Vermont is great. I get to see my rep @PeterWelch at the dump quite often. Today we discussed migrant children crisis over the recycling. Welch reminded me unless we #flipthehouse we can’t pass @senmerkley S3084 or @dwstweets and @repbass bills on investigating detention centers
Welch listened to my Pediatric ICU experience on how we carefully weighed each child and double checked drug calculations with a 2nd RN before administration of meds to babies/kids. And that we had a detailed medical history, allergies, conditions and monitored for side effects.
Welch visited the detention centers in Texas with his friend @SenMerkley and was also forbidden was access. This horror will continue unless we keep yelling about it and making it impossible for members to continue on in peace. Are your senators cosponsors of S 3084 and S 2849?

Genocide does not require death.

Genocide is defined in many ways.

“Causing severe mental and physical harm to the group is genocide”

“Forcibly transferring the children of one group to another group is genocide”

Hey 🇺🇸 We are engaged in genocide.
Untrained, unlicensed personnel giving anti psychotic drugs to migrant babies and toddlers in detention centers will cause deaths.

➡️No medical history
➡️No allergy history
➡️No experience medicating children
➡️No experience monitoring for side effects

Babies and toddlers require, REQUIRE love ❤️ to survive.

Babies and toddlers who are not held and touched fail to thrive.

Babies simply can’t go for days and months at a time without love.

Science and common humanity tells us babies will die in these genocide centers.

What keeps me up? Babies and toddlers and children being given heavy duty antipsychotic drugs without monitoring by licensed personnel. We all know they don’t have nurses caring for caged migrant babies.
Deaths are inevitable.
This is genocide by the US government.
When kids are drugged they don’t eat. When babies are drugged they don’t drink. When drugs are given by unlicensed personnel kids die. Our government is committing genocide. And they are planning to continue genocide on a massive scale. #babyjails
When kids are drugged they aren’t learning. When babies are drugged they aren’t developing. When antipsychotics are given en masse to a pediatric population some percentage of that population will react very badly and may even die. Our country is committing genocide.

Good morning.
Yesterday sucked.
What did you do?
Did you take the punch in the #KennedyRetirement and call it a day?
Did you rage about it here or IRL?
That here is no right answer,
There is a WRONG answer.

Good morning.
If you had the luxury to turn of the internet and not feel the impact of yesterday, fortunate.
But if you can live in a regime targeting people who don’t get a break and go “I need a break..."
Are you okay with that?
I’’m not.

Good morning.
What did you do last night?
I picked up dinner hearing Trumpers end zone dance over #SCOTUS.
And #TrumpConcentrationCamps.
And #BabyJails
And a million other things I disagree with.
It sucked.
I just wanted dinner.

I'm one of a few million Americans awake when we should be sleeping because of the pain of #cancer or some other chronic illness.

Adding to our sleeplessness is knowing #healthcare is under threat. We may not be able to afford it due to the #GOP's actions.

It's terrorizing.
My parents were Civil Rights workers. My father was a Freedom Rider. As a small child I was taught the legacy of #MLK.
I watched people invoking MLK on Monday. Not in defense of #votingrights or in outrage over how the #SCOTUS ruled on two pivotal cases on gerrymandering.

MLK wasn't being invoked for #votingrights but for Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who lies to America every day about policies that could very well kill me & others.

Policies that are hurting millions.

Policies that have kept me a citizen without equal rights in my own country.

Let’s say I owned a restaurant. “Steve’s International House of Pancakes and/or Burgers.”
Here’s how I’d handle things.
1) Come in wearing your MAGA hat? Welcome. Sit. Enjoy a pancake or a burger. I might not LIKE your hat but I can judge that in the privacy of my own mind.

There is a chance I might put on my 2008 “Obama” shirt (it’s shrunk a little, I’ve grown a little) out of my own pettiness, but you’d be served with great service. Also: If anybody who worked at my "IHOP and/or IHOb” was a jerk to you, I’d have a problem with that. But...

…if you were crappy to one of my hypothetical employees because of race/creed/faith? If you picked fights with other customers because of theirs? You can leave. And if somebody filmed you being terrible? Thems the breaks. That seems fair, right #PermitPatty? /3

The #babyjails are bad. It's really bad. We know how overwhelming this all is, watching what Trump and the Republicans are doing to purposely hurt these children, our country - the world. But we can't give up. We have to continue to #resist.

If you can do nothing else, then just get the word out. Peer pressure and public outcry WORK.

So, every horrible thing they do or say, call them out.

Every protest or vigil in response, retweet it and share it widely.

The next easiest thing to do is call congress. Daily.

Tell Senators to support bill s.3036 the #KeepFamiliesTogetherAct

Tell House Reps to support H.R.6135

If they support these already or not. CALL.

The conversation is not about border safety. It is about child abuse. It is not about immigration. It is about torture. Torture of mothers having their babies ripped off their breasts. I feel very strongly that the sick af fake POTUS actually loves that we’re upset. (1)
Tomorrow night Donald will be in Minnesota at a political rally getting his cult energized over his zero tolerance policy. He actually said today “You have to take the children away.”
This is NOT a winning issue like he thinks #TakeAKnee is. It’s about little kids. #BabyJails (2)
This is a crucial moment for our country. If we don’t all raise our voices and get loud, Putin’s plan installing a greedy, cruel nitwit will crush our souls completely. (3)

As a fmr immigration attorney let me be unambiguously clear. Crossing a boarder to claim asylum is *not* a crime; no under US or international law. Any child separated from a parent under that pretext is done so in direct contravention to the laws of the USA. ⚖ THREAD Pls RT.
If you came to the US without permission to apply for asylum, youmetjod of entry, whether legal or illegal *should* in no way effect your application process. Illegal entry is not a ground of inadmissibility for asylum applicants.
Unlike many other categories of applicants for immigration benefits, ppl seeking asylum in the US are not barred by having made an illegal entry; for example, sneaked across the U.S. border or overstaying a valid visa (one of the top ways people are in the country illegall).
