(Excerpted from the Congressional Record, October 6, 2011, and Senator Patrick Leahy's remarks on Senate Resolution 201, expressing the Senate's regret over the Chinese Exclusion Act.)

The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 explicitly banned Chinese immigrants from entering the United States for 10 years, and this ban was renewed and ultimately made permanent by Congress through subsequent enactments. In passing these laws, Congress failed to adhere to our Nation’s basic founding principles that all are created equal, and that all persons deserve basic human and civil rights. Instead, Congress allowed fear and ignorance to drive our Nation’s immigration policy and, for the first time, to exclude from our country a single group of people based solely on their race.

That was wrong. Ours in a Nation of immigrants and of equality and these laws offended both of those fundamental precepts of America.

So President Trump wants to bitch about how NATO isn't working, but his SecState isn't going to attend a meeting in April, but instead pop off to Russia to say hello to Vladimir Putin?

You're POTUS, you're in a Cabinet meeting with the press in the room, and you manage to look like you're telling an obscene joke.

But the bigger point is that American civilization is civic and does not depend on race. There are no “other people’s babies” here. All American babies are our babies. People of all races have contributed to American civilization.

Other people's babies. Or, in light of Steve King's prior comments, white people's babies.

Fifty years since the Civil Rights Act, and the first thing that Steve King does in the Trump presidency is loudly and proudly proclaim his racist beliefs domestically and abroad. (King and Dana Rohrbacher met with LePen in February.)

These guys have been watching too much Survivor, and other reality TV where you get to vote people off the show.

Others have posted this, but it's an excellent rebuttal and deserves the boost.

Because the Holocaust would have been so much more popular with a snappy acronym.

The Osher Marin Jewish Community Center in San Rafael, California was one of several that received bomb threats today.

About an hour ago the Osher Marin JCC received a bomb threat. We followed our security protocol and safely evacuated everyone from the building. The Osher Marin JCC was one of many JCCs nationwide that received a threat of this nature today.

We just received the all clear from local law enforcement and the JCC will reopen today at 6:30pm.

Thank you for your patience and support.

Despite reservations about the film diving deep into the 'White Savior' trope, I went to see The Great Wall.

It's a visually stunning film, but, yes - Damon's character is the lone European/good man among thieves (other Europeans) who also ends up being critical to the plot's resolution. There's no getting around it.

The other character dynamics are also action-movie clichés, including the Clueless Bureaucrat and the Noble Sacrifice.

WETA Workshop did some of the effects work, and Ramin Djawadi (Game of Thrones) composed the score.
