Trump may not know that international conventions govern the seeking of asylum. He will not care, of course. He is already in violation.

I'm still concerned that despite it being brought up the first time he started tweeting this shit, that he's talking about the phucking Constitution.

Trump couldn’t read past the preamble. How do you expect him to have read all the way to the fifth amendment?

Neither Trump nor his administration believe that immigrants have due process rights or any other rights.

On the Whitehouse.gov site https://www.whitehouse.gov/about-the-wh ... stitution/
they have changed the meaning of the 2nd, 4th, and 5th amendments by adding the word "citizen" to the descriptions:
The Second Amendment gives citizens the right to bear arms.
...
The Fourth Amendment protects citizens from unreasonable search and seizure. The government may not conduct any searches without a warrant, and such warrants must be issued by a judge and based on probable cause.
...
The Fifth Amendment provides that citizens not be subject to criminal prosecution and punishment without due process. Citizens may not be tried on the same set of facts twice, and are protected from self-incrimination (the right to remain silent). The amendment also establishes the power of eminent domain, ensuring that private property is not seized for public use without just compensation.
In the Constitution:
Article [II] (Amendment 2 - Bearing Arms)
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
...
Article [IV] (Amendment 4 - Search and Seizure)
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
...
Article [V] (Amendment 5 - Rights of Persons)
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

A case for ACLU in the name of other residents and visitors of the US?

How about telling tourists that they are no longer covered by the US Constitution according to this mal-administration?

Leaked photo shows mass trial with 37 accused unauthorized immigrants — shackled hand and foot — being processed all at once

A leaked photo from a Texas courthouse shows 37 people accused of illegally entering the US being processed all at once.
In these kinds of trials, defendants are often expected to answer questions in unison to save time.
It's illegal to take photos in federal court, but somebody broke the rules to get the image out.
The image has been circulating online in the legal community and was published recently by The Intercept.
Though they might be unfamiliar to many, trials like this have been going on in border courts for more than a decade.
The Trump's administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy is making such scenes more common.

A leaked photograph shows 37 defendants in orange prison jumpsuits shackled at the hands and feet to be processed en masse as part of the ongoing US clampdown on illegal immigration.

The image, leaked to the media, gives an unfamiliar glimpse into "Operation Streamline," a prosecution system in which up to 70 defendants in immigration cases can be charged and sentenced at once.

The photo, taken in the ceremonial courtroom at the Lucius D. Bunton Federal Courthouse in Pecos, Texas, was first sent to Debbie Nathan, a journalist in Texas covering the US-Mexico border, and published in The Intercept last week.

Taking and broadcasting photos in courtrooms is illegal under US law. The image has nonetheless been circulating among attorneys and legal workers in Texas since April, Nathan told Business Insider. <SNIP>

This is illegal in every possible way. The only thing Trump and his #faketriot army have zero tolerance for is freedom and the Constitution.

ICE is not "liberating communities" from MS-13.

The last time Trump made this claim, NYT reached out to the W.H. and ICE to find out which towns Trump was referring to. Neither the W.H. nor ICE responded. https://nyti.ms/2ze1jWP

A CNN reporter said yesterday that Trump maintains a sort of open door policy: members of Congress can speak with him on the phone. I say the catch in that is that he rarely listens and almost never changes his mind. He has the certainty of the poorly educated, uninformed, and prejudiced.

Twitter is getting rid of fake accounts at a record pace. Will that include the Failing New York Times and propaganda machine for Amazon, the Washington Post, who constantly quote anonymous sources that, in my opinion, don’t exist - They will both be out of business in 7 years!

Remember that less than two months ago, Trump falsely accused the New York Times of making up a source. It was an official who briefed reporters.
