1. The US held a record number of migrant children in custody in 2019.
2. Hate crimes hit a 16-year high in 2018.
3. One of the president’s senior advisors is an avowed white supremacist.
this has me screaming into my pillow this week. it is not accidental that these date points/stories are part of the 45th adminstration's "work."
Devin Nunes: “By undermining the president... the elements of the FBI, the Department of Justice and now the State Department have lost the confidence of millions of Americans… It will take years… to restore faith in these institutions."
(eyes decades of gerrymandering and voter suppression.)
45 is terrible. TERRIBLE. but what enrages me is how the GOP has sold out any shred of patriotism using this administration to advance racism, nationalism and greed in ways i did not think i'd see in my lifetime. i'd like every one of them to go to the hell they imagine.
i can not look at this bit of news without thinking of boxcars lined up to carry these innocent souls off to ... nowhere good.
this is criminal.
