People Raise Thousands Of Dollars For Man Who Said No To ICE

Fighting the evil which of this administration, and the Republican controlled  Congress, requires sacrifice. This gentleman did his part in the #resistance. And those who came to his aid also did the same:

Jordon Dyrdahl-Roberts made headlines last Wednesday when he tweeted that he’d quit his government job rather than process paperwork that could lead to the arrest and deportation of undocumented immigrants.

Now he’s broke and out of work. But his stand against President Donald Trump’s treatment of immigrant families has inspired hundreds of people to reach out and say thanks ― and to set up a GoFundMe page for him. In a matter of days, as of Tuesday, they had raised more than $11,000 to help Dyrdahl-Roberts regain financial footing.

“I am deeply humbled,” he told HuffPost, choking up. “I’ve got some breathing room now.”

 

Trump Attorney General Jeff Sessions makes reference to the “Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement”

The Trump administration doesn’t even care anymore whether they are called racists. They are going full white supremacist:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions sparked controversy Monday after making reference to the “Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement,” a comment interpreted by some critics as racially insensitive.

The remark was made in a speech to the National Sheriffs’ Association’s winter conference in Washington, D.C., as he thanked those in attendance and outlined the history of their positions in law enforcement.

“I want to thank every sheriff in America. Since our founding, the independently elected sheriff has been the people’s protector, who keeps law enforcement close to, and accountable to, people through the elected process,” said Sessions, adding, “The office of sheriff is a critical part of the Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement.”

Twisted: Trump says Porter sick, guilty; defends him publicly

President Trump is defending Rob Porter even though, privately, he says he’s guilty.

Behind closed doors: The president has told multiple people that he believes the accusations about Porter, and finds him “sick.”

Four sources who have spoken directly with Trump tell me his private comments about ex-aide Porter — whose two ex-wives accused of violent attacks — have been brutal.

But his public comments don’t reflect that, at all.

This is the strongest indicator yet that Trump will reflexively defend his male allies from any and all accusations, even when he thinks those accusations are true.
Trump tells friends that he deplores the #MeToo movement and believes it unfairly exposes CEOs to lawsuits from their female employees. The fact that women frequently face sexual predation in the workplace doesn’t impact his view on this.
