Donald Trump’s plan to deport undocumented people as well as their U.S.-born children is so timeless and classic, it harkens back to better time: The Great Depression, when 500,000 to 1 million Mexicans and Mexican-Americans were kicked out of the country. How adorable!
As Russell Contreras writes, “During the Great Depression, counties and cities in the American Southwest and Midwest forced Mexican immigrants and their families to leave the U.S. over concerns they were taking jobs away from whites, despite their legal right to stay. The result: Around 500,000 to 1 million Mexican immigrants and Mexican Americans were pushed out of the country during the 1930s repatriation, as the removal is sometimes called.”
Trump’s deportation plans may be unconstitutional, but they are very family-friendly. In fact, they are all about the family unit, as Trump explained to Chuck Todd earlier this month: “We’re going to keep the families together, but they have to go.”
This isn’t the first time Donald Trump has taken a strong stand on family values. Back in 2006, The Donald appeared on the ABC talk show The View, and had this to say about his daughter: “If Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.” Check out the footage of Donald showering his daughter with his praise and comedian Julie Goldman’s take on it in the video below.

Comedian Chelsey Handler defended former Vice President Joe Biden on Friday, during an appearance on HBO's "Real Time" with Bill Maher.

Whether a sitting president can be indicted should be reexamined: former federal prosecutor
Former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner has reached a point that he thinks the policy of not indicting a sitting president should be readjusted for modern times.
In a PoliticsNation panel discussion, focused on Rep. Jerry Nadler's (D-NY) suggestion that he would be requesting documents from at least 60 people connected to President Donald Trump as part of broadening the investigation into possible crimes committed while running for office or while president.
"He has got legal exposure on so many fronts," said Kirschner. "Whether it is his fake charitable organization, his continuing criminal enterprise of the Trump Organization, whether it is an inauguration run amok, it looks like, taking illegal, foreign donations and doling out or promising goodness knows what to those people who donated. And it's his presidency."
‘Only a wimp does this’: Ex-Pentagon chief of staff rips Trump’s ‘weak’ and cowardly dismissal of Tillerson
A former top official at the Department of Defense and Central Intelligence Agency explained how President Donald Trump displayed weakness to the world by the manner in which former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was fired.
"The more waves the president makes, the more we wonder if at least in part he's hoping to take back the news cycle from, for example, his sex scandal involving porn star Stormy Daniels," MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace noted. "I don't know what you call it when the lawyer for the porn star sounds more reasonable than the President of the United States."
