As pot is decriminalized and crime is down, prisons need more business--voila! Imprison immigrants

Very suspicious that ICE is refusing bond for undocumented immigrants who’ve built lives and families over decades and are a low flight risk.

Now we’re seeing many more heading to indefinite detention as they are caught crosses Ng the border. This isn’t about protecting borders—it’s racist for profit prison filling to make money.

This is where public pressure and media klieg lights are needed. After a big "reversal"...many could

Many could look away and say this is over.

Court battles need to be fought ASAP to gain access to the very young being held in cages and tent camps.

Both authorized and unauthorized media must continue documenting what they see. Average Americans in both GOP and Dem districts must continue to let the elected officials know this has to be remedied world th actual family reunification’s, psych evaluation of the kids, and relaxed g of enforcement on peaceful, non criminal undocumented people in this country

If top management at Twitter had souls, they would shut off Trumps's profile

Do not give his hate any platform on company severs. Fuck Trump.

Just ONCE I want to see a Trump senior staffer say in TV--fuck this noise. I'm done with Trump's shit

I could gain some measure of respect for a Trumper who’ like Saul of Tarsus saw the light on the road to Damascus and became the Apostle Paul.

Anyone who is not actively attacking and resistancing Trump at this point is a fucking traitor to the U.S. Constitution.

Just remember--Hitler and his bag of dicks lied until the end too

That hateful snake, DHS Secretary is lying about their international crimes against humanity just like all repressive and morally repugnant regimes lie.

Until they are executed or in prison.

Do NOT negotiate with terrorists. Dems tell Trump to Fuck Off

This cannot stand. Every day, Republican officials, the media, religious leaders, and Dem leadership should remind all Americans that fucktard Trump is lying and thinks these kids are subhuman and deserve incarceration or liquidation.

Do not cave on his small dick syndrome wall obsession.

Centrists are by no means even close to a threat to Democracy. Lack of centrists is

Our polarized and partisan political divide today is toxic and breeds demagogues who compete with each other to be even more extreme.

The long ago days of collegial words for
The opposition and true compromise on a broad set of
Issues happened because our country had many more moderates so that you could have long time Republicans all over Nee England and lots of Democrats elected in the Deep South.

Moderation is a good thing for stability. Moderates or centrists may be vanilla yogurt when it comes to promoting new ideas or revolutionary change, but centrism doesn’t lead to the downfall of democratic institutions.

BTW, many Liberal voices couldn’t stand Barack Obama because he was a centrist
