Classic sketch. I tried to post the video earlier but it got blocked for copyright, so you’ll have to watch it on YouTube. Just search “Executive Order SNL”. Which of the traits we discussed in class might apply? #MakesOrBreaksLaws #CircumventsAssemblies 🏛 #AppliedHistory #EqualTime #HistoricalConnections #Augustus #JamesIofEngland
What do you think? 🤔 Does that sound like one of the traits from our lesson? Perhaps an appeal to #CulturalUniformity? If you don’t align to to a certain standard, “maybe you shouldn’t be in the country.” 🇺🇸 #AppliedHistory #HistoryConnections #ShiHuangdi #LouisXIV #PeterTheGreat
The Trump administration recently announced a new, get-tough policy that will separate parents from their children if the family is caught crossing the border illegally. It was a big news story. So big it overshadowed the fact that the federal government has lost — yes, lost — 1,475 migrant children in its custody. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told Congress that within 48 hours of being taken into custody the children are transferred to the Department of Health and Human Services, which finds places for them to stay. “They will be separated from their parent,” said Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif. “Just like we do in the United States every day,” Nielsen replied. Just like in the states, only ... not. Except that the states, unlike the federal government, have systems in place to better screen the people who become guardians of the children and much better ways to keep track of those children. And not lose them. That is what happened to 1,475 minors swept up at the border and taken into custody by the federal government. Gone.
