The Criminalization Of Immigrants From Clinton To Trump

Cross-posted with TomDispatch.com As with America’s wars, so with the walling in of America, there’s a distinct history for President Trump to build on when it comes to the criminalization and deportation of large numbers of immigrants ― and, as TomDispatch regular Aviva Chomsky, author of Undocumented: How Immigration Became Illegal, writes today, it’s a history that is remarkably, dismally bipartisan. In a piece that runs against the grain of the moment but with the grain of history, she suggests that, despite the media panic over Trump’s deportation policies (and threats) as something new and terrifying that we’ve never seen before, the sorry history of recent presidencies ― Bill Clinton’s and Barack Obama’s in particular ― suggests otherwise. In this sharp, thoughtful, and original piece, Chomsky explores just what those two Democratic presidents built, in terms of deportation policies, that will serve Donald Trump well over the next four years. Don’t miss this one! Love, Tom From TomDispatch this morning: What Trump inherited, deportation in context ― Aviva Chomsky, “Making Sense of the Deportation Debate, How Bill Clinton and Barack Obama Laid the Groundwork for Trump’s Immigration Policies”. TomDispatch regular Aviva Chomsky begins her latest piece this way: “Ever since he rode a Trump Tower escalator into the presidential race in June 2015 and swore to build his ‘great wall’ and stop Mexican ‘rapists’ from entering the country, undocumented immigrants have been the focus of Donald Trump’s ire. Now that he’s in the Oval Office, the news has been grim. A drumbeat of frightening headlines and panicked social media posts have highlighted his incendiary language, his plans and executive orders when it comes to immigrants, and the early acts of the Border Patrol and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents when it comes to round-ups and deportations. The temperature has soared on the deportation debate, so if you think we’re in a completely unprecedented moment when it comes to immigration and immigrants, you’re in good company. “Trump has repeatedly claimed that immigrants, especially undocumented ones, are flooding the United States, causing crime waves, and depleting social service budgets. Never mind that the number of such immigrants has been in steady decline since 2008, that immigrant crime rates are lower than citizen crime rates, that the undocumented have no access to most social welfare programs, and that crime figures, too, have generally been on the decline in recent years. “The media has played its own role in fanning the flames. Since Donald Trump entered the Oval Office, news reports have proliferated about rising raids, arrests, detentions, and deportations. These suggest that something new, terrifying, and distinctly Trumpian ― something we’ve simply never seen before ― is underway, including mass sweeps to deport individuals who would have been protected under the previous administration.” In the rest of her piece, Chomsky explores out just how two previous Democratic presidents laid the groundwork for Donald Trump’s coming deportation policies. It’s a grim, sad story, but a must-read! -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Lions 2017 squad announcement: Warburton captain, no place for Hartley – live!

No place for Dylan Hartley or Joe Launchbury in Lions squadSam Warburton named as captain for second time Gatland can give Lions nous and substance Email [email protected] | Tweet @bglendenning 3.54pm BST For one last time, here’s who made the cut. Warren Gatland’s selection policy has proved predictably controversial, with many feeling that several in-form Scottish players have been left out in favour of ageing Welshmen who have been picked on reputation rather than Autumn international or Six Nations form. Shades of Clive Woodward in 2005 there, methinks and look at the drubbings that lot took from the All Blacks. No doubt some players will succumb to injury between now and June, so there will be inevitably be new additions to the squad as various unfortunate players are forced to pull out. 3.48pm BST OK, folks - we’re going to wind down this blog now, but please feel free to continues discussing Warren Gatlland’s selections in our comments section. Thanks you all for your contributions and stay tuned for incoming analysis and comment from our rugby writers Rob Kitson, Paul Rees, Gerard Meagher and Andy Bull. Continue reading...

Simon Zebo puts Munster on alert over Saracens dangerman Chris Ashton

• Saracens wing singled out as main threat in Champions Cup semi-final• Zebo: ‘He is a world-class finisher. Everybody will have to be wary of that’Simon Zebo has warned his Munster side of the threat posed by the Saracens wing Chris Ashton, who will seek to become the highest try-scorer in Europe in the Champions Cup semi-final in Dublin on Saturday.Ashton, who has scored 13 tries in his 12 appearances since returning from suspension in late December, pulled level with Vincent Clerc on 36 European tries with a double against Glasgow in the previous round. He also came off the bench on Sunday to score Saracens’ first try in the victory against Northampton and ensure his side will arrive at the Aviva Stadium after four successive wins since the return of their England contingent.

A hole in home insurance cover that could leave millions out of pocket

If your pipe bursts and causes damage to a neighbour’s house, your policy might not pay out if you have bought home rather than contents coverHow would you feel if you received a scary letter from an insurance company accusing you of “negligence” and saying you were legally responsible for paying for repairs to your neighbour’s house?That’s what happened to 82-year-old Sabata Picone after water leaked from her property into the house next door. The letter she received said that “you have failed in your common law duty” to prevent damage to someone else’s property and wanted to know how she intended to pay the bill, which could potentially run into hundreds or even thousands of pounds.

Aviva может продать подразделение Friends Provident International

По сведениям из осведомленного источника, британский страховщик Aviva планирует продать подразделение Friends Provident International, специализирующееся на обслуживании состоятельных клиентов в Азии и на Ближнем Востоке, за $750 млн. Стоит отметить, что Aviva приобрела Friends Provident International в апреле 2015 г. в рамках сделки по покупке Friends Life Group. В комментариях к финансовой отчетности за год, Aviva отметила, что подразделение выходит за рамки его стратегии. Также стоит учитывать тот момент, что операционная прибыль Aviva в Азии снизилась в 2016 г. на 4% г/г, в то время как в среднем по миру показатель увеличился на 12% г/г. Как сообщает источник, Aviva уже получила несколько предварительных предложений, хотя официальных заявок еще не поступало, в частности, интерес проявили китайские компании Fosun Group и HNA Group, который отказались комментировать данную информацию.

Aviva намерена продать подразделение, обслуживающее богатых клиентов из Азии

Британская страховая компания Aviva PLC изучает варианты продажи своего подразделения Friends Provident International, которое специализируется на обслуживании состоятельных клиентов в Азии и на Ближнем Востоке. Об этом со ссылкой на собственные источники сообщает The Wall Street Journal, уточняя, что сделка может принести родительской компании до $750 млн.Aviva готова продать Friends Provident менее чем через пару лет после его выкупа в составе Friends Life Group. То поглощение обошлось Aviva в £5,6 млрд и позволило компании стать крупнейшей страховой организацией Великобритании. Однако, согласно последней финансовой отчетности, Friends Provident перестало приносить должный уровень прибыли: по итогам прошлого года валовая прибыль от основной деятельности Aviva в Азии сократилась на 4%, в то время как глобальный показатель вырос на 12%.

Is Trumpcare already here?

