    Trump now targeting legal immigrants

    US President Donald Trump's administration is to make it more difficult for poorer legal migrants to extend their visas or gain permanent resident status (a green card).

    The rule targets migrants who rely on public benefits, such as food aid or public housing, for more than a year.

    Their applications will be rejected if the government decides they are likely to rely on public assistance in future.

    What with this and Priti Patel's recent comments, it feels like some governments are becoming more blatant about putting the wealthy over the poor.

    One of the comments stated that the government pays the private contractors who run the facility $800 a day per child.
    Not too sure if that is true.

    I've heard figures ranging from $750 to $800. It's probably true. You'd think they could afford a bit of soap and toothpaste out of that.

    Don Troooomp Condescension and embedded self importance

    The fact it needs a court order to force Trump and his pals to allow people to wash properly and clean their teeth says a lot. I'm seriously shocked that shit was even considered, much less enacted in what is supposed to be a 21st century country. It's not quite actual torture, but it's way to close to be decent and reasonable.

    The hatred this PotUS stirs up, especially in the ME. It's jaw dropping.

    Does he know Greenland is the icy one and Iceland is the green one?

    Sounds like a classic Trump distraction technique. What else is making the news that he wants hidden?

    With climate change, is it projected to stay that way?

    I came here to post that. Thankfully the Danish foreign minister has told him to fuck off (more diplomatically than that, obviously). I love Greenland's multicoloured houses, makes you think it must be such a happy place. Why can't we be more like that…? Every single house along this road is either pebble-dashed, brick or white. Wales seems to be 'going Scandinavian', just think it would make the country seem much less depressing,

    (I've probably used up my off-topic post quota now, haven't I…?).

    Greenland has the highest suicide rate in the world.

    I agree with the sentiment though. Modern housing estates in particular are so beige. I'd love to see some new takes on Brutilisim though too!

    I suggest you are doing it wrong. US administration doesn't just sit around waiting for the President to micro manage what it is doing...You would do better looking for what story isn't making the news. To that I say, fair play and about time
