ICE lied, told flight attendants the kids were a soccer team. They weren't. Now this flight attendant won't work when the US transports children away from their parents. "I might as well have been a collaborator on their transport." houstonchronicle.com/local/gray-mat… #EndFamilySeparation
Can it happen here? Nazi historian says “the ultimate safeguard against aspiring authoritarians, and wolves of all kinds, lies in individual conscience” nybooks.com/articles/2018/… @CassSunstein
"We want no part of it" — @united Airlines CEO, saying his jetliner will not carry detainees separated from their family under the inhumane #Trump administration policy, in planning since September, which medical authorities have called child abuse. The statement:
He worked at a detention facility for little kids taken from their parents under #Trump order. One day, he was instructed to tell terrified brothers that they could not hug each other. On that day, he quit. motherjones.com/media/2018/06/… #EndSeparationNow #Recharge
At detention facility outside Houston, US officials told immigrant kids to take "vitamins." They told them they wouldn't see their parents unless they took them. They weren't vitamins. They were powerful psychiatric drugs, @reveal reports.
They were tagged, like Germans tagged Jews. Americans of Japanese ancestry were dragged from homes to US internment camps in WWII. Today #Trump signed an #ExecutiveOrder ending family separation but setting up indefinite internment camps for immigrants. (Dorothea Lange images)
ICE lied to these American Airlines flight attendants, too, and pushed past a pilot who wanted to kick them off — and stop them from taking these kids 2,000+ miles away from their parents nytimes.com/2018/06/20/nyr… #KeepFamliesTogether #EndFamilySeparation
Handcuffed. Beaten. Left nude, shivering in cells. Strapped in chairs with a bags over their heads. These are immigrant kids as young as 14 captured by ICE, mistreated in one facility, @AP reports apnews.com/afc80e51b56246…
The tech companies that express dismay at #Trump immigration policies — even as they are enabling ICE to track down, take away and indefinitely detain people under draconian "zero tolerance" initiative nbcnews.com/tech/tech-news… @oneunderscore__
Note: Facebook tried to block this incredible investigation — drugged immigrant kids in detention — by @Reveal because they thought it was "political" mashable.com/2018/06/20/fac…
They showed up by the 100s at LaGuardia Airport with a simple message: "We love you." Opponents of Trump's cruelty, they greeted the kids flying in tonight from Texas by ICE, which is still separating them 1000s of miles from their parents motherjones.com/politics/2018/… @MarkHelenowski
