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.

@DebbieforFL @DWStweets @RepDMP @DonnaShalala This information came out a week ago, but it tracks with the concerns I mention upthread about "teachers" only required to be fluent in English and Spanish.

But if NO ONE at Homestead can communicate with indigenous children...

Shame on them. Shame.
@DebbieforFL @DWStweets @RepDMP @DonnaShalala My Senator's reaction. @SenJeffMerkley has been all up in the issue of prisons for children since he first tried to gain access to a Southwest Key facility in Arizona a year ago (and was denied, and raised a stink, and got people's attention.)

@DebbieforFL @DWStweets @RepDMP @DonnaShalala @SenJeffMerkley This....whooooop. This is no place for a child. I just... Thank you, for writing the article, @britsham, but man, it's a hard one to take.

This is how it started. A crushing "knowing" which tore at my comfort. A knowing that there was no going back to my humdrum law practice; that fascism was upon us. I've dedicated 8 months to this battle & there is still no light at the end of the tunnel. deandalawfirm.com
We've reunited dozens of families in the US and placed them in the care of Americans. Many are now our neighbors and citizens to be. Some are back home in the loving arms of their separated parents.
But it is not over. Th children desperately need our help. We work absolutely free of charge but need help to carry the expenses. Please help us push back against the fascist nightmare. Help us to #FreeTheChildren

This is Byron. He was separated as a result of the zero tolerance policy and has remained in detention for 7 months. He deserves a warm, loving home in which to await his case but isn't allowed. Here is our family's story: @RAICESTEXAS
We have been trying to keep things quiet while we go through this process because it is deeply personal and confusing to navigate, But our ultimate goal was to get Byron out of detention and into our home by Xmas. We have a power of attorney from his parents to care for him.
Byron is a sweet 9-year-old boy who walked over 1,600 miles from Guatemala to escape the violence and direct threats from gangs in his town. Last year, his dad was attacked by these gangs and left for dead.

A mega-thread on why you must #VoteBlueToSaveAmericanDemocracy
Midterm Elections are always a referendum on the job #POtuS is doing
So unless you are one of the willfully ignorant or only watch #FoxRussia
You must Vote for @TheDemocrats
Democrats are a "big tent" group & often our different passions conflict but we have NO room for that this year
Let's start with what America stands for-
As a democratic republic-we elect people to Congress who represent US
Did @GOP just do that with Kavanaugh confirmation?
Or did we see the raw abuse of power of #GOPCorruption where a minority of old white men not only flouted the Rule of Law & squelched @FBI from it's mission but rammed him through despite the fervent opposition of the overwhelming majority of US?

Blood red FRAUD against the black sky.

Are you feeling it, #Resistance?

Are you ready to Protest?!

Day 85 at the #KremlinAnnex begins NOW

Come to Lafayette Park! The Neverending Protest has been described as Cathartic. Group therapy. Loud!

#BeThereOrBeRedSquared
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.

#CancelTheGOP

Billions are being spent to detain immigrants. What a colossal waste on an immoral, hateful policy.

How many in the path of #Florence could that help?

"Southwest Key has received $1.39 billion..Baptist Child & Family Services has received $942 million.

How many could it have helped in #PuertoRico?

How many people complaining about jobs and the economy could've had their lives improved?

How many mass shootings could've been stopped?

How many roads and bridges could've been built?

How much could we have improved health care?
How much more secure could we have made our elections?

How many climate disasters could we have ameliorated, if not prevented?

How many people could've been retrained for better paying jobs?

Think elections don't affect you?

They do, whether you know it or not
