The point we have reached in this country

This is an audio that Pro Publica obtained from the inside of a child detention center in Texas. It’s heartbreaking. Children as young as a year are being separated from their parents at the border. This is a trump policy, not a democratic policy, and trump could end it immediately. But he wants funding for his border wall, so he uses these children as a political weapon.

This is the point we’ve reached as a country.  Now some of these kids are going to be placed in tent cities. If you’re a parent, imagine what this feels like. Even if you don’t have kids, think about the parallels between this and Nazi Germany. What’s next? The internment of journalists, of anyone who criticizes trump? Disagrees with him?

As the protagonist in The Handmaid’s Tale said, “How did we get to this point?”

    Anything is to be expected from this autocratic, fascist, segregational regime. So sad.

  2. C.J. says:

    This morning Trump drafted a new bill reversing his previous bill supporting the separation of children from their parents. We’ll see how this goes.

    • Trish and Rob says:

      It does nothing to reuinite kids with their parents – 2300 of them. This bears eerie parallels to what happened in Nazi Germany, CJ.

  3. The state our country is in is beyond upsetting, beyond depressing. Beyond telling. Screeeeeem!
