nice non-answer. here's the real one: either KH was aware and directly responsible for the actions taken under her watch, or she was oblivious to this happening under her watch.

take your pick, but being outside your echo chamber, i can tell you it wont play well in the GE.

A few years ago a teenager in San Francisco made a mistake that landed him in immigration detention. One day after school, the 13-year-old punched his classmate and stole 46 cents.

The student, an undocumented immigrant from Australia, apologized, but the school called the police, who turned the teen over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ICE detained him for a few days and threatened to deport him and his family.

“He was traumatized and he was scared,” said Angela Chan, the policy director for Asian Americans Advancing Justice — Asian Law Caucus and the immigration attorney who represented the boy and his family. “It is a human rights violation to separate a young child from their family for an adolescent mistake,” Chan told HuffPost.

 

It was no accident the teenager ended up detained by ICE back in 2010. More than 100 immigrant youth in San Francisco were detained or deported because of a 2008 city policy implemented by former mayor and now-Gov. Gavin Newsom and supported by Kamala Harris, then the city’s district attorney, who is now a Democratic senator running for president. 

Though San Francisco is a sanctuary city, the policy required police to notify ICE about undocumented youth arrested for felonies, in some cases for minor crimes. The juveniles were handed over even before guilt or innocence was proved.

Immigration advocates told HuffPost that Harris needs to publicly revoke her support for the policy and acknowledge the trauma it caused San Francisco’s undocumented youth and their families. Otherwise, they say, she cannot be a credible voice on immigrant rights, an issue that will be at the forefront of the 2020 election.

the current democrat strategists are the best proof that meritocracy is a crock of poo.

what undecided voters does KH bring Biden?

black voters? can't imagine they are inspired by this selection of a cop in the light of the protests, especially those under 35.

women? white women will likely still vote for Trump at a similar rate to 2016. i can't see them breaking off to Biden in a consequential way.

non-voters? who is inspired by this ticket besides PMC libs, idpol obsessed nuts, Dem loyalists, and that elusive Obama-Trump voter?

On the morning of April 18, 2013, in the Los Angeles suburb of Buena Park, a throng of photographers positioned themselves on a street curb and watched as two police officers entered a squat townhouse. Minutes later, their cameras began clicking. The officers had re-emerged with a weary-looking woman in pajamas and handcuffs, and the photographers were jostling to capture her every step. 

“You would swear I had killed somebody,” the woman, Cheree Peoples, said in a recent interview. 

In fact, Peoples had been arrested for her daughter’s spotty school attendance record under a truancy law that then-California Attorney General Kamala Harris had personally championed in the state legislature. The law, enacted in January 2011, made it a criminal misdemeanor for parents to allow kids in kindergarten through eighth grade to miss more than 10 percent of school days without a valid excuse. Peoples’ 11-year-old daughter, Shayla, had missed 20 days so far that school year.

The law was the capstone of Harris’ yearslong campaign to get “tough” on truancy, the term for when a child consistently misses school without a valid excuse. Harris’ involvement began in the mid-2000s, when the future senator and 2020 presidential candidate was the San Francisco district attorney. Harris had been disturbed to learn that a disproportionate number of the city’s homicide victims were high school dropouts, and that dropouts are more likely to become perpetrators or victims of crimes. Preventing truancy, she argued, was not just about the noble goal of ensuring every child’s education, but a matter of averting future criminals. So it only made sense for the city’s top law enforcement officer to get involved. Harris filed charges against a handful of San Francisco parents whose elementary school-aged children were consistently missing school.

A few years later, she persuaded the state legislature to adopt harsher penalties for truancy. Under the new law, the parent or guardian of a young, truant child could face a fine of $2,500 or more — or one year in jail. Harris pushed hard for the law as she was running for attorney general, and it passed just as she won the election.

Well, it is the reality of virtually every politician.  Which despite it being a poo answer....you know it is is true. Tulsi wasn’t lying and she also wasn’t telling the actual truth   She isn’t unique in that. 

She will shore up some minority votes because she is progress.  She will shore up some women.  Largely she is a non-factor in the big picture of what 2020 is though.   

2020 remains Trump centric. 

and Team Trump struggles with women like her.  Which was talked about in the DNC primary.  She didn’t run good vs Dems.  But she would run good vs the right machine.   There comedy routine of nicknames and radical Armageddon won’t sell.  She is a strong woman and they are weak as fug against that (politics aside).   

So again, she doesn’t weaken Biden.  She just makes strong what he had.  But she doesn’t grow him.

ONEWEST BANK, WHICH Donald Trump’s nominee for treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, ran from 2009 to 2015, repeatedly broke California’s foreclosure laws during that period, according to a previously undisclosed 2013 memo from top prosecutors in the state attorney general’s office.

