Just visited the Homestead, Fla. facility where 70 kids who were separated from their families are being held. They would not let me see the kids. They told me they have no plan in place to reunify them with their parents.

Calling racism racism is less offensive than racism.

The young people will win! Some early evidence in my hometown of Montgomery County, Maryland. Early vote turnout here among 18-24 years olds is up 276% over the 2014 primary. That is HUGE.

I just heard about a restaurant kicking Sarah Sanders out of a restaurant and it’s got me thinking that Democrats have to be talking about health care today and every day till the election.

Civility is great. Fighting institutional cruelty is currently a higher priority!

Democrats have specific plans on 1) universal healthcare 2) prescription drugs 3) economic stagnation 4) affordable higher ed 5) climate 6) immigration and so on but we apologize for our difficulty breaking through with our white papers while BABIES ARE IN CAGES

The secret that many people don’t know is that a straight up or down vote on the wall in the Senate would fail because because R’s quietly hate this stupid profligate useless monument to a campaign slogan.

If we allow cruelty as government policy to open a legislative negotiation, and if it succeeds, it will never stop.

This is a joke. I think it is not unfair.

This is unfair. The Democrats have plenty of extreme nominees who, for example want all Americans to have healthcare.

It is important to remember that every GOP Presidential contender tries to get his endorsement and the media treats it like it’s a big “get” rather than, say, something disqualifying.

YOU must establish a Congressional check against Trump, and WE do that by winning in November. Tweeting and Facebooking is good. Protesting is good. Donating is key. Making phone calls and door knocking is huge. Do what you can, and don’t assume anyone else has got this for you.

People in White House sound as confused as everyone else about what happens after the president's EO, which McGahn was against him signing. There's inter-agency disagreement about what it means. Trump now essentially tunes his chief of staff out, Trump driving the train.

Yes. Among many other things we need congressional oversight.

There is zero evidence that the full resources of the federal government are being devoted to reuniting these children with their parents, and there is at least some evidence to the contrary.
