Trump's Easter Egg Roll a slapdash job; LGBT presence unlikely

Trump's Easter Egg Roll a slapdash job; LGBT presence unlikely
- Ashley Broadway-Mack, president of the LGBT group American Military Partner Association, said her organization has been invited to partake in the celebration since 2012, but has “had no communication with the Trump administration whatsoever about this year’s event.”
“As you can imagine we have many families that were hoping to attend this event, families from as far as North Carolina and New Jersey,” Broadway-Mack said. “As someone who attended the Easter Egg Roll with my own children, it’s extremely disappointing an invitation was not given to LGBT military families. This is such a wonderful experience for all children. I truly hope our families were not intentionally ignored. The Easter Egg Roll is about kids, not political agendas.”

Trump administration moving quickly to build up nationwide deportation force
The Trump administration is quickly identifying ways to assemble the nationwide deportation force that President Trump promised on the campaign trail as he railed against the dangers posed by illegal immigration.
An internal Department of Homeland Security assessment obtained by The Washington Post shows the agency has already found 33,000 more detention beds to house undocumented immigrants, opened discussions with dozens of local police forces that could be empowered with enforcement authority and identified where construction of Trump’s border wall could begin.
The agency also is considering ways to speed up the hiring of hundreds of new Customs and Border Patrol officers, including ending polygraph and physical fitness tests in some cases, according to the documents.
