Donald Trump has really dug himself a deep hole in a ruined cavern of soullessness this time. He saw no problem terrorizing toddlers, little children, and kids of legal asylum seekers as leverage for his beloved wall. This is not in line with American values and people are fighting back – hard. This is how.
Luckily, a number of U.S. state governors have found a way to fight back. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan tweeted that he was rescinding any and all National Guards deployed to the border immediately:
‘Until this policy of separating children from their families has been rescinded, Maryland will not deploy any National Guard resources to the border. Earlier this morning, I ordered our 4 crew members & helicopter to immediately return from where they were stationed in New Mexico.
‘Washington has failed again & again to deliver needed immigration reform – Congress and the administration must step up and work together to fix our broken system. Immigration enforcement efforts should focus on criminals, not separating innocent children from their families.’
All 49 Democratic senators have legislation to halt this soulless tragedy. Thus far, Republicans have just begun to step up to the plate and criticize Trump for creating this horrific tragedy.
Trump blamed the Democrats. He blamed the media. He blamed mothers with children in arms fleeing certain death. He lied. Big man beating up on infants and toddlers.
The hate-filled Trump adviser, Stephen Miller, is the one who dreamed this whole thing up. The sound of the little kids sobbing is heartbreaking. Miller and Trump are cold and must be heartless.
Reporters still have not been able to find any information about where they took the girls and toddlers since the only video available was sanitized and sent out by the Trump administration and only shows boys. The Secretary of Homeland Security, Kirstjen Nielsen, had no idea where they were located – she said she would have to get back to reporters. Trump ordered a one-year-old child shipped 1500 miles away from the parent in detention. His administration has no plan on how to link up the children they ripped out of the arms of their parents.
People across the country are angry. Here are some more of our favorite Twitter responses below:
