I appreciate the sentiment but, for starters, five days ago live on national television I asked the lead sponsor of the Biden admin’s immigration bill about how it doesn’t eliminate immigration detention or 8 U.S. Code § 1325.
Here’s a discussion from earlier this month on whether there will be accountability for family separations under the Biden admin.
From the border, also this month, our exclusive reporting on the twice-delayed family separation task force.
At the end of last month, we talked about how rolling back Trump’s immigration policies alone will not undo the damage caused by a bipartisan and decades-old punitive system.
The day before that, we reported on the role Biden’s acting AG had in the early days of the family separation pilot program.
All this to say, sincerely, thanks for your interest. We are not going anywhere.

President Biden will sign immigration-related executive orders, including one he promised during the campaign to create a family separation reunification task force, at 5PM ET Tuesday in the Oval Office with VP Harris present, according to the White House.
A senior administration official said the task force will be responsible for "identifying all minor children that were separated from their parents or legal guardians at the U.S.-Mexico border due to Trump's 'zero tolerance' policy." nbcnews.com/politics/immig…
I asked whether those separated before “zero tolerance” would be eligible for reunification. SAO said task force would consider families separated under pilot, evaluating on "individual basis” for “preference of the family” and “well-being of children." nbcnews.com/politics/immig…

This Fauci interview by @tonydokoupil could be my beloved skinny tie's finest hour. (Tony has it on semi-permanent loan.)
Come to think of it, there should be an app for news people who want to do clothing swaps. I am like Doug of Nickelodeon fame, wearing the same thing over and over. In this case, I just left my tie on their stroller one day.
I, of course, would request a pair of the Kornacki khakis.
