U.S. detains and nearly deports French Holocaust historian...Henry Rousso is one of France’s most preeminent scholars and public intellectuals. Last week, as the historian attempted to enter the United States to attend an academic symposium, he was detained for more than 10 hours — for no clear reason.

We're in deep trouble here and it's going to get worse before it gets better.

Trump's disease is contagious and will spread like an epidemic through a,system that is manned by people who are most susceptible to succumbing to the effects of this malady.

Thanks for commenting Ron.  Customs and Border Patrol has a long history of profiling and harassing all kinds of people for a wide range of prejudice.  I experienced it when I returned from the PRC in 1991 with my boss who was a naturalized US Citizen from Iran.  He knew in advance that there would be a delay and he apologized as we stood in line at LAX.  Customs stamped my passport and passed me through then sure enough, despite his US Passport, he was pulled aside for further processing and when I commented that he was right I was told to join him.  It's only because of the recent executive order that these incidents are reported by the mainstream media.
