I don't think it's illegal; as far as I'm aware publications don't have a right to be represented in the White House press corps, and reporters can have their right to be there revoked.

So not illegal, just deeply, deeply disturbing.

Has any other president ever done that? It's bizarre beyond belief.

I've seen people saying that Obama has done the same before (To Fox News it seems) but there was hardly any response over it.

It's a lot funnier that Richard Spencer said before "that banning the press was the act of a dictatorship" :lol:




And just for some clarification the outlets named aren't banned from Press Conferences they are still allowed to go to them but he has banned them from his office/personal stuff.

Wow, even Fox News have told the WH to go suck a fat one after the ban. Interesting times.

Oh wow.

Trump calls for new government agency for 'victims of crime' by immigrants

President Donald Trump called on the Department of Homeland Security to "create an office to serve American victims" of crimes committed by immigrants.

In his address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night, Trump said the office will be called Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE).

"We are providing a voice to those who have been ignored by our media, and silenced by special interests," Trump said.

This office, Trump said, would support the "victims of crime."

Trump has repeatedly made claims related to crime committed by immigrants and used that rhetoric as a pretext for his restrictive immigration policies.

Though Trump said the new office will target criminal actors, he did not produce any evidence that immigrants commit a disproportionate amount of crime in the United States.

The U.S. violent crime rate has plunged dramatically since about 1990.


So... anti-immigrant propaganda office, complete with Bond-esque evil organisation name?

How long before we get an American Kristallnacht against immigrants? This is getting scarier day by day.

He's quite literally bonkers, isn't he?

When Dubya seems to be revelling in his new-found role as the voice of reason and being 'the guy who wasn't that bad, actually, when you look at who we have now', then you've got to be worried.

You know how I made that flippant remark about how the border wall could save lives. Well between 2000 and 2012 in Arizona alone 2,721 bodies were recovered from the border area. That's a shocking number.

Interesting number that. Much higher than I'd have thought. Drownings mostly?

Ah right :). I had visions of most of this happening at some stretch of whatever that mahoosive river is that forms part of the border. That might all be in my imagination though and from watching no country for old men.
