Our so-called representatives in government want to protect fetuses up to the moment of birth, but don't give a rat's arse about children who have already been born. If they're the wrong color or nationality - yank 'em away from their mammas and lock 'em in dog kennels!

Did Tillis shoot himself in the foot?  He's a GOPIGGER, in N.C....I doubt he will loose.  Let's see what happens with the 9th district election, as a possible indicator.  Still, one never knows, do one?
I believe that the GOPIGGIES are, once again, if not just about always, on the wrong side of history.  They are interested in nought but remaining in power, regardless of the effect on the society as a whole, the very society that gave them such a plush life style.

Thank goodness for Sen. Merkley. We would have never found out how dire this situation was and still is without him being the first government official to try to get the facts and he is still working his tail off to keep the facts coming. We need 534 more representatives like him.

Nita, we have some – but we don’t have all that we need – and you know the only way THAT gets done, so I won’t belabor it.

Off topic, but another project of Senator Merkley –
To sign on as a citizen co-sponsor to Senator Merkley's SR11 opposing going into war in Venezuela

TY TomC for keeping us posted with the necessary news and updates on mindless Jackazz-hood, -ism, -cracies -,crazies et al...

Apt and bears repeating:

...And while we’re on national emergencies: With a dozen Republicans on board, the Senate rejected Trump’s border emergency declaration, but Drumpf has already vetoed it. But as Robert B, a federal appellate attorney commented in the NYT:

Here, 41 Senate Republicans have done everything to both protect and support Trump in his most blatant and unconstitutional attempt to date to destroy our republic. If this proves anything, it is that Mitch McConnell and Congressional Republicans, not Trump, are the greatest threat to American democracy.

Merkley is a good guy he care, not lIke Lindsay, Mitch, Trumpy, when I think of how it may affect them all of their lives, Trumpy and all of his crew should be in there too. it would be different if it was their own kids1
Thank you TomCat

Truly despicable what this idiot in the W. H. keeps causing. Torturing these innocent children and their parents. He is a heartless bas*ard that needs someone to knock some sort of sense into his brainless mind.
Signed the petition Joanne listed.
Thanks TomCat

Framing this block in such a way that it had to come to a vote and Republicans were forced to show their hand was a brilliant move by the Democrats (a Pelosi plan, I believe?), but even with 12 Republicans stepping across the isle, everyone knew that Drumpf would veto it immediately, as he did, and that it’s very unlikely they’ll have 2/3 of the vote to undo his veto. But the message is clear.

However, in all the melee around the National Emergency, most tended to forget that not all children taken from their parents before the judge ordered against it, have been returned to their parents, and that, even worse, children are still being separated from their parent(s) and put in cages. So what is this judge going to do about Drumpf and his minions knowingly breaking the law and ignoring the court’s order?

It’s all part of the same strategy: wreak so much havoc that opponents no longer know what to act on next and have them completely exhausted morally and physically by running after the facts and not being able to change much. Thank goodness for people like Merkley, who stay put, i.e. not run for president and continue their fight for justice against the Drumpf regime and keep reminding the world of the dreadful things still happening in Drumpf’s name.

Earlier today, I listened to some of the testimony of Kirstjen Nielsen before the Homeland Security congressional committee. She doesn’t call the cages in your picture “cages”. Then what the hell are they? The kids are locked in a chain link fence. She said improvements have been made — there is a bench and a port-a-potty in each cage. This is absolutely disgusting! Further, as noted in Jeff’s video, kids are walked from place to place in lines with a guard at the beginning of the line and one at the end. She has previously noted that there was no policy on family separation, yet the chairman obtained an official copy DHS policy on it. Nielsen lied about it as we know. In addition, “Some of the new separations are being undertaken with no clear documentation to help track the children’s whereabouts.” Obviously, the Reich does not give a rat’s ass about these families and other migrants.

I think it was in another video that Texas Democratic Congressman Al Green quoted “The Colossus” and then went into a brief bit about immigration. As he noted, Al Capone came to the US and became a mobster and killer. Is he so different than the migrants crossing the southern border? Green was spot on!

Boy, Jeff sure does ramp up his advocacy! He definitely is a gem!

BTW, IMO, the real national emergency are the terrorists in the US federal government — the Republican Reich and their Fuhrer, Drumpfenfarten.

So, now America shares a similar guilt as the those who "didn't know" or were "just following orders". and a leader who appeals to popular discontent and twists truth to save and preserve a race based way of life from the rest of a contaminating and unworthy balance of humanity. How different is this from concentration camps? You tell me.....

Such a weak, insecure and cowardly view of the world.

If they're not ''cages''....are they perhaps PENS? ENCLOSURES? RESTRAINTS? A cage is a cage, no matter WHAT you call it! He's creating a generation of hate-fueled terrorists!
