1/A few things for context on today's #TrumpImmigration announcement:

1) It doesn't have a chance as proposed
2) That doesn't matter
3) It will end family immigration as we know it
4) It will strongly favor whiteness & wealth
5) It does nothing for #DREAMers or undocumented
2/ "This plan was not developed by politicians. It was developed by people you respect."

Not how I'd describe Stephen Miller but ok
3/ No surprise: proposal starts with a massive border militarization package to be paid for by a "trust fund" funded by fees "from the border itself."

Leave it to this guy to solve everything with a trust fund, amirite

1/ BREAKING: @TheJusticeDept has just authorized immigration judges to deny #asylum applications without a hearing. Like most Trump-era administrative violence, it has been unnoticed & unreported.

*sound of Scotch pouring into glass*

2/ Important context: As head of @TheJusticeDept, the Attorney General has final say over all cases before the administrative #immigration courts. AG may snatch a case away from the Board of Immigration Appeals anytime and decide it himself by directing BIA to refer it to him.
3/ Here is the 2014 BIA holding--upholding precedent from 1989--which the AG was so intent on getting to his own desk. It may not mean much to anyone who had the good sense not to go to law school, but take a shot. (No, really: *take an actual shot* and give it a try.)
