    Default In today's America, Kafka would be a citizen journalist

    Falsely held in anticipation of deportation for three years. No lawyer. No compensation.

    On Monday, an appeals court ruled that Watson, now 32, is not eligible for any of that money — because while his case is "disturbing," the statute of limitations actually expired while he was still in ICE custody without a lawyer.
    WTF!?

    The statute of limitations should start ticking from when the abuse stops not when it starts.

    In today's America, Kafka would be a children's book writer:

    It is remarkable to see the complacency with which the US has sold its soul.

    At least the courts aren't conspiring to support the vile lies of the executive.
