That’s my old agency coming down on you, @EPAScottPruitt. (Way to go OGE!)

It’s time for you to go.

You‘re literally going to be THE case study in training for future cabinet officials.

In case you don’t know, your name is already a verb in govt ethics circles in and out of govt.

:P

Nielsen is executing this immoral policy. She is culpable. She should never ever be allowed to play the “but I was really against it” card when shame trails her for the rest of her days. She should resign and denounce or embrace her legacy. She will join her colleagues in infamy

 As a child I remember watching the Adolf Eichmann Trial in Israel on television.  They had Eichmann encased in a glass box and he had big black-rimmed glasses. He was a tall bald-headed man.

My father had been in World War II, so I asked him what this man had done in the war to get him into so much trouble.

My father said that while Eichmann hadn't really run any of these death camps, he had been in charge of deporting Jewish people to the death camps.

The only other thing I remember about his trial was that he kept on saying that he was just following orders.

As an adult I learned that he was in charge of the logistics for the deportation of Jews in Europe to Holocaust death camps.

And that's what the Israeli government found him guilty of doing as a crime against humanity and he was hanged in 1962.

What made his story all the more intriguing was that he was hiding in Argentina when the Israeli intelligence service, Mossad, found him and brought him back to Israel to stand trial.

This misreporting by Members, press & advocacy groups must stop. It is irresponsible and unproductive. As I have said many times before, if you are seeking asylum for your family, there is no reason to break the law and illegally cross between ports of entry.

We do not have a policy of separating families at the border. Period.

Propaganda machines are used to not only to confuse people but also to threaten them.

Bill Kristol Retweeted Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen

The use of "Period" is Kirstjen Nielsen's way of signaling this is a hostage tweet. After all, what previous Trump Administration official famously used this term? Sean Spicer, when he was defending a lie: "This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period."

If you try to contest this you will be sorry-- that's also called a threat.

First, they bragged about this abhorrent policy of family separation. Then Trump started blaming it on the Democrats. Then he copped to using it as leverage to get his wall. Then @SecNielsen claims that it isn’t even happening. They could just stop it.

Can't even get their act together.

Joaquin Castro Retweeted Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen

Even though others in the Trump Administration have admitted to family separation, @SecNielsen denies reality. Secretary, your reputation will be forever damaged by your role in inflicting trauma on young children as leverage to get a border wall.

Accountability, culpability, mendacity

It's incredible that this is happening:

The Commerce Secretary, aware of a coming negative story about his links to a Kremlin-linked firm,

shorts the stock and sells after the story publishes

Nielsen says the idea that this is a deterrent is offensive.

"Why would I ever create a policy that purposely does this?"

John Kelly, her mentor, last year: "I am considering, in order to deter more movement along this terribly dangerous network, I am considering exactly that."

Ted LieuVerified account @tedlieu 7h7 hours ago

 
 

This lie is the last straw.

I join @KamalaHarris in calling on Secretary Nielsen to resign. It's not just that @SecNielsen has a policy of ripping children away from parents, it's her volume of lies about the new policy.

Her credibility has been shredded.

Nielsen needs to go.

<_<

In a media universe consumed by the outrage of children torn from their parents,

the FORBES Magazine reporting of the flat-out scandalous financial deeds of Commerce Sec. Ross is going to slip under the radar.

It shouldn't.

Family separator Kirstjen Nielsen dines in, of all places, a Mexican restaurant, where she's predictably met with protests. Maybe there's a nearby Chinese restaurant she can try next when her boss piles more tariffs on China.

Mortensen has spread misinformation about immigrants & displayed a lack of empathy for innocent people fleeing oppression.

An 85-year-old document on the family history of Stephen Miller, an architect of the administration’s family separation policy, undermines his anti-immigrant stance.

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/stephen-miller-great-grandfather-naturalization_us_5b2ba35ae4b0040e27403e42?section=politics&ncid=tweetlnkushpmg00000016

* Stephen Miller, the Chief Architect of Trump's zero Toleration immigration policy, descends from 20th century foreign immigrants himself.

Stephen's maternal great grandparents were poor Jews from Russia, speaking Yiddish, who left to escape the Czar's pogroms in the early 1900s.

Stephen Miller became Infamous in his own high school as the student who harassed the Latino custodian.

 

* donald trump's own mother Mary McLeod came to the United States as late as 1930, a poor Scottish immigrant, who worked as a maid.
