National News Roundup: Year 5, Week 18 (May 16–22)

Cleanup in Aisle 45:

Your New Normal:

The Bad:

The Good:

  • Recent Immigration Resilience. Improbably, the good news this week is about immigration! For us local folks in Massachusetts, it’s helpful to know that a particularly notorious ICE center in Bristol County (as well as another one in GA) is being closed due to egregious abuses that have been documented as occurring there, and the contracts are also being revoked. But there’s good news on the national stage too; lawyers have reunited 54 more children separated under the Zero Tolerance campaign. It’s not a final resolution, and of course reunification cannot undo all the trauma that was caused for these families by the policy in the first place. But their reunification still matters, and it’s important to note and celebrate it.