The memo obtained by The Intercept alleges that OneWest rushed delinquent homeowners out of their homes by violating notice and waiting period statutes, illegally backdated key documents, and effectively gamed foreclosure auctions.

In the memo, the leaders of the state attorney general’s Consumer Law Section said they had “uncovered evidence suggestive of widespread misconduct” in a yearlong investigation. In a detailed 22-page request, they identified over a thousand legal violations in the small subsection of OneWest loans they were able to examine, and they recommended that Attorney General Kamala Harris file a civil enforcement action against the Pasadena-based bank. They even wrote up a sample legal complaint, seeking injunctive relief and millions of dollars in penalties.

But Harris’s office, without any explanation, declined to prosecute the case.

Mnuchin, the former CEO of OneWest, was already facing challenges in his upcoming Senate confirmation hearings on account of his bank’s ruthless foreclosure practices, ranging from locking out one homeowner during a Minneapolis blizzard to foreclosing on another over a 27-cent payment shortfall.

“After years peddling the kind of dangerous mortgage-backed securities that eventually blew up the economy, Mnuchin swooped in after the crash to take a second bite out of families by aggressively — and sometimes illegally — foreclosing on their homes,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren said in a statement last month. Sen. Ron Wyden, the top Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, warned: “Given Mr. Mnuchin’s history of profiting off the victims of predatory lending, I look forward to asking him how his Treasury Department would work for Americans who are still waiting for the economic recovery to show up in their communities.”

The consistent violations of California foreclosure processes outlined in the memo would indicate that Mnuchin’s bank didn’t merely act callously, but did so with blatant disregard for the law.

According to the memo, OneWest also obstructed the investigation by ordering third parties to refuse to comply with state subpoenas.

Whether Mnuchin directed efforts to prevent scrutiny of his bank’s practices could be a focus of the confirmation hearings.

The memo also raises questions about then-California Attorney General Kamala Harris, who was sworn in as a U.S. senator on Tuesday, and who will soon have to vote on Mnuchin’s appointment.

Why did her office close the case, deciding not to “conduct a full investigation of a national bank’s misconduct and provide a public accounting of what happened,” as her own investigators had urged?

In the 2016 election cycle, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin donated to only one Democratic Senate candidate. 

But it wasn’t Sen. Joe Manchin III of West Virginia, the only Democrat who voted to confirm him for the position Monday night and who is up for re-election next year. It was freshman Sen. Kamala Harris of California, who has her own history with the new Cabinet official and voted against Mnuchin’s nomination.

Mnuchin gave Harris’ campaign $2,000 last year, according to records from the Federal Election Commission, making her the only Democrat who ran on the national level to receive money from him that cycle.

hmmm wonder why he did that

I don’t see this as being a good thing for any black man that isn’t elite or have a little bit of cash to their name.

Who is that Howie guy I’ve seen on here from the Green Party? Any links to his values and what he supports? I’d still like to take part in the voting process this November.

California Attorney General Kamala Harris late Monday made a new request on behalf of her state to halt a district court ruling in favor of gender reassignment surgery for transgender inmate.

In a 29-page request before the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Harris and other state attorneys call on the appeals court to stay the procedure for Michelle-Lael Norsworthy, who’s incarcerated at Mule Creek State Prison in Ione, Calif., for second-degree murder.

“There is no evidence that irreversible treatment is immediately necessary before this appeal can be heard and the factual record can be fully developed in a proceeding on remand,” the request states. “On the other hand, the record demonstrates that the Defendants will be irreparably injured if the district court’s order stands and surgery goes forward because the case will effectively become moot, precluding appellate review.”

Last month, U.S. District Jon Tigar ordered the California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation to grant Norsworthy the procedure on the basis that withholding it constituted cruel and unusual punishment under the Eighth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

“I think there’s some room for growth [in the Democratic Party]. If Jamaal Bowman replaces [Rep.] Eliot Engel [D-N.Y.], that would be an advance,” he said.

“But it’s gonna be change at the margins. And from the Green Party perspective, we need fundamental change,” Hawkins added. “The progressive program as articulated by Bernie Sanders, even though he didn’t run from the democratic socialist label, it was really New Deal liberalism.”

Hawkins has called for more drastic measures on several fronts. His version of the Green New Deal would “decarbonize” the U.S. economy by 2030, as opposed to 2050 under Sanders’s plan, and he has also embraced the party’s support of reparations for Black Americans.

“Bernie wouldn’t touch reparations. He was pretty tone-deaf on racial justice questions. He did a little bit on criminal justice reform but I don’t think he could speak to that so well,” Hawkins said.
