Merrick Garland is right to prioritize domestic terrorism, but he'll need a bigger boat

  Merrick Garland is right to prioritize domestic terrorism, but he'll need a bigger boat Right-wing domestic extremism is not just a law enforcement problem to be dealt with by criminal prosecutions, as important a tool as those are. It requires a highly coordinated, well-funded, national cross-governmental initiative that addresses the problem in agencies such as the Defense Department and in state and local police forces, hardens potential targets and - this could be the toughest part - finds ways to thoroughly discredit election denial.The United States has been fortunate even in its worst disasters, as counterintuitive as that may sound. The U.S.

Susan Rice, director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, occupies the same West Wing office recently used by Stephen Miller, the Trump administration's anti-immigration hardliner, The New York Times reported Saturday.

Archie Miller Has Failed in Four Years at Indiana

  Archie Miller Has Failed in Four Years at Indiana Archie Miller has failed to elevate Indiana's basketball program in four years. Barring a miraculous turnaround, he should be fired.Indiana opened Wednesday night's contest in fine fashion, racing to a 23-8 lead at the RAC midway through the first half. The Hoosiers were quick, decisive, hit some big shots and their defensive rotations were on point. Then things went downhill faster than a Kendall Roy cocaine binge. That lead vanished as quickly as it arrived as Rutgers went on a 27-8 run and led 35-31 at the break. That sort of implosion has become far too common under Miller's watch.

As a prominent Black Democrat often vilified by conservatives, she's aware of the "symbolism" of occupying the space where Miller formulated policies, including the widely reviled child separation policy, and has taken a few steps to redecorate.

In the room, a painting from Haiti's Caribbean nation now hangs, and the room is scented with sage candles.

Burning sage has been used in indigenous people's rituals for centuries to cleanse a person or space of negativity and promote healing and wisdom.

Apparently confirming the report, Rice, on Saturday evening, tweeted a picture of the office's new decorations.

Miller was among Trump's most influential advisors. He was the architect of Trump's hardline anti-immigration strategy, including the child separation policy, the Muslim ban, and the redirection of military money to finance the wall along the southern border that remained unfinished when Trump left office.

Trump, Miller Think Road to 2022 Victory Is Immigration, Democrats See It as a Failed Playbook

  Trump, Miller Think Road to 2022 Victory Is Immigration, Democrats See It as a Failed Playbook In his CPAC speech, Donald Trump said Biden has "triggered a massive flood of illegal immigration into our country, the likes of which we have never seen before."The issue was famously one of the first things the former president brought up as a candidate in 2016, although he did not prioritize it in his 2020 race.

Under the child separation policy, thousands of children were separated from their undocumented migrant parents and held in squalid detention facilities on the US-Mexican border.

He survived calls from Democrats for his resignation after emails were obtained by the Southern Poverty Law Center showing him promoting white nationalist conspiracy theories and citing notorious white nationalist websites.

Rice, a domestic policy advisor, is taking a key role in President Biden's reversal of Trump-era migration policies.

On February 3, Rice said that the administration would form a special task force to reunite the 3,000 children still displaced due to the child separation policy with their parents or family.

Rice served as Barack Obama's national security advisor and attracted criticism from conservatives over the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, where a US diplomat was killed.

In February, the administration was criticized for reopening one of the Trump administration's detention facilities for children to house unaccompanied minors entering the country.
