Last week, the Trump Administration unveiled a new “public charge” rule, which is likely to hurt immigrant families, including U.S. citizen children. The Washington Post’s Greg Sargent pointed out how deeply unpopular Trump’s immigration ideas are, while voter registration numbers were found to be up, with just weeks to go before this November’s elections. Finally, a memo revealed that DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was lying when she claimed to not know about families being separated.
