Voter Suppression in North Dakota Could Be Backfiring on Republicans

When the Supreme Court upheld North Dakota’s strict voter ID law in early October, weeks before the midterm election, there were widespread fears it could lead to significant voter disenfranchisement in the state. Seventy thousand registered voters, including 5,000 Native Americans, lacked the new IDs required by the state, according to a district court. “The […]

Trump: US troops should treat rocks as ‘firearm’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_BaHMUx0QY
(1 Nov 2018) US President Donald Trump says he told the US military mobilizing at the Southwest border that if migrants try to throw rocks at them, the troops should act as though the rocks are "firearms." Trump made the comments Thursday in a speech on immigration. He promised an executive order sometime next week that would ban migrants from claiming asylum if they cross the border illegally, and would set up vast tent cities that would hold anyone coming over the border. US immigration laws say migrants seeking asylum can do so no matter how they arrive at the US. Several caravans of migrants from Central America are slowly winding north. One group got into a violent confrontation with Mexican police at the border with Guatemala, throwing rocks. Trump also spoke about Oprah Winfrey campaining for Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams and how he believes midterms will be a success for Republicans.

Trump wants to limit border asylum claims

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRzDQEasE3k
(1 Nov 2018) U.S. President Donald Trump says asylum seekers must go to ports of entry in order to make a claim. He says he will issue an executive order next week on immigration. In a lengthy speech Thursday, Trump said migrants are abusing the asylum system and making a mockery of immigration laws. "No nation can allow itself to be overwhelmed by uncontrolled masses of people rushing their border," he said. Trump's plans to deny asylum to migrants who try to enter the U.S. between ports of entry - a legally questionable move that was part of his election-season barrage of actions aimed at caravans heading toward the border. It was unclear whether the restrictions Trump was expected to propose would apply only to those traveling in the caravans or extend to all people trying to enter the country. And it also was questionable whether Trump has the legal authority. Under the Immigration and Nationality Act, migrants claiming asylum are allowed to do so at the border crossings, but also if they cross illegally. Trump reiterated that he wanted to set up tent cities to hold people coming to the U.S., including those seeking asylum. But there currently is not enough detention space to hold families who are coming across the border. The military is working to create space, but nothing has been finalized. And laws prevent children from being detained beyond 20 days.
