the enlightened immigration policy that allowed me to pursue my dreams,” Nadella writes. He adds that “smart immigration can help our economic growth and global competitiveness.”

If we are going with the theory that God will send floods because of his massive disapproval of an elected political leader, then maybe she should be looking at who has recently taken over as President? A far more credible theory is that the Muslims are right and Allah is pissed off at Trump’s travel ban.


have you got a better explanation? :|


Yes, I just posted one.

And now pretty much confirmed:

CBS News via Apple News wrote:President Trump has decided to end the 2012 program implemented by President Obama that has deferred deportations for people who came to the U.S. undocumented as children, CBS News Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett reports.

The president will end the program by not accepting new permits and by allowing existing permits to expire with no opportunity to reapply, Garrett reports, citing two Republican sources on Capitol Hill.

The timing of the announcement of end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program, known as DACA, is fluid -- it's expected by some on Capitol Hill to be Friday days before a Sept. 5 deadline, Garrett says, citing the two Republican hill sources. However, a senior administration official told Garrett that the formal announcement could be delayed until next week.

Several Republican attorneys general have imposed a Sept. 5 to end DACA or they will sue the Trump administration.

In other words 'you're outta here'.

So much for conservative compassion.

Yes, that's right. Do away with something before you have anything ready to take its place, and then slowly let it fade away from the public eye. The Republican Way.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

DOJ to retry woman who laughed during Sessions' confirmation hearing

Washington (CNN)The Department of Justice will retry a woman whom prosecutors say disrupted Jeff Sessions' confirmation hearing for attorney general by laughing.

After rejecting a plea deal, Desiree Fairooz will again face charges of unlawful conduct for disrupting Sessions' hearing in January.

According to court records, Fairooz rejected a deal offered by prosecutors that would have required her to plead guilty in exchange for a recommended sentence of time served.

Fairooz was detained after audibly laughing after Sen. Richard Shelby told senators at Sessions' confirmation hearing that the then-Alabama senator had a record of "treating all Americans equally under the law."

This isn't just any bullshit, this is premium quality, free-range, extra thin-skinned bullshit, hand-reared at the prestigious Trump Ranch & Winery.

So Obstruction of Justice then. Mueller has a copy of the letter Trump and Stephen Miller drafted about firing James Comey, before the lawyers got involved. NYT not seen it, but Bob Mueller certainly knows what Trump really wanted to say.

Oh and Trump and John Kelly are starting to get on each others nerves. :D

Has anyone seen this?

Apparently, landlords are charging rent to flooded houses in Texas. That is one of the most heartless things I've ever heard.

Man if you were wondering why Clinton lost the election all of these bits of her book that are coming out are very revealing. The woman is incapable of even recognising her own failures as a candidate.

The one that got me was some awful evangelical dickhead actually trying to collect money from the now homeless survivors of the hurricane.

That's strawberry floating scary.


Virtually every post on this page is incredibly depressing. Inhumane strawberry floats, all spurred on by the worst one of all.

And those Americans don't sound great either.
