The Seattle City Council voted to set up a $1.3 million legal aid fund for immigrants facing deportation.
This strikes me as an incredibly bold move. I hope it catches on.
And this is why winging it with missiles and foreign policy is a bad idea.
On the Syrian missile attack:
The problem is not missile strikes against Syrian bases in response to Syrian use of chemical weapons. The problem is the impetuousness of the decision and the utter lack of an overall strategy. It is deeply concerning when someone who just discovered that health care reform is complicated decides to fix the Syrian civil war. Could missile strikes and some form of military engagement be part of a rational US strategy re Syria? Maybe, but Trump is winging it.
