The Post In Which I Lose All Can

I just can't with Carson today. 

Carson compares slaves to immigrants coming to ‘a land of dreams and opportunity’:

 "'That's what America is about. A land of dreams and opportunity. There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less,' said Carson, speaking extemporaneously as he paced the room with a microphone. 'But they, too, had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land.'"

Washington Attorney General Robert Ferguson said Monday the state was reviewing the legal implications after the new order’s announcement. But legal experts noted Trump’s rhetoric and past comments could still threaten the revised order in court.

“Some of the challenges to the initial order would be blunted by the changes reflected in the newly issued travel ban, but the most fundamental constitutional infirmities in the original ban, stemming from its grounding in anti-Muslim sentiment rather than in any rational assessment of danger, all remain,” said Laurence Tribe, a Harvard University constitutional law professor.
