A beautiful day on the surface, but such a dark, dark day for Americans. Children in windowless warehouses with no access to basic necessities, trying to understand why they are there, and crying for their families, in inhumane conditions, stripped of all dignity. And all the while their asylum seeking adult family members are being vetted to ensure their application is legit. Just the fact that they even want to come here, should be proof enough of their desperation – because who the hell would voluntarily want to submit to be part of this shit show without being out of all other options??? To amplify the absurdity of it all, just consider for a moment that the people running the various Departments involved in perpetuating this ongoing tragedy, have undergone no vetting whatsoever. Sure, by apparent design, they are only “acting” Directors, but still… It makes me sick to my stomach.
Seeing animals in cages makes me ill, and hearing about the secretly ongoing practice of separating children from their families and putting them in cages is…. well, beyond gut wrenching. It’s unfathomable that – despite the administration’s assurances that these hair-raising “methods” had been abandoned a year ago – is still ongoing. I don’t like being lied to. Especially not from my elected leaders – unvetted or not. This intentional lying about heinous crimes, and separating and disposing of fellow humans, has terrifying parallels with Nazi Germany, and it scares the crap out of me. How long did the Germans believe the lies and propaganda they were fed? How long will we?
