It’s 920 pages of hate, and the people presenting it are trying to make it part of the platform of the Republican Party.

  17. Make it harder to get asylum.
  18. Remove visas given to victims of trafficking unless they “cooperate” with law enforcement.
  19. Repeal Temporary Protected Status, which is given to people in genuine danger while asylum proceedings take place.
  20. Remove subsidized flood insurance (this would make homes uninsurable in swathes of the country)
  21. Deny student loans if your school allows illegal aliens to have…
