That January 28 briefing broke a streak of 40 days without a briefing. So we are talking 76 days with only 1 briefing.
FYI: The Trump admin has quietly resumed separating immigrant families at the border.
At one agency, the children were put into temporary foster care and shelters with little or no indication that they arrived at the border with their parents: propub.li/2QcsPvY
Reminder: The Trump administration is systematically locking up thousands of children at unheard of rates - now almost 15,000 are in U.S. custody.
The government classifies these children as "unaccompanied"
Thousands more kids may have been separated from their parents at the border under the Trump administration than was previously thought, according to an internal government report.
Separated immigrant families. Missing, kidnapped, caged, abused and dead children. Crimes against humanity. And the GOP support all of it.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is the actual crisis at the Southern border.

"I didn't need to do this"
Among the "innocent" people House Judiciary sent letters to:
WH rejects Elijah Cummings’ request for information about specific details about the security clearance process and Kushner’s clearance - and Cummings says he will now decide next steps. Here’s the WH letter: oversight.house.gov/sites/democrat…
Cummings: "The White House's argument defies the Constitutional separation of powers, decades of precedent before this Committee, and just plain common-sense.
The W.H. security clearance system is broken, and it needs both congressional oversight and legislative reform."
Trump reportedly pressured his then-chief of staff John Kelly and White House counsel Don McGahn to grant Ivanka Trump a security clearance against their recommendations. cnn.com/2019/03/05/pol…
Here's Ivanka Trump last month telling ABC that her father "had no involvement pertaining to my clearance or my husband's clearance." That now seems to be contradicted by new reporting from CNN.
