This is a sinister ploy to incarcerate families without education and in questionable health. These policies amount to state-sponsored child abuse. Follow the money. Who is profiting from these camps?

There were 2 mass shootings by white supremacists over the past 2 months. THAT’S terrorism. You are emboldening them today. If blood is spilled today in Portland, it’s on your hands.

The price of a personal computer in 1990 was nearly $4,000. Today, you can get one for below $500. In 1996, a vial of insulin was $21. Today it’s more than $100. Our drug costs should not be this high. Antavia Lee-Worsham died because of it.
