Under the Convention on the Rights of the Child is the recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world:  (Convention On the Rights of the child)

 

 

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.

US MUST ELIMINATE ITS CONTRIBUTION TO GLOBAL INSECURITY AND FURTHER TRUE SECURITY: COMMON SECURITY

 

The Global Community could stand in support of global common security or be coerced into supporting the US in its long standing and accelerating contribution to global militarism and global insecurity. Common security can only be achieved if there is a concerted international effort to eliminated the complexity and interdependence of the actions that have led to global insecurity

 

Actions by the US, and other states, by corporations, by institutions, and individuals have provoked directly or indirectly conflict around the world that have increase global insecurity.

The US administration and US corporations aided and abetted by institutions and individuals, have contributed to global insecurity

 

(i)  Engaged in covert and overt "Operations" against independent states; from "Operation Zapata", and "Operation Northwoods" against Cuba, through "Operation Condor" in Chile, through years of euphemistic operations such as "Operation Just Cause" against Panama and more recently "Operation enduring freedom" against Afghanistan, and "Operation Iraqi Freedom" against Iraq

 

(ii) Promoted the spread of Evangelical Christianity around the world, undermining local indigenous cultures, and instilling fear through the dangerous, and absurd belief in the "rapture", "Armageddon" and "left behind" and denigrating other established beliefs and practices and catered to the fundamentalists inspired by Ed McAteer, recently raptured, who in 1983 stated that "nuclear weapons are part of God's design; and promulgated “premillennial dispensationalism “end times" scenario which has serious irreversible consequences.

Donald Trump has been blocking those who criticized him on Twitter.  A Judge told him to unblock them because blocking them is infringing on their first amendment rights to free speech.


Does this mean that since he is refusing to do so that he is making Twitter complicit in infringing on first amendment rights? 


Should Twitter block Trump's twitter account?  Should the judge yank Twitter's business licence and criminally charge Twitter if it continues to allow Trump to use Twitter to break the law?
