Trump is about to get his wish, lock children up longer

In the US it is currently against the law to imprison children who enter the US illegally. The 1997 law known as the the Flores Settlement Agreement (Flores) set national standards regarding the detention, release, and treatment of all children in immigration detention and underscores the principle of family unity.

It requires that:
Juveniles be released from custody without unnecessary delay, and in order of preference to the following: a parent, legal guardian, adult relative, individual specifically designated by the parent, a child welfare licensed program, or, alternatively when family reunification is not possible, an adult seeking custody deemed appropriate by the responsible government agency.Where they cannot be released because of significant public safety or flight risk concerns, juveniles must be held in the least restrictive setting appropriate to age and special needs, generally, in a nonsecure facility licensed by a child welfare entity and separated from unrelated adults…

Attention Canadian Border Services

Apparently Carl from the US State department (Passports Division) is planning a forthcoming trip to Canada. Please verify that he has a working brain and beating heart, we have enough heartless zombies here and we don’t need any new American ones.

Um, what

It all started out as a humorous post in 2014, about Stephen Harper's war room trying to get something on Justin Trudeau after he took over the leadership of the Liberal party.

An anonymous source has now come forward and claims that they have talked to a person who was present when the young Justin swam into the deep end of the pool and with all the arrogance of a wealthy, privately educated, son of a Prime Minister, grinned as he relieved himself in what could be considered Canada's pool.
For a Prime Minister and current President of the Group of 7 or so, who wants to create a proclamation about protecting our oceans at this years session, this incident from his past demonstrates the hypocrisy of Canada's Liberal government and it's so called progressive Prime Minister.
So much for that "It's 2018, Let's clean up our oceans" bullshit.

We.... WTF

We as in "we could have won".

We have not spent the last month attacking the Ontario Liberals on our blog posts.

We don't call Doug Ford our friend.

We don't have an ad for the Doug Ford OPC on our blogs.

Give me a break.

WAAH




To an old guy like me it's like having Taylor Swift as a bestie

My twitter account gained two new followers this month Jackson Browne and David Crosby. Now, I know that my grand total of forty followers doesn’t compare in quantity to Kinsella’s, as he reminded us this week, but my followers are a hell of a lot more progressive than his.
On the down side I probably won’t be able to enter the states anymore.
Meh

Dear Progressive Bloggers Admin people

Us millennial types like to peruse the Progressive Bloggers aggregator via our iPhones (thank you Steve may you rest in peace), and as nice as your new Wordpress theme is somewhat 2010ish, it doesn't work on an iPhone or I assume the cheaper glitzier Chinese knockoffs. Do you want to fix that?Thank you
