...are insane. Congratulations if you're the Whitest of People, as you're probably safe from border control harassment - for now. Anyone else, regardless of the ethnicity(ies) or race(s) they consider or actually know themselves to be, is at risk of deportation.

There's no way to break out figures on how many people this will throw into utter panic or despair, but it's safe to say tens of millions have become human bull's eyes, at serious risk of getting stopped, asked for papers, but without them, getting arrested, then without due process, dumped over the border into Mexico - even if they're not from Mexico - to be formally deported later on.

100 miles from the US border is "the border" for deportation purposes, so on top of how greatly the pool of deportables has been expanded - you simply have to not look exactly white or be slightly darker and not be able to produce papers on the spot to get arrested and sent off to Mexico - because of the 100 mile delineation, entire states around the country are border control units now.

If you thought it was "just Mexicans" or "just" the actual border being monitored, splash some cold water on your face and wake up. This is Nazi Germany-style "show us papers or GTFO" with the main difference being that Jews, since they're of mostly Northern European origin, are harder to tease apart from "whites" than Hispanic-looking people are, which in this country will save the Whitest of People from getting stopped or asked for papers - for now. But we all know where this is going; hunting Mexicans is just this regime's little warm-up act, and I mean really little, so don't say I didn't warn you.

Because who knows; I might not be around by then to even remind you that I did.

Any plans to hinder the worst parts of this or any other order through the courts might soon be made moot by this Florida representative's bill to nullify our state and federal judiciaries. The bill states only a 60% super-majority is needed to override anything the courts decide, so don't look to our judicial branch for help, as it might soon be unable to function - and all this with Cheetolini's express blessing.

Can't say we should've seen it coming - but yeah, we should have seen it coming. We all knew the dictator when we saw him, even waaaaaay back when he announced his run for office by declaring, among other things, that Mexicans are rapists; it was just a matter of extrapolating downward from there.

Lastly, after learning Cambridge Analytica won the election for El Orango more handily than Russian interference did, I forgive all but the most hateful of his supporters in the same spirit as someone who once declared, "Forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do". Read these words carefully: I think they were brainwashed, I think they were brainwashed, I think they were brainwashed - because after reading that, there's nothing else I can think.
