To every MoC (or candidate!) who isn't speaking out against Trump's new family separation policy, I remind you of this quote:

“The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in times of great moral crisis preserve their neutrality.” #FamiliesBelongTogether 1/
This quote seems now to have been written specifically with Trump-era America in mind: From the #MuslimBan to taking healthcare from millions to ripping children away from parents at the border, our great moral crisis continues.

Yet, too many MoCs continue to remain silent. 2/
Still, it’s hard to imagine something any more cruel and grotesque than what the Trump White House is doing now to families at the U.S. border. 3/
Parents, who have travelled thousands of treacherous miles to get here, fleeing violence and death, driven by the love for their children and their desire to protect them, are being met by border agents only to have their children ripped from their arms. 4/
Mothers and fathers have risked everything to get here, in order to secure safety for their children—only to have our govt take everything from them. This isn’t required under the law. It's a choice this WH made in order to punish immigrants in the most painful way possible. 5/
Trump, Miller, Kelly, Sessions are using a very simple but cold-hearted equation: if immigrants and asylum seekers are driven by love for their families, then the best way to hurt them is to destroy their families. That’s their overarching immigration strategy in a nutshell. 6/
And the truth is that ICE and CBP have been implementing this horrific strategy from day one. They are going into immigrant communities, hospitals and clinics, schools, courthouses, in order to tear families apart. Every single day. 7/
You should be just as outraged by this scene of CBP (yes, CBP does this too!) arresting a mother in front of her kids as your are of the new family separation policy:

But there things that you can do to respond to this moment. One of them is to make sure that your MoCs aren’t standing on the sidelines. Check out our new resource for more info:… 9/
And check out this must-read piece by @MichelleBrane and @mjschlanger explaining what is happening:…

But the most important thing we can do to protect American communities is to make sure we win in Nov. Our best line of defense is to re-take power from Republicans in Congress who are enabling and defending all of these anti-immigrant Trump atrocities. End/
