More than 100,000 pages of documents exposing how the chemical industry and government regulators knew about the extraordinary toxicity of many chemical products, yet worked together to conceal this information from the public and the press, were made publicly available last week through a remarkable project called the Poison Papers.
 
This morning, a second group of important documents reached the public for the first time after a judge allowed, for the first time ever, the public release of hundreds of pages of incriminating documents regarding Monsanto and its collusion with federal regulators to keep secret scientific evidence of the toxicity of Roundup, the world’s best selling  –and most controversial—herbicide.
 
Today, critical documents released by the law firm of Baum Hedlund, which is suing Monsanto in a California federal court are available at the firm’s website here under the headline, “Monsanto’s Secret Documents.”
 
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. noted that with this disclosure, “We can now prove that all Monsanto’s claims about glyphosate’s safety were myths concocted by amoral propaganda and lobbying teams.”  Kennedy noted that federal agencies that were supposed to protect public health instead protected Monsanto’s toxic products from public oversight.

1.  To not detain refugee claimants (and other immigrants) as a matter of routine, for lengthy periods of time because they lack money or family is unable to post bond. The UNHCR has published guidelines on the detention of asylum seekers objecting to such detention. The concern is that the grounds and powers of arrest result in abuses of fundamental human rights. powers of arrest result in abuses of fundamental human rights.

 

In a debate,  a Trump supporter exclaimed that Trump would be a hero if he anounced that the children would no longer be separated from their parents, his opponent said that is like praising the arsonist who put out the fire [given it was Trump who initially gave the zero Tolerance edict]

President Donald Trump repeated a false claim that Democrats are behind his administration's "zero-tolerance" policy that separates families at the US-Mexico border.
US immigration law does not require families to be split up at the border
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the policy in May.
New immigration legislation introduced by House Republicans Friday does nothing to change the policy.
Almost 2,000 children have reportedly been separated from their families at the border over six weeks under the policy.
President Donald Trump repeated a false claim in a tweet Saturday that blames Democrats for the policy of separating immigrant parents from their children upon crossing the southern border between the US and Mexico.
