Rep. Joaquin Castro talks about the ongoing cruel stunts being conducted by Republican governors Greg Abbott, Ron DeSantis, and Doug Ducey to pander to anti-migrant Trump voters, and the real work that needs to be done to improve the U.S. immigration system.


 Alicia Menendez, guest-hosting "Alex Wagner Tonight," opened the show with a segment condemning Republicans for their immigration policies, suggesting Christian conservatives were somehow being hypocritical "in a season all about welcoming the stranger."

After slamming Texas Gov. Greg Abbot for having bussed asylum seekers to Vice President Kamala Harris' residence in Washington DC, a sanctuary city, on a cold Christmas Eve, and mocking the GOP for its commitment to "Christian values," Menendez suggested that Title 42 was being used disingenuously.

"Title 42 is not immigration policy meant for extended use," she said. "It’s a public health measure that Republicans are now using as a political cudgel to advance their anti-immigrant agenda, in line with other stunts on their other tactics."

She followed up by quoting Castro as he slammed Abbott with the apparently sarcastic statement, "How Christian of you," on Twitter.

Here’s more from Post Millennial:

Rep Joaquin Castro : "Worthless Gov Abbott dropping off people with no money and no means on Christmas Eve in 15 degree weather near the VP’s residence. How Christian of you, Greg Abbott. Being a heartless POS isn’t going to make you the next Republican President."

Menendez observed while interviewing Castro that his tweet over the weekend had "really struck a nerve" and asked for his reaction to seeing images of those migrants dropped off in DC.

"I was so upset that Greg Abbott, because he thinks he can become president, and because these guys like Abbott and DeSantis are so drunk on Trumpenness, that they’re trying to be as mean and as cruel as they possibly can."

In Tuesday's 5-4 ruling, Supreme Court Justices Roberts, Samuel Alito, Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Clarence Thomas agreed to hear a challenge from Republican-led states against ending Title 42 during the February 2023 argu­ment session.

Title 42 has been used to deter migrants more than 2.5 million times. Despite that, a record 2.3 million migrants were encountered at the border in fiscal year 2022, according to Customs and Border Protection.

Cuomo, Lemon discuss Trump's comments on race

NBC Washington Correspondent Yamiche Alcindor and former U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade join Andrea Mitchell to discuss key challenges facing the January 6 Committee ahead of their primetime hearings this week: getting a "distracted nation" to pay attention and understand what's at stake. “I think the biggest challenge for lawmakers here, as they talk about these sort of huge ideas of American democracy and sort of the experiment that we're all living in, benefiting from, possibly being brought to his knees, is whether or not they can make people care,” says Alcindor. “The American public has been groomed to expect high value quick entertainment,” says McQuade. "I think putting together a polished show can be very important."

Cho tam giac ABC có cosA=5/9 , D thuộc cạnh BC sao cho (ABC) ̂=(DAC) ̂, DA=6, BD=16/3. Tính chu vi tam giác ABC.

Cho tam giác ABC vuông tại A có AB < AC. Vẽ AH vuông góc với BC ( H thuộc BC), D là điểm trên cạnh AC sao cho AD=AB. Vẽ DE vuông góc với BC( E thuộc BC). Chứng minh rằng : HA=HE.
