a generation of children with trauma we caused. Some may eventually become part of the US. Who would want to be dealing with the extra challenges caused by this? Only the very best people.

The whole world is watching and making their own conclusions as well.

26 years ago, rethugs promised a shining city on a hill. Now they give us concentration camps for children.

trump and co. are manufacturing the terrorists that will continue to keep the military-industrial complex in business for decades to come. I'm sure it's part of their plan.

But they haven't stopped separating them and they're still detained. I wasn't suggesting they'll all be terrorists... they wouldn't all have to be. The more they lock up, the more likely it is to happen though.

And you're virtually guaranteed to run across two or three "outliers." According to the report I saw tonight on NBC Nightly News, we're holding just short of 12,000 minors in detention. One half of one percent of that number is 60. And we're on course to put another several thousand in detention. Spin the wheel enough times, and you're sure to hit the house number.

But, I suppose that little game leads to more expenditures for defense and security, which lines the pockets of many of the "right" people.
