    Well, he said he wanted people to sit up for him the way they do for Kim. He probably wasn't lying.

    "I think we could all do with sitting back a bit and detaching ourselves from the situation to really think about how these issues reflect on our future and how we discuss them here and be a bit less aggressive or defensive because everyone has a complicated set of circumstances that has led the to place importance on particular issues and it doesn't meany any of them is less valid, we just need to look at the broader picture"

    Curious to see what happens with Beto O'Rourke's visit tomorrow.

    It's something congress has the power to keep a spotlight on. We'll see if it holds any long-term attention, but absent a major increase in scale, I suspect you're right and it will pass on the "one more thing on the road to fascism" process of being overwhelmed as a civil society.

    The republican base doesn't care because immigrants have been dehumanised in the media and by politicians in America for so long. There's a reason they get called aliens.

    It's deeply ingrained in the culture. Look at Alien Nation, that came out way back in '88

    so you guys think there will be a democratic platform announced anytime soon? i mean, it's already mid-june.

    Curious to see what happens with Beto O'Rourke's visit tomorrow.
    Sitting US senators have been denied all entry to these facilities and have had the police called on them.

    Yes, it is the technically correct term for someone from outside.

    Yes, it is dehumanizing in public perception and doesn't help with integration at all.
