Trump Supporter at Rally Says Shooting Immigrants Would Solve Border Crisis: 'Just Start Shooting'


Trump Supporter at Rally Says Shooting Immigrants Would Solve Border Crisis: ‘Just Start Shooting’

While at one of President Donald Trump’s campaign rallies, a reporter for The Young Turks interviewed a Trump supporter who advocated for shooting Hispanic immigrants to stop them from crossing the border.

Rebel HQ correspondent Emma Vigeland prefaced the segment by playing a clip from Fox News host Tucker Carlson in which he decried the demographic changes brought on by both legal and illegal immigration. Vigeland then went out in a crowd of Trump supporters at the Mesa, Arizona rally and asked for their thoughts on Carlson’s commentary.

“What would solve the whole thing on the border if they would just start shooting. Only shoot a couple, and they would go home,” one Trump supporter said while sporting a Make America Great Again hat. When asked if he was advocating a “deterrent,” he replied: “If they would shoot.”

“If they just shot at them a few times, they would go back,” he added.

One Trump rally-goer said he would be fine with demographic changes if they were caused by legal immigration. Another called Carlson’s commentary “edgy,” and intended to “rile up a crowd.”

One woman accused Hispanic immigrants of trying to turn America into Mexico, which she is “opposed” to.

Another woman concocted a conspiracy theory about the so-called “caravan” of South and Central American immigrants making its way up toward America.

“4,000 Latinos coming less than a month before the midterm elections… It took some planning and someone’s behind it,” she concluded.

Meghan McCain fumes as Sunny Hostin unloads on right-wing fearmongering about brown and black people

The View’s Meghan McCain fumes as Sunny Hostin unloads on right-wing fearmongering about brown and black people..yeah, her "funeral hero status" honeymoon is officially over, kids..she's still a dick...

In a conversation Monday about the migrant caravan heading to the United States from Central America, The View’s Meghan McCain accused co-host Sunny Hostin of calling her a liar, after claiming that “the left” wants ‘open borders and no consequences’ for undocumented immigrants.

“When you see these images, this is a conservative fever dream and a gift to the mid-term elections because this is exactly what conservatives think people on the left want to have happen into this country,” McCain said. “What a lot of people on the left are saying, no one on this table, is that you want open borders and no consequences.”


“I wish that then the people on the right would tell the truth about what’s really happening in immigration,” Hostin began, when a clearly irritated McCain cut her off.

“Did you just accuse me of not telling the truth?” she interjected. “I’m on the right.”

Joy Behar tried to defuse the situation, but McCain was having none of it, saying she was “more extreme on this issue than people realize”, and then launched into an attack on so-called sanctuary cities.

Hostin took the opportunity to give her colleague a lesson in the demographics of the undocumented, pointing out that 41% are from Asia, while many others come from Canada and Sweden.

“They aren’t on that caravan, I wish people on the right pointed that out,” Hostin said, as McCain tried to drown her out by screaming her objections. “It’s always about brown and black people and that’s not the truth.”

I can’t begin to express the rage I feel toward an administration that is trying to redefine me out of existence. Just another gift for his small minded base, terrified of the diversity that has always made America exceptional!

Kavanaugh once lobbied for judge now handling ethics complaints against HIM..

Kavanaugh once lobbied for judge now handling ethics complaints against him

Revelation raises concerns about politicization of the supreme court and whether Trump nominee will face disciplinary action

Stephanie Kirchgaessner in Washington

Supreme court justice Brett Kavanaugh once lobbied in support of a controversial judge who is now tasked with reviewing more than a dozen ethics complaints filed against him during his own confirmation process.

Emails sent to the Senate judiciary committee and obtained by the Guardian show that beginning in 2001, Kavanaugh was involved in a high-stakes campaign to ensure that Timothy Tymkovich, another staunch conservative and a former Colorado solicitor general, would secure a lifetime appointment as a federal judge.

Kavanaugh, who was confirmed to the supreme court this month, worked on the judicial campaign in his role as a senior staff member for President George W Bush. Tymkovich was confirmed in 2003, after a long delay in the Senate. He is now chief judge on the 10th circuit court of appeals, in Colorado.

