At the exact time Nielsen wrote this lie, a young mother was detained in Texas, her 2-year-old son ripped from her arms at the border. “This is what happens when you come to my country,” border agent told Nilda as she begged to keep them together. But @FortuneMPW is honoring her?
I just can’t believe Kirstjen Nielsen is being honored as a “powerful woman” by @FortuneMPW. She used her power to kidnap Nilda’s baby & detain her for two months w/ no information on his whereabouts. Nielsen literally tortured this family & thousands more.
Now reunited, Nilda is unfortunately 1 of more than 300k asylum seekers struggling to survive w/o resources for necessities, like food or housing #whiletheywait to find out if they’ll be allowed to stay. Visit whiletheywait.org for info on how you can donate & help.
In place of Kirstjen Nielsen, @FortuneMPW, I nominate Fiona Apple. Donated 2 years of royalties this year to pay for necessities, fees, & legal counsel for asylum seekers. “I’ve become gutted with frustration trying to figure out the best way to help.” rollingstone.com/music/music-ne…
“A lot of us want to go down & get these kids out of their cages & give them food & blankets & showers, but there’s no way to fucking get in there. If I can’t get stuff in there, at least I can try and help them get out of there.” Hero. vulture.com/2019/09/fiona-…
