Staging Building the Wall Before Trump Builds His Wall

Arts Story  August 31, 2017, by Robert Faires
"...If we the people were going to accept such beyond-the-pale behavior, then what other moral standards that we'd held previously might we be willing to sacrifice down the line? Seeing "a fundamental attack on basic American values," as he told one interviewer, Schenkkan started writing, and wrote with the speed and intensity of a wildfire (hardly an account of the play's creation doesn't reference the "white-hot fury" in which it was penned). Within a week, Schenkkan had his play, Building the Wall, a compact two-hander set 1,000 days into the Trump administration..."

Trump Budget Wants Congress to Rewrite Federal Immigration Law
But that budget? DOA. (We hope.)
News Story  June 1, 2017, by Michael King
"...The proposed Trump administration federal budget – described variously as "dead on arrival" or "dead before arrival" (and that's by Republicans) – has been roundly denounced, as it should be, for cutting basic social safety net programs and undermining public schools, while spiking military spending. But the draft features other Trumpian surprises – for example, buried in an appendix is a provision that would rewrite federal immigration law to tighten the screws on alleged "sanctuary cities." Attorney General Jeff Sessions has grudgingly acknowledged that Immigration and Customs Enforcement "detainer requests" are exactly that, and not binding on local jurisdictions – so the budget asks Congress to rewrite the law to require local law enforcement to comply with any requests issued by ICE, and to enable the Department of Justice to sanction (through funding denials) any jurisdiction that fails to comply with such "requests" (thereby making a mockery of the term itself)..."

News Column  January 5, 2017, by Michael King
"...Yet as happened in this week's reversal of the Republican gutting of the Office of Congressional Ethics, broad public pressure and political embarrassment forced a retreat that even The Big Tweeter endorsed, describing the House move against the OCE as bad for the optics of his new administration.

Texas guv sends a "pretty please" to the president
DAILY News  January 25, 2018, by Mary Tuma
