The suffering children's open line

Posted By on Sun, May 27, 2018 at 4:46 PM

Until it's fixed, nobody is doing enough to resist the Trump administration's cruel and thoughtless handling of asylum-seeking children.

I am reminded of politicians in Arkansas who pitched a fit about providing shelter for children here. Perhaps we should be thankful the horror show isn't within our borders.

PS: these photos date to Obama administration. Big difference today:

They were dealing then with unaccompanied kids.. The attorney general wasn’t ordering family separation as deterrent to asylum seekers.

The open line.

PS: Check this Twitter photo of what appears to be a prison bus for babies. Kind of makes you want to stand and salute the flag, doesn't it?
