Greetings Webtaculators! What a week, right? On to the news.
STORY OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Donald Trump Does Not Believe In The Law Of The Country He Is Sworn To Protect
Why: Because… who the hell knows. To quickly go over what Trump did regarding immigrants in the past week – Trump’s administration created a policy to separate children from the parents of all individuals attempting to enter the US illegally, regardless of legal status of the people attempting to enter (not all people who enter the US in a way that circumvents “normal” channels of entry are necessarily in the US illegally!). People got pissed. Trump tried to blame his policy on everyone else. Trump then signed a new order (that initially spelled “separation” wrong), that doesn’t actually fix anything. Now Trump doesn’t want to follow the Constitution.
