    Illegal or undocumented immigrants I think you left out. Many Democrats remember when there was no Democrat messaging about being against or thwarting immigration enforcement.

    Lloyd Blankfein, leaving Goldman:
    Lloyd Blankfein, one of Wall Street's most powerful players, is reportedly preparing to step down from his perch at Goldman Sachs as soon as the end of the year.

    Blankfein has led Goldman Sachs for the past dozen years, guiding the investment bank back to success after a near-death experience during the financial crisis.

    The 63-year-old will be leaving on his own terms, The Wall Street Journal reported. Blankfein will probably retire ahead of the bank's 150th anniversary in 2019, or early that year, the paper reported.
    ...
    Even though he supported Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election, Blankfein recently told CNN the economy is "higher" under Trump than if Clinton had won.

    These are the same people like Chuck Schumer who thinks the Palestinians deserve whats happening to them, because of reasons.
    I get that having a D in power is much better overall. But we need to start looking at these D's a lot closer.

    "At AIPAC, Democrats try to outdo Trump in their devotion to Israel's oppression of Palestinians."

    My question is whether or not this could spark increased interest in “cleaning up” or reforming the industry itself.

    I actually credit Schumer for those remarks, which I just learned of. Nice counter to the Luis Farrakhan fans on the left (Keith Ellison being one of course).


    https://www.adl.org/news/op-ed/louis-farrakhan-again
    And yet Farrakhan is not entirely a fringe figure. He is a leader of a religious movement who draws thousands of attendees to his speeches and fills auditoriums for his sermonizing. His popularity gives him the dubious distinction of being, quite possibly, the most popular anti-Semite in America today.
    ...

    For instance, U.S. Rep. Danny Davis, D-Illinois, recently praised Farrakhan as “an outstanding human being.” When ADL called him out for this remark, Davis insisted he had been misquoted and asked us to share recent examples of Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic rhetoric. He assured us he rejects anti-Semitism in all forms, but Congressman Davis still hasn’t publicly repudiated the NOI leader.

    Or consider that in the audience at last weekend’s conference was Tamika Mallory, one of the leaders of the Women’s March, who got a special shout-out from Farrakhan and who regularly posts laudatory pictures of him on her Instagram account — as does Carmen Perez, another leader of the March. Linda Sarsour, another March organizer, spoke and participated at a Nation of Islam event in 2015. Her most notable response to his incendiary remarks this year was a glowing post on Perez’s Facebook page to praise Farrakhan’s youthful demeanor.

    Two things that helped to shift this are the Dreamers, who are here through no fault of thier own and often know only this country. In some cases they don't even speak the language of where ICE wants to deport them to.

    And second is the overly heavy hand ICE is using to chase people down. Picking up witnesses outside of the courthouse, picking up legal resident aliens over 20 year old crimes (which are often minor to begin with) and you have a recipe for a lot of resentment.

    Add in the fact that being undocumented is a violation rather than a crime (the same category as a parking ticket) coupled with the complete lack of due process ICE typically allows and I can understand where the Dems are coming from.

    Illegal immigration has always been a trap door for Democrats. It’s why Republicans push it so hard

    Oh no! It's Meth Man again. It was posted a few pages back. But you're right...and it proves the existence of the deplorables. They're the kind that sucker punched a black guy at one of Trump's rallies.

    And I left it out because that wasn't what I found disgusting about her stance. Illegal immigrants made an informed decision. Their children did not, nor did they have agency over their lives at the point that decision was made.

    So, I wasn't born in America. I am a citizen. But I was not born here. I do not have any experience living in the country I was born in, nor do I speak the language. I haven't been back, either. If I'd been brought here and protected by DACA, and suddenly got sent back, I'd be completely lost.

    I think the stance that DACA is an awful policy and Dreamers need to go back where they "came from" lacks basic human empathy, and is a disgusting attitude.

    That's why I brought it up. I'm not going to get mad if someone thinks illegal immigrants should be deported. That's not an outlandish nor entirely new idea. The DACA situation is new, and it's happening because of your dudes.
