I just watched Trump flunky DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s outrageous baldfaced lying performance excusing and justifying our inhumane, immoral and illegal actions at the border,  facing unanimous outrage (that Sarah Saunders was unwilling to do on her own). at this afternoon’s press conference.

In your name, concentration camps enacting child abuse are now active at the border. Do something.

Addendum: Glad to hear that the governors of Colorado and my state, Massachusetts (Charlie Baker, who is a Republican) have announced that they will not allow state resources to be used in support or enforcement of this policy.

    Thanks so much, Eliot! We are fighting hard for the undocumented here in Iowa, too!!!
    P.S. Mitsuo Wada and I met you at our “hotel” in Kandahar Afghanistan after your bus had overturned. Did I ever send you the (not very good) photo of you in New Delhi that I took?
