The President of THIS country refuses to admonish another for election interference & now encouraged another to not allow 2 citizens & duly elected members of entry. It's antithetical to all America claims to be. We can't be silent

It's interesting to see people who suffer and are suffering suggest to not help others. The problem is not that there isn't a way to get resources to everyone. Its that a few benefit and the rest don't. We all feel it when a community suffers.

The two deaths by suicide of officers in the last two days are part of a crisis that often goes unseen as officers suffer in silence, now made visible in tragedy & loss. We need to come together and act. My statement with and the Grand Council of Guardians:
