I’ve seen several tweets comparing this to Nazis / The Holocaust and saying things like “this is how it begins”. I teach Holocaust Literature so let me be clear - this ISN’T how it began. This is already several stages along the way.

Zero Tolerance is still in effect. The Trump admin say THE LAW MUST BE ENFORCED. But just some laws: Crossing the border illegally, a MISDEMEANOR ✅ Lying on a SF-86, a FELONY ❌ Lying to Congress, a FELONY ❌ Corruption, a FELONY ❌ Tax evasion, a FELONY ❌ Emoluments ❌ ACA ❌

Trump used the furor over his immoral family separation policy as cover for another attack on our healthcare system. Virginians are already facing huge premium increases because of Trump/GOP sabotage, and all they seem able to do is make it even worse.

Trump's executive order does not fix this crisis. It gives no solution for the thousands of children who have been torn away from their families and remain separated.

BREAKING: While the Trump Administration is savagely separating children from their mothers, Republicans quietly unveiled a new plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act – demonstrating that they'll stop at nothing until people's health care is destroyed.

One last time: Any person coming to the border to seek asylum IS NOT ENTERING THE COUNTRY ILLEGALLY.

He has dehumanized a large group of people he sees as "different" by likening them to an infestation & calling them “animals” He has violated human rights by locking children up in Camps. He has called the free press the enemy of the people. I'm NOT Talking about Adolf Hitler!

This is the most disgusting thing I've seen all week says that he heard about a 10-year-old with Down Syndrome separated from her mother. Corey Lewandowski replies "Womp womp." This is the perfect example of the "Trump culture"

Since the president is lying about this, I'll reiterate that we obtained internal CBP documents that show that ****91%**** of parents whose kids are taken away are being prosecuted for misdemeanor FIRST TIME entry.

The administration’s current family separation policy is an affront to the decency of the American people, and contrary to principles and values upon which our nation was founded. The administration has the power to rescind this policy. It should do so now.

The free press needs to wake the F up. Or we won’t have one tomorrow. Call out lies. Don’t let them evade questions or talk over you. If something’s outrageous call it that. Quit being easy on them, you’re dealing with monsters calling you frauds. AND STOP GIVING LIARS AIRTIME!

BREAKING: Sarah Sanders says Trump won't support any legislation that makes it illegal to separate families at the border, unless it's combined with funding for the border wall. Trump is using these children as blackmail for a border wall. We won't be extorted by this criminal.

BREAKING: Two GOP sources tell me Trump is celebrating the border separation policy, and looking to expand it. He thinks that his policy is working, and believes his supporters think Democrats are completely to blame. He also thinks this “distraction” will let him fire Mueller...

This is Tess Thompson Talley posing proudly with the giraffe she killed last year. In a few hours Trophy Hunters, like her, will be able to petition the Wildlife Conservation Council to get their African trophies into the US. The council is stacked with hunters.
