    Except she's an actual rancher. In that her family owns a ranch, not that she actually works it.

    Didn't Texas successfully sue the Biden administration for trying to halt deportations already? If I remembering it correctly that's not really Bidens fault.

    This is absolute shit, if true. I need to know a little more about it because obviously detention camps don't just spring up overnight. I can only assume that the process for building this was started quite some time ago and only "opened" now upon completion. But still, it's absolute fucking bullshit. Since they already spent money on this shit, they should repurpose them to house people who are homeless currently so we at least get a functional use out of them (obviously, getting rid of all the security and other prison-like features).

    So there’s a couple important issues that get conflated. When unaccompanied minors come here, they need to be housed someplace until their family can be located or they can be fostered somewhere barring finding their family. That’s good, responsible government. Family separations are bad and shouldn’t happen unless the family is abusing the minor.

    I need an explanation on the cost though:

    The influx facilities also cost more: about $775 a day per child compared with $290 a day for permanent centers.

    An explanation of why we would spend more or why does what we spend on cost more money? Probably start with covid requirements for space if it is the latter and treating them better and providing more services costs more money.

    That tweet is extremely deceptive, that migrant facility is for unaccompanied minors and not for kids being ripped away from their families. The fact that these 2 things are being conflated helps republicans and proves yet again that the narrative of the media having a liberal bias is absolute bullshit.

    The fossil fuel industry is concerned that federal lands are off limits for exploration. Manchin’s opposition will have everything to do with her qualifications because he doesn’t like what she will do.

    I disagree with Manchin, but this one is much more about policy than the other. Manchin is going to protect the fossil fuel industry if he can.

    A few folks and I talked through the current deportation issues last week, and there are some very real problems with Biden’s handling of things that are found in Uhl’s tweet. I probably incorrectly assumed that everybody was as invested in that convo as I was, and applied all of that background here. I should’ve put a bit of an explainer there, but my sentiment remains.

    $775 per day seems high to me. Idk what all that entails though. Medical, psych, tracking down family, etc. When I first read it I was just thinking about bed and food.

    I thought I'd seen a lot of reporting in regards to the immigration stuff, that the previous admin(mainly Miller) levelled all of their ridiculous shit to the point where it was going to take months to get it undone?

    Please explain, but taking a quick look at the info that was posted it does feel like there are some incremental improvements over and above what the last admin did, and I am sure this is just a starting point. He hasn't even been in office a month and he is dealing with a major pandemic as our number one priority. I get walking and chewing gum, but you can't fix many years of neglect in a few weeks.

    Oh, OK. So far I am happy with the job he is doing overall. I am not going to go all purist on every promise or interpretation of those promises. He is moving the needle in the right direction and is getting more wins than losses.

    This isn't a purist angle, it's people's lives, people who are dying in camps because they're more at risk of contracting COVID. It doesn't mean we don't take small wins, it does mean I'm not going to be satisfied until there is major change to our immigration system with respect to undocumented people.

    Some of you need to accept that whoever is president should be constantly critiqued if you don't want them to get back to accepting the status quo.

    Some of you need to be more pragmatic about understanding how change works. I am not a believer that you can just fix things overnight. A policy that is in effect today may ease into the policy that you want, and that is my expectation. If it doesn't happen I will be the first to criticize. I just don't think a few weeks is enough of a window to start forming opinions unless you are looking for confirmation bias.

    I won’t argue that this administration, just like Obama’s administration, leave a lot to be desired when it pertains to immigration. I just think using the opening of that migration center frames the conversation incorrectly and takes away from some of the things that are really happening that need to be addressed.

    But when it’s all said and done, there is no way to fix the immigration system via executive order. There has to be real immigration reform in order to fix the problems and while Biden and all presidents deserve the heat they get, the main culprit are the people in congress.

    If people like us who are engaged aren't applying pressure over these issues things won't get fixed.

    There are things Biden could be doing with immigration that he's not and that's disappointing.

    That impacts the lives of human beings in substantial ways.

    All of these things are true.
