Me too! I juuuust upgraded my CPU, and I decided to hold off on buying a new GPU for now until new cards are unveiled in the spring. And now that decision looks totally justified, since I mainly wanted the upgrade to play Cyperbunk!
Let’s face the facts; deportation in most cases is bullshit, and it’s especially bullshit when the person has a green card already. The punishment for fraud shouldn’t be banishment. Who gives a shit that this guy wasn’t yet a citizen either? He’s an American, regardless of whether or not there’s a piece of paper… Read more
You could 100% beat the shit out of Stephen Miller and he’d just use it as justification later down the line for why he was a shitbag, in an effort to make people like him.
As an immigration person, I’ve even been told I’m downplaying something awful at the border when I point out that, no, a private prison company is NOT being paid $770/day to lock kids in cages (CBP is the one running the cages, not private prisons, and the costs is definitely way lower, that cost was specific to the… Read more
Oh don’t worry! I think we both twigged onto the same theme.
Ugh. I was a fat boy, so I got my fair share of bullying too, AND I had skin issues, and yes, it just fucks you up so badly. And then sometimes I’d join in making fun of the one kid in class everyone made fun of because there’s always someone lower on the totem pole and I still feel just awful for the times I did… Read more

Sharing photos of a CBP toilet from 2015, Aaron Reichlin-Melnick wrote, “There was no trash… Read more
Yeah Greenwald is definitely not a lefty, or if he is, he’s of the “We must preserve the welfare state by rejecting the great unwashed brown masses” kind of lefty, of which there are sadly quite a lot. I hadn’t seen that last paragraph before but it’s complete shit. Study after study after study show that immigrants… Read more
Tyler Q. Houlton’s a snake. He’s done nothing but work in Republican press shops his entire career, first for Tom Tancredo and then later for the GOP, then moved to DHS where he kept up his partisan attacks on Dems despite working for us, the taxpayers. Fuck him and fuck every one of the agency spokespeople willing to… Read more
Thanks for covering this. This awfulness is weirdly garden-variety for ICE, and shows what the agency is like without handcuffs on it. Lots of stories like this from pre-2012 Obama administration, before the “Deporter-in-Chief” moniker stuck and he realized he’d have to ease up or he’d lose large portions of the left. Read more
