Thread about Puerto Rico and Hurricane Maria.

Here’s more on the tariffs from NPR and a more in-depth explanation from marketplace radio

#EndFamilySeparation  I can’t believe that @#$32ing Roseanne pushed this off the front pages of both Huffington Post and CNN.  5 articles on Roseanne and ZERO on how we’ve been tearing children away from their parents all week.  Here’s some papers with more journalistic integrity.  SacBee asks if ICE agents will be able to live with what they’re doing to children.  The Hill notes that “whatever” isn’t an option for immigrant children.  Rollingstone notes that if you voted for Trump, you voted for the separation of children and families.  These are people.  These are children.  This is inhumane and un-American.

Here’s some suggestions from Cool Mom Picks about what you can do to helpMiser mom has a copy of the letter she sent to her representatives.  And remember that often has scripts and phone numbers to help you figure out how you can #resist.

    Thanks for the link!

    The situation with the children and the parents at the border is so infuriating. Thanks for the information on how to take action.

      It is horrifying, and what’s even worse is that the mainstream media is more interested in celebrities calling each other out than covering people being hurt. Did we slip into Japanese Internment via Joan Crawford and Bette Davis or the De Havilland sisters swiping at each other?

      Though arguably separating children from their families is getting even closer to Nazi Germany. This is NOT RIGHT. This is the beginning of the “First they came for” poem. We must speak up.

    Thank you for Tiny Kittens. They have been and are so much help with the current era.
    Calling thanks as well to teresa who responded so helpfully to my question of yesterday. Clearly a bite here, a nibble there, soon the whole pie will be back in the 1920s.
    What is happening to children separated from their parents at the border is worse than what happens to foster children across this nation. There a some really wonderful foster parents but there are LOTS that aren’t good. The separated children are not going to licensed trained foster families. The results are going to be terrible over time. And the current government’s attitude is that this does not matter because they are not citizens and have no rights….. and they certainly are not Ivanka’s children or Ms. DeVos’s/Mr Kelly’s grandchildren so who will care? Please keep speaking up for these children; they are human children with human attachments, needs, fears, there is no visitation or contact with their parents/families and many do not even have language and are old enough to remember their own names…………. These are the disappeared in our nation.
