Some migrants flown by DeSantis to Martha’s Vineyard qualify for victim visas, feds say (www.miamiherald.com)

Some of the 49 migrants flown to Martha’s Vineyard by the state of Florida are now able to legally work in the United States and have temporary protections from deportation — because they are considered victims of a potential crime, their attorney says....

So even though all these migrants were subjected to the same treatment only some of them are getting legal protections?

… so, even though all of these migrants were subjected to the same treatment, only some of them are getting legal protection?

Also, were all of these migrants told about the opportunity to apply for this special kind of visa? Or did the cops just pick and choose their favorites?

It’s good to hear some people are getting visas, but allowing a criminally broken immigration system to just keep ruining peoples’ lives and only fixing it for a small handful of them isn’t justice.

I mean, it’s not like we’re rescuing people from a natural disaster or something out of our control here, we’re stopping an unjust government action from being taken against some people but not others. The only thing stopping us from extending this same humane treatment to all of them is political indifference.

Pretty hard to apply for the thing if you’re not told about it and given the application. Were they all told about it?

Wowza, they actually went through that whole article without mentioning that the university ordered an NYPD raid on student protesters last week and issued suspensions against a bunch of them.

But, no, that couldn’t have anything to do with these increased tensions, it’s definitely 100% because this is the first day of Passover /s

Good on them for saying what they needed to say to get vital legislation passed, now bounce Johnson’s christofascist ass outta there

I am pretty certain jury verdicts have to be unanimous or it’s a mistrial, so, yeah, that’s a reasonable thing to think

And he’s always been a lying manipulative piece of shit too.

Exemplifying that here - he actually does get unlimited strikes if there’s a legal reason that juror shouldn’t be there (e.g. if they say, “I’m not going to consider the evidence, I’ve already made up my mind.”) He’s only limited to 10 strikes without having a legal basis for them, but his followers are going to see Trump’s whining and walk away with the impression that his lawyers are forced to spend those 10 strikes on “I’ve already made up my mind” jurors.

Nobody places less value on Russian life than Russian leadership, from the Tsars onward

Congress only issued an approval because the ongoing British blockade during the Revolutionary war was stopping Bibles from being imported how they had been previously and that was leading to protesters saying maybe this whole fight for independence isn’t worth it. It was a wartime PR move.

Also worth noting that this approval happened years before the Bill of Rights was a thing.

Heavy Rain and Floods Kill 19 in Oman and Disrupt Dubai Airport | A year’s worth of rain fell in one day in some areas across Oman and the United Arab Emirates, bringing cities to a standstill. (www.nytimes.com)

The extreme weather appeared to be the result of a relatively normal weather system bringing rain that had been turbocharged by ocean and atmospheric warming, said Janette Lindesay, a climate scientist at the Australian National University. “It’s highly likely that global heating has played a role in the intensity of the...

Some possible misinformation that’s going around related to this story, Bloomberg says Dubai’s cloud seeding program is to blame, Wired says Bloomberg is wrong about that. The Wired article sounds better informed and more persuasive imo.

“this kind of content,” Why are you making people give reddit traffic to figure out what you’re talking about about?

No, if 2016 didn’t wake them up I don’t think anything will, I’m pretty thoroughly convinced they would still be whining about Nader voters as they were being taken to the gallows by Republicans,

Everyone who can be woke already is and its just about calling out their dumb moderate ideas while they can still be stopped and primarying their people with real progressives. Democratic candidates losing to Republicans doesn’t make that any easier, if anything it just empowers moderates because the “leftist purity tests did this” narrative plays really well with low information voters.

People were saying that about Taliban guerilla fighters a few years ago (Taliban can go to hell but my point is occupying hostile territory is usually unsustainable)
