Three migrant children died in US custody, while others are being molested. I frankly don't by their excuse that administering the vaccines would be so difficult for them. Incidentally, reports of sexual abuse increased specifically while the family separation policy as in place.
 
But sure, I guess some random list copied from Imam Tawhidi is clearly a coherent counterargument, even though it has been continuously proven false.
 

Nunes is suing a parody of a cow because it said mean things about him. Nunes is not a legitimate example, and this is more about Nunes filing a frivolous lawsuit (Something that he himself has condemned in the past), and he's all but admitted to abusing the legal system to attack journalists.

So Devin didn't even bother to show up to the hearing to dismiss his case against Twitter. No ruling for another seven to ten days, though the judge left open the possibility that the case against Twitter would be dismissed from Virginia, which was largely irrelevant to Devin's grievances.

Meanwhile, the DOJ mistakenly included a blog post from a white supremacist site. While the DOJ condemned the post, they acknowledged that post was indeed supporting white supremacy, and as such should not have been included. However, it does follow Trump singling out Jews as "disloyal" if they vote for Democrats. Because, you know, singling out Jews as disloyal doesn't have any historical precedent related to genocide.

19 states have failed a lawsuit to prevent the Trump administration from holding migrant children in these concentration camps indefinitely. The states cite the government's aforementioned decision to refuse providing basic hygiene, adequate food, and clean water, which a discredited far-right troll had lied about.

Interesting analysis that specifically goes out of its way to prove that sanctuary cities keep communities safer, or at the very least, that attempting to blame criminal activity on the existence of sanctuary cities is inherently false.

That said, we know that the issue isn't actually about any alleged correlation between sanctuary cities and violent crimes. It's just about using sanctuary cities as a scapegoat to mask that Trump and his supporters just want to demonize immigrants in general.

"We have seen this playbook before: the administration exploits tragedies when they occur and attributes the causes of these tragedies to policies it objects to. To be clear, in sanctuary jurisdictions, all those charged with criminal conduct face prosecution; local policies limiting cooperation with immigration enforcement do not interfere with criminal justice processes."

A federal judge has once again blocked Trump from diverting funds for the border wall. This only affects one particular case, but it is nevertheless a positive result.

"Rothstein barred the administration from dipping into the nearly $90 million allocated for the project, but didn't halt the use of military construction funds for the wall altogether."

Both Senator Warren and the House Democrats are each working on introducing legislation to their respective chambers that will reduce border wall funding. Warren's bill in particular will emphasize redirecting the funds to help deal with the coronavirus.
