Trump's 'Shithole' Remark Comes Back To Haunt Him In New Immigration Lawsuit

Source: Talking Points Memo




By Alice Ollstein | March 12, 2018 3:29 pm

A group of immigrants whose Temporary Protected Status was revoked by President Trump, and their U.S. citizen children, will file a class action lawsuit against the Trump administration on Monday afternoon at the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

Lawyers on the case tell TPM that the immigrant parents, many of whom have lived in the U.S. for decades, are arguing that the abrupt cancelation of their status was arbitrary and violates their right to due process. They are also arguing, citing President Trump’s infamous “shithole” comment, that the administration’s decision was unconstitutionally based on racial animus.

Over the past several decades, the U.S. has granted Temporary Protected Status to hundreds of thousands of people from an array of countries that have been in crisis—whether from war, natural disaster, or severe economic strife. Since taking office, Trump has terminated those protections for immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan, putting thousands of long-time residents at risk of deportation.

The American Civil Liberties Union and the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON) are planning to sue the Department of Homeland Security on behalf of former TPS-holders now at risk of deportation and their U.S. citizen children.

3. SUPPORT THE ACLU and any other organization fighting this madness.

Our only hope right now are the courts, and that's being whittled away. We're in big danger now.

4. Next time Cheeto opens his mouth, turn off the microphones

That's the least they can do. His mouth has done more damage to this country than the last 44 presidents put together.

8. Good!

I hope all kinds of necessary and "legitimate" lawsuits are filed and make that Injustice Department grind to a halt.
