I believe the kids and I am horrified. Stephen Miller must be fired for his immigration abuses. #DontLookAway nbcnews.com/politics/immig…
Kids unable to sleep, or lay down because no room, overcrowding. No showers. No toothpaste. Concrete floor with no mats because the kids complained about chlorine-tasting water. A 15 yr young woman old groped by border guard, sexually assaulted in front of others. This MUST STOP.
Just a note of gratitude to @jacobsoboroff and @JuliaEAinsley for their intrepid reporting of infinite horrors committed by our government against refugee KIDS. #DontLookAway #FamiliesBelongTogether #ReuniteTheFamilies

On the one hand, this article and takes from @yfreemark and others are very correct, and it's a trend I wish had been better recognized before.

But there's some technological fatalism here that doesn't recognize how Democratic strategies have helped create this alignment.
So let's start with one thing. This isn't about "coasts vs. heartland," or "economic anxiety," or any other dumb thing.

It has to do with Democratic strategists obsessed with an insanely simplistic and myopic view of the electorate and microtargetting subpopulations.
The geography to this is that the media outlets which most strongly shape political narratives are based in DC and New York, and smaller outlets with smaller budgets increasingly rely on syndicated columnists either based there or edited by them.

I AM A CHILD (Thread):

I am child
escaping harm
Wrapped in the arms of my mother
Searching for a place to belong

Our journey
full of terrors
Sacrifices she made
to flee our abusers

It took weeks to get here
there was hope in sight
Uniformed men stopped our entry
Hope denied

Just got a report that the immigrant men detained at Sheridan Federal Prison just across the fence from us are able to hear and see those of us gathered in the park, as we rally to support them. ❤️
At the end of the vigil, we all turned toward the prison where we were told the detainees were, and sang "This Land Is Your Land." We also shouted as one, "¡Estamos con Ustedes!"
The building where detainees reportedly are. You can see a guard outside.
