Sick alert - Anti-abortion activist kept spreadsheet on immigrant girls' reproductive functions

Back in November, the Washington Examiner reported on some bureaucratic shuffling in Scott Lloyd out at Office of Refugee Resettlement, heads to new role. So why am I now troubling you with this piece of Trumpish trivia? Read on.

Scott Lloyd, the head of the Office of Refugee Resettlement who came under scrutiny for his anti-abortion actions in his role, will be changing jobs within the federal government.

Lloyd will be heading to the Department of Health Human Services’ Center for Faith and Opportunity Initiatives, where he will be senior adviser. The development, first reported in the Daily Caller, was confirmed by HHS press secretary Evelyn Stauffer.

“While I have valued my time at the Office of Refugee Resettlement, I am excited to take on this new challenge,” Lloyd said in a statement, adding that he was “proud” of what his former agency had accomplished.

And what, exactly did he accomplish?

In his role at the Office of Refugee Resettlement, Lloyd blocked several teens who were in government custody and in the country illegally from getting abortions. His actions drew outcry from Democratic members of Congress and triggered numerous lawsuits. …

It gets worse.

On Friday Rachel Maddow reported how the Trump admin tracked individual migrant girls’ pregnancies.

Rachel Maddow reports exclusively on details of a newly obtained spreadsheet kept by the Trump administration’s Office of Refugee Resettlement, led by anti-abortion activist Scott Lloyd, tracking the pregnancies of unaccompanied minor girls. Brigitte Amiri, ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project senior staff attorney, joins to discuss details of the case.

Go watch Rachel’s report on this one. Scriber thinks this guy, Lloyd, is one sick dude.

So he landed in the “Center for Faith and Opportunity Initiatives.” I didn’t know that HHS had become churchified.
