More context for our horrific treatment of children at the border: childhood trauma can lead to an average decrease in life expectancy of 20 years [1].

Five months: 700 separations [2]
Then in six weeks, ~2,000 separations…
From the @nytimes: "‘I Can’t Go Without My Son,’ a Mother Pleaded as She Was Deported to Guatemala"…
Criminal entry prosecutions are "a pretty new thing for our country—to take first-time asylum seekers who are here seeking safe refuge, to turn around and charge them with a criminal offense."…
From earlier in June:
Immigration Officials Taking Over 1,600 Beds in Federal Prison System…
Poll From@waltshaub

There are local protests over Trump treatment of border, children, per @TexasTribune

cc @waltshaub…
Is there ANYONE in the Trump Administration capable of telling the truth?
Look at this ridiculous claim by @secnielsen and then the following Sessions memo.
Sessions on new border policy and Sessions on separation…

Tweet from @kbandersen also points out the right-hand/left-hand nature of the lies in Trump Administration
"this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart."
Laura Bush in @washingtonpost
#BorderPatrol #ICE #Trump…
Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker is canceling deployment of state National Guard troops to the border "because the federal government’s current actions are resulting in the inhumane treatment of children"…
“Children shouldn’t be used as a negotiating tool."

@JebBush in @politico…
UN human rights chief to Trump:
US policy of separating children from parents is “government-sanctioned child abuse” and "violation of children’s rights and international law."…
Just when you thought the mess in Texas couldn't get worse:
Texas deputy accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting a 4-year-old girl threatened the victim's mother with deportation…
SO .... has @PressSec finally had her fill of lying for her boss? @oliverdarcy

Remember, @SecNielsen insists that there is no policy to separate children from parents while
Trump says: The Democrats made us do it.
Stephen Miller says: It's our policy to do it.
Moreover, @SecNielsen insists that “We will not apologize for the job we do.”
#Border #ICE #DHS #Trump
I am grateful to WA @GovInslee and @AGOWA for speaking out against Trump’s family separation policy

In her press conference, @SecNielsen said she "was offended by the suggestion that the administration was using the policy to send a message for asylum seekers to keep out."
BS1: Attorney General Sessions on May 8th:
"If you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you and that child will be separated from you as required by law. If you don’t like that, then don’t smuggle children over our border."…
BS2: White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly on May 18th: "separating children from parents 'could be a tough deterrent — would be a tough deterrent'.”…
More bullshit from @realDonaldTrump
Another governor steps up, this time Virginia @governorva
