So I felt like this needed its own title frankly because it's been upsetting me and it's just getting worst and worst. Here's the background: Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley demands answers on children detained at border Then Rep. Pramila Jayapal had a video of visiting these places today: A few of the quotes she said: "Some of [the mothers] heard their children screaming for them in the next room. Not a single one of them had been allowed to say goodbye or explain to them what was happening.” "One woman said ‘I want to be with my children’ and the Border Patrol agent said: ‘You will never see your children again. Families don’t exist here. You won’t have a family anymore.’ ” Finally, racist kelber elf announced this a few hours ago: Trump administration moves to block victims of gang violence, domestic abuse from claiming asylum I'm looking for links on how to help, but I'll be calling my democratic reps in my state cause my repug obviously doesn't care. I'm also looking for organizations and such to help as well as looking at ACLU and other involvement. It's just been truly upsetting me that this is happening especially because the children are in concentration camps and are separated by their mothers because they are brown.
The Feds are going to go for the death penalty in the case of Dlyann Roof; cnn.com/2016/05/24/us/dylann-roof-death-penalty/index.html I'm having mixed feelings about this. I don't blame the state or any of the families of the victims for wanting to fry that no good son of a bitch. But I think making him serve the rest of his life in prison - perhaps another 60 or 70 years - would be more of a punishment for him then simply executing him. Plus I worry that it'll create a martyr for the reich wingers out there who think shooting up a House of God is acceptable conduct.
