The caravan is not a "National Emergy" or a security threat. Many of these individuals are fleeing violence in their home country with the intention of seeking asylum. They are people. They have human rights. You cannot scare us away from the truth.

The Trump administration's hateful agenda of discrimination not only erases rights for Americans, it sends a dangerous message to the rest of the world where transgender people are at risk.

Great to have & on my panel “Police Use of Lethal Force + Human Rights” at Midwest regional. We talked about core concepts like proportionality, accountability & necessity, + had a great chat on what that should look like in practice.

FYI : asking for asylum is not a crime. You & this Admin like to treat those at our southern border like criminals, but they are not. They are human beings, on a desperate journey for safety & a new chance at life. You lock them in cold prisons & tear away their kids.
