By Elie Mystal
Today 9:29 am

On Monday, the Republicans put on a full-throated defense of President Donald Trump in his impeachment trial in front of the United States Senate. It was a disjointed presentation.

But dozens of immigration judges have reported that despite their efforts to stick out the presidency, they’ve just reached their breaking points.
