One cannot help but notice the deafening silence from many circles, as the children's death toll mounts. It's easy to say, the pro-life crowd isn't. Or, the children are brown, or they're immigrants, so they matter less to those who are usually all about protecting those Baybeez.
@ifindkarma @ImmJusticeNOW @axidentaliberal @B52Malmet @jomareewade @TrinityResists @TrisResists @JynErso_Patriot @JainaResists @funder But it's much more insidious than that. Over the past two years, trump has, in his demagoguish way--and with Stephen Miller's enthusiastic encouragement--portrayed immigrants as mattering SO much less than "real Americans," & his true believers have soaked in his bile to such...
@ifindkarma @ImmJusticeNOW @axidentaliberal @B52Malmet @jomareewade @TrinityResists @TrisResists @JynErso_Patriot @JainaResists @funder an extent they actually perceive immigrants as the "animals," "invasion," "infestation" he calls them.

Immigrants--and by extension, immigrant *children*--ARE NOT HUMAN to trump or his base. Not as human as they hold themselves. They're not real. Not PEOPLE.

They don't MATTER.

Or for them to just to shrug off any responsibility while others do the eradicating.

No outrage. No call for investigators to descend upon CBP & ICE from ANYONE on the right.

Not politicians

Not "religious" leaders

Not pundits


It's like these children's deaths are meaningless. Nothing. Unremarkable.

It makes building concentration camps acceptable. It makes releasing hundreds of people at night at bus stations, some sick, none with money, acceptable.