The revelation could create new concerns about the politicization of the supreme court and cast doubt on whether Kavanaugh will face any formal disciplinary action over his fiery and emotional testimony before the Senate judiciary committee earlier this month.

Critics, including hundreds of law professors, legal experts and senators, have said that Kavanaugh’s performance, in which he lashed out at Democrats over allegations he committed sexual assault, lacked judicial temperament. Kavanaugh fiercely denied the sexual assault allegations.

The chief justice of the supreme court, John Roberts, asked Tymkovich to examine more than a dozen judicial ethics complaints filed against Kavanaugh while he was technically still a circuit court judge. The complaints were not sent to Tymkovich until after Kavanaugh was confirmed to sit on the supreme court, where judges are in effect immune to disciplinary action by lower-court justices and are meant to police their own actions.

The complaints are not public but according to the Washington Post they allege Kavanaugh lied under oath and that his behaviour before the Senate was ill-suited for a judge.

Some legal experts have questioned whether it was appropriate for Roberts to wait until after Kavanaugh was confirmed to send the ethics complaints for review. But there has been little scrutiny of the man Roberts chose to conduct the review and his past relationship with Kavanaugh.

According to activists and legislative aides who were involved in the Tymkovich nomination battle, the judge was one of several controversial nominations to the federal court when he was chosen by Bush in 2001.


Resistance against the nomination was rooted in Tymkovich’s views on gay rights, recalled Kristine Lucius, who was then working for Democratic Vermont senator Patrick Leahy and is now executive vice-president for policy at the Leadership Conference, a civil rights group.

“John Roberts and Kavanaugh and Tymkovich are all in the same professional circle,” she said. “They are all tied to the Bush administration and these are all men who certainly knew each other and now are in very powerful positions on the bench.”

They also share a conservative judicial ideology.

Kavanaugh’s role in helping Tymkovich navigate difficult political terrain might not be common knowledge, but he admitted it in sworn public testimony in 2004.

Kavanaugh was questioned by senators following his own elevation to the DC circuit court of appeals. In response to questions from Dick Durbin, the Democratic senator from Illinois, Kavanaugh said he “participated in the meetings of a judicial selection committee that was responsible for making recommendations to the president”.

Tymkovich was among those discussed, according to Kavanaugh’s testimony.

Emails obtained by the Guardian, which were sent to the judicial committee during Kavanaugh’s confirmation process, show the Tymkovich nomination was one of several he was watching closely and that Kavanaugh helped plan a lobbying effort in newspapers in support of Tymkovich.

Lucius said that instead of going out of his way to choose a judge who did not have any ties to Kavanaugh, such as one nominated by Bill Clinton or Barack Obama, Roberts had added to the perception that the nine supreme court justices are above the law.

Any other chief judge in any other circuit would have demonstrated more impartiality and less conflict
Leslie Proll

That perception was ingrained in her, she said, in 2004, when Vice-President Dick Cheney was revealed to have gone duck hunting in Louisiana with supreme court justice Antonin Scalia. Scalia later declined to recuse himself from a case involving Cheney.

“When I think of judicial ethics, I think of that moment with Scalia as an ‘emperors have no clothes’ moment, and the realization that there were no ethics rules that apply to those judges,” Lucius said.

Tymkovich has himself been named in the press as a contender for a supreme court nomination, raising more questions about whether he would take any action against Kavanaugh, a sitting member of the court nominated by Donald Trump.

Leslie Proll, a civil rights lawyer who worked on judicial appointments when Tymkovich’s nomination was pending and now advises the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People on judicial nominations, said Roberts’ efforts would not inspire public confidence in the judicial process.

“This is the wrong judge at the wrong time,” she said. “Any other chief judge in any other circuit would have demonstrated more impartiality and less conflict. Appearance of bias is important in the law and this fails the test.”

An attempt to ask Tymkovich if he had a conflict of interest in the case was unsuccessful. A court clerk for the 10th circuit said the judge would not accept any questions from the press.
