CBP says they don't have capacity to deal with all the migrants.

Why, in all the Circles of Hades, are they not using it?

Why are ripped, open-sided tents being used to "shelter" people?

This was asked by the @HomelandDems during their visit a month ago & never answered.

These hearings are a good first step. We applaud the efforts of @RepZoeLofgren, @davidcicilline, @RepJayapal and others to hold the Trump administration accountable for enacting this cruel and reckless policy. But today’s hearing are not enough.
@RepZoeLofgren @davidcicilline @RepJayapal The American people deserve a full and transparent accounting of the horrors of family separation. Anything less than full disclosure by DHS dis unacceptable and should not stand.
@RepZoeLofgren @davidcicilline @RepJayapal We the people deserve to know if CBP and ICE officials have acted in any way outside of guidelines or policies meant to protect children. We implore Congress to continue to hold these agencies accountable. #FamiliesBelongTogetherAndFree

One of our attorneys, Kat Russell, is sitting in a car park outside the Pearsall Detention center waiting for Sara.

Sara is a 21 y/old indigenous Keqchi woman from Guatemala & is about to be released after 9 months.

Tomorrow she will be reunited w/her 5 y/old daughter, Alida.
Alida was released to her dad in Houston in early June but because Alida went to live with her dad, Sara lost all of the protections of the "Ms. L" lawsuit.

It meant that she was not eligible to be reunified with her daughter or even to get a new credible fear interview.
Before making the long journey to the U.S. border, Sara was brutally attacked in Guatemala on account of being an indigenous woman, and Alida witnessed much of the violence against her mom.

Blood red FRAUD against the black sky.

Live feed from @KremlinAnnex OF #KremlinAnnex Day 85 is here, if you're interested in watching from home.

"Hit the polls!" is the current chant as I type. And ya damn well better, is all I can say.

@KremlinAnnex You have to realize this is the only way to get the country right side up again, don't you?

It's #VoteThemOut.

A beautiful pic, by @ramseyfay, per usual. And the sign of the times.

1/8. As another hurricane inches closer to our shores, we've recently learned that the Trump Administration diverted $10M from FEMA so that it can hold more immigrant families in cages. #familiesbelongtogetherANDFREE washingtonpost.com/news/morning-m…
2. This is a big deal and signals what the Trump Admin cares -- and doesn't care -- about. It cares more about separating, detaining, and deporting immigrant families than it does the health and safety of our communities, than it does responding to natural disasters.
3. But it's not a surprise, nor is it unsusual. In fact, earlier this year DHS transferred an additional $200M to support Trump's mass deportation machine. @SenJeffMerkley deserves a shout out for helping to shed light on all of this.

Even as hundreds of separated children remain terrified & alone in detention, the Trump Administration is moving to try & replace family separation with indefinite family incarceration in an unacceptable bid to jail children indefinitely and subject them to more trauma and abuse.
To move this plan forward, the Trump Administration is trying to strip away existing safeguards and protections for children through a new regulation to allow for the long-term imprisonment of children in facilities with well-documented abusive conditions.
The number one priority of the Flores Settlement Agreement is that children not be incarcerated. This foundational principle, which the government agreed to in the settlement, recognizes that the best way to ensure a child’s wellbeing is to keep them out of jail.
