BTW: if you're looking for an easy way to help, support @CasaRubyDC with a donation. They're an extraordinary local org in D.C., run by a transgender woman of color, that's bilingual and multicultural in advocating for LGBTQ folks in the city: casaruby.org/get-involved/
Some groups do not want to unify families bc they argue it makes it easier for DJT to advance unlimited detention. This makes no sense. It also means keeping moms & children apart so they can used as pawns. We need a #SingleStagingAreaNow and then we can turn to other issues.
Ugh. @MSNBC has Trump speaking at a Heller rally in Nevada. PLEASE, MSNBC, don't constantly show his speaking events. I'm turning you off more and more. Trump shouldn't have more air time to push his propaganda.
Why would one undertake such a dangerous journey? “When you’ve got a gun to your head, people threatening to rape your daughter, extort your business, force your son to work for the cartels? What would you do?”
The NRA spent $30 million to elect Donald Trump, triple what it spent on Mitt Romney. It’s been reluctant to answer questions on whether any of it was Russian money and on its connections to wealthy Russians. vanityfair.com/news/2018/06/t…
Where do I go to report an immigrant who was working here illegally before obtaining a fraudulent visa, had an anchor baby, brought her family here through chain migration, and who's currently living in government-funded housing and receiving free government health care?
@FoxNews@VP Six ms in, the GOP tax bill is an utter flop." While the tax cuts have resulted in a surge of stock buybacks, real average hourly pay has gone down slightly since the tax bill passed. Once fully phased in, 83% of the tax cuts will go to the richest 1% thehill.com/opinion/financ… …
I rarely ask for help but I’m asking now. We need to pressure the govt to reunite families NOW by using a single staging area approach. This can be solved but they need to act immediately before time and distance permanently destroys families. Please trend #SingleStagingAreaNow
This is the letter that changed my life: an official acceptance notice from @sundancefest for Clerks. Weeks before I got this, even though the film was dead with no future, I still kept telling myself “I am a filmmaker.” Weeks after I got this, I wouldn’t be alone in that belief.
Where are these numbers coming from? Can anyone quote a source? I have never seen numbers this high, associated with boarder crossings. Maybe I have been in the dark, but to me, this seems bizarre.
However, do a quick search for jobs opening at Southwest Key. Multiple job fairs
My cousin Bree and her husband were Trump voters. These are good people - just uninformed - and love their two little kids more than anything. Today she told me they would never vote for Trump again, saying “I can’t support someone who cares so little about other people’s kids.”
Remember when I said Trump & his allies are scumbags? Trump is an immoral, indecent, & inhumane thug. He loves Putin, genuflects for Kim Jong-un, loves killer Duterte, wants to be in power for life like Pres. Xi, & is willing to sacrifice children. He needs 2B stopped. Impeach45
Trump-you traitorous, child torturing POS. You want to precipitate a Constitutional Crisis? Fire Mueller and the indictments will fall like legal mortars. Don, Jr, Ivanka, Jared, are all going down. Cohen is already under (sealed) indictment. Go for it, Bitch.
We should be boycotting any business or corporation that contributes to any GOP member of Congress or State office. This is not the America I love. It is not the America my father served to protect our freedoms. #FuckTrump
UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on World Refugee Day June 20: “II am deeply concerned to see more and more situations where refugees are not receiving the protection they need and to which they are entitled.”
I’m done going high. You know what going high gets you? Children in cages and white supremacists in the White House. So save your pretty speeches. This is a knife fight for the very existence of American democracy. Don’t like it? Go home and cry about it.
"These images are eerily reminiscent of the Japanese-American internment camps of World War II, now considered to have been one of the most shameful episodes in U.S. history," former First Lady Laura Bush wrote in an op-ed piece. nbcnews.to/2ymnbPr
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!
USA Berman: Joshua Schulte, a former employee of the CIA, allegedly used his access at the agency to transmit classified material to an outside organization. During the course of this investigation, 1/3
What’s happening to families at the border right now is a humanitarian crisis. Every parent who has ever held a child in their arms, every human being with a sense of compassion and decency, should be outraged.
BREAKING: Homeland Security Chief Kirstjen Nielsen just said “we do not apologize” for family separations at the border. Something the United Nations said will ALWAYS be a gross violation of human rights. What a sad and pathetic day for America. Brought to you by Trump & the GOP.
It’s hard to sleep knowing there are thousands of children trying to do the same alone, in cages, under tin foil blankets, and there will be more of them tomorrow night, and the next night and the next night...
This is Phebe Novakovic. She's CEO of General Dynamics, which has a lucrative contract w/ Office of Refugee Resettlement, the dept. enforcing Trump's policy of detaining children away from their parents. Her email address, from a public source, is firstname.lastname@example.org.

We need every US Congressman and Senator to come to Texas and demand entrance, along with the media. Thank you for coming, and please don’t stop just because they said no. Those children need you and your peers in Congress
Arrived in Tornillo TX where first tent city for kids has gone up. Was refused entrance by HHS. Given amount of misinformation and conflicting info coming from Trump Admin, it’s critical that Congress and American public know exactly how these children are treated by our system.
FINALLY a journalist got angry enough at the abuse that’s happening to these families seeking asylum to INSIST that @SarahHuckabee answer the question. That is her JOB. And if all the other journalists insist she answer the question Sarah sanders will have no choice. Shame Her.