No matter what happens to the Republicans’ troubled health bill in Congress, Trumpcare is here to stay.The Trump administration has already begun to transform the health insurance market, wielding executive power to rewrite coverage rules, slash Obamacare’s marketing budget and signal an all-out assault on his predecessor’s health care law. And Republicans have high expectations the administration will take additional measures to unwind Obamacare, such as targeting its contraception coverage requirement at the center of two recent religious liberty cases at the Supreme Court.The new administration began reshaping Obamacare the very day President Donald Trump took office, issuing a symbolic executive order that made clear he was intent on weakening the Affordable Care Act and its individual mandate just hours after taking office.And ever since, his administration has been taking steps that Democrats and advocates of the law say have begun to undermine and transform the law.HHS Secretary Tom Price has made it crystal clear that his department will keep using its regulatory powers to further scale back what he regards as a failed and intrusive legislation. “We’re taking action to improve choices for patients, stabilize the individual and small-group insurance markets, and expand access to more affordable coverage,” Price said in a statement this week, linking to a new HHS memo touting the regulatory steps already underway.One of the earliest and most significant moves came in late January before Price was even confirmed. The administration clawed back millions of dollars in pre-paid TV advertisements for HealthCare.gov, in the crucial final days of the 2017 sign-up period. HHS at the time said it wanted to cut excessive spending.But those final days of open enrollment are a critical time for outreach, particularly for younger and healthier people who sign up right before the deadline. Enrollment dipped this year for the first time since the coverage expansion began in 2014. Just 12.2 million people signed up, well below the White House's projection of 13.8 million.“Sabotage pure and simple," summed up Leslie Dach, the campaign director for the pro-Obamacare group Protect Our Care. He was a top HHS official between 2014 and 2016.Enrollment could be dampened even more if the administration decides to do little or no advertising next year.“If the [Trump] administration decides not to run TV ads in the future, this would be concerning," said University of Minnesota professor Sarah Gollust, who has studied TV ads and enrollment. "Particularly so if state governments follow their lead in also cutting their budgets for marketing and outreach — and if enrollment advocates and non-profits cannot pick up the slack."But Enroll America, which led sign-up efforts across the country, is shutting down a year ahead of schedule, and its leader Anne Filipic says that Trump's actions have complicated her group's work. The group held thousands of enrollment events over the last three years, and there’s no obvious group to step up and fill the void."Already, reckless rhetoric and unserious proposals are sowing confusion and uncertainty, making it harder for assisters to do their jobs and for eligible consumers to get the coverage they deserve,” Filipic warned last week.Trump’s own musings about simply letting Obamacare “fail” — a concept he first openly raised in January — have sent shock waves through the health care industry. Humana has pulled out of the ACA’s exchanges for next year, and other companies warn that the uncertainty may drive them away — though Trump also has met with insurance executives about transitioning to a post-Obamacare system.“There are simply too many unknowns with the marketplace program to commit to our participation beyond 2017," Mario Molina, CEO of Molina Healthcare — one of the most successful insurers on the ACA exchanges — said on an investor conference call in February and reiterated to POLITICO last week.Republicans blame insurers' frustrations on what they see as the law's fundamental problems, like too many regulations. "Let’s not forget, Obamacare is collapsing," House Speaker Paul Ryan said. "If we did nothing the law would collapse and leave everybody without affordable health care."But a number of health policy experts who support the law see growing evidence — based on reports from independent actuaries and organizations like Standard and Poor’s — that premium prices were moderating and last year’s big spikes in the Obamacare health plans won’t be repeated. "My conclusion from the data we have is that the marketplace was poised for greater success," said Aviva Aron-Dine, who served as senior counselor to the HHS secretary until January 2017, before moving to the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities.The Trump administration also proposed new rules last month that would tighten up the health law’s special enrollment periods and change certain plans' “actuarial value” — essentially, the share of total costs that the insurer pays — which can push more costs onto patients. The White House maintains that those are necessary steps to shore up a mess that they inherited, by limiting who's signing up for coverage and allowing insurers to sell cheaper plans. Insurers had been pushing for those changes in order to stay in the market.Some former Obama officials say that the changes, particularly extra verification requirements for people who sign up outside the usual enrollment season, may backfire and actually drive health plan customers away.It's "quite possible that the new verification procedures [for special enrollment] could worsen, rather than improve, the individual market risk pool," said Brookings economist Matt Fiedler, another former White House official under Obama. Aron-Dine noted that the Obama administration in December 2016 had proposed a limited test of changing the special-enrollment policy, rather than rolling it out nationally. “Going full-speed ahead is counterproductive," she cautioned.In addition, she said that HHS’s decision to reduce that share of costs insurers pay — that actuarial value — in benchmark plans will mean that the value of tax credits will fall, making insurance more expensive for some. Health plans will be able to design options with higher deductibles and out-of-pocket costs.Meanwhile, the ACA's Medicaid expansion will have a more conservative tinge. HHS leaders have officially signaled to states that they’re open to adding work requirements in the program — something that’s also been added to the repeal bill. That had been a red line for the Obama administration, and researchers say that provision and other possible changes that could swiftly shrink the program that covered an additional 11 million people under Obamacare.There’s more than a simple label at stake: “Obamacare” was a powerful totem for Republican voters, who saw the law as a proxy for everything they disliked about health care and government. And having learned that lesson, Democrats are now trying to hang all of health care’s problems around the new president as swiftly as possible."The experience of Obama and the ACA suggests many people attribute the most unpopular aspects of the health care system to the politician who is most closely associated with it," said Brendan Nyhan, a Dartmouth University professor who's studied perceptions of the health law. "It's hard to know how much that will apply to Trump, especially if he can't pass a bill," he caveated. Not everyone agrees that the ACA's changes should rest with the White House — especially Republicans. "I don't think that the Trump administration owns health care yet," said Tevi Troy, who served as a top HHS official during President George W. Bush’s administration. But he concedes that Republicans "will have more ownership of health care” in the next election. "Blaming the other guy has a continually diminishing half-life, as President Obama learned," he said.

England are ready to take giant step into history books, says Dylan Hartley

The team are in confident mood as they chase the grand slam and a record 19th successive Test victory when they meet Ireland in DublinIf England could choose the perfect day to be in Ireland pursuing a grand slam this would not be it. St Patrick’s weekend is in full exuberant swing and there are enough American tourists in Dublin to invite comparisons with Chicago, where Ireland ended New Zealand’s 18-Test winning streak in November. With England also now seeking a 19th straight victory, the omens are not wholly favourable.The Ireland captain, Rory Best, certainly did not sound like a man throwing in the towel as he sat in the bowels of the Aviva Stadium contemplating the final act of a compelling tournament. Instead, the Ulsterman politely suggested the away team should be feeling the more anxious: “We’re well aware what England are going for but it’s St Paddy’s weekend and we’re at home. We’ll beat England because we’re pulling on a green jersey and we expect a better performance than we have delivered so far.” Continue reading...

Conor Murray injury means Ireland must adjust for finale with England

Kieran Marmion, who replaces Conor Murray at scrum-half, was praised by Johnny Sexton but the loss of his partner puts extra pressure on the fly-half in the Six Nations’ climaxIt is safe to say the team Eddie Jones had been preparing England to play against is not the team that will run out at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday. And you suspect he will be able to cope with the late change in runners and riders. Both Rob Kearney and Conor Murray had been expected to be fit, and are not; and the dropped Devin Toner could have been added to the list of sporting favourites who have failed to deliver elsewhere this week.In Kearney’s case it is a fresh injury – a knee problem that cropped up on Tuesday and requires consulting a specialist. With Murray he was, seemingly, motoring along well enough after the shoulder stinger that forced him off in Cardiff until contact intervened in training and his world clouded over. As for Toner, it is a straightforward demotion. Continue reading...
