Some days, I hardly recognize my government and the way it is supposed to comport to the principles of democracy and constitutional fairness. This week we had the Senate majority doggedly pushing for a repeal of the Affordable Care Act, supported by less than 15 percent of American public, which could leave up to 26 million Americans uninsured.  Few in the Senate know what they are voting on because the various drafts of the legislation are cooked up behind closed doors, with no hearings, no opportunity for public comment, and little debate.

DETROIT--The White House has refused to release a memo from a commission established by Rudolph Giuliani that was created with the express purpose of creating a legal rationale for the Muslim Ban.

DETROIT – The Arab-American Civil Rights League and the ACLU of Michigan have announced that they will continue their lawsuit challenging the Muslim ban after a revised executive order was signed today by President Donald Trump. The revised order, which still discriminatorily prohibits the travel of some immigrants from designated Muslim-majority countries and halts the refugee resettlement program temporarily, was condemned by the organizations as a transparent attempt to continue the same policies that were already rejected by the courts as unconstitutional.
