We are locking children in cages.
This isn’t the kind of thing that you can or ought to sugarcoat. You must be blunt, because this is a goddamn atrocity. We are ripping children from the hands of their parents and guardians at our nation’s southern border and locking them in cages. Here’s a tweet shared by Senator Bernie Sanders containing a video released by the federal government showing children in cages. This is the video they are okay with us seeing.
BREAKING: The U.S. government released horrifying footage of a child detention center in Texas. Together, we must defeat this inhumane and un-American action. pic.twitter.com/NGUyhQJ6TB
