National Horror Story: #KeepFamiliesTogether

Filed under: Alameda — Lauren Do @ 6:09 am


  1. Senator Diane Feinstein has put forth a clean bill to stop the policy of family separation.

    Ana Navarro a Nicaraguan-born American Republican strategist who came to this country because of political turmoil in her country, says we need to support Diane Feinstein’s bill, and I agree.

    As the numerous bills make their way thru the Senate, I’m concerned that what happened with DACA could happen to these children.

    We need a clean bill!

    • And said clean bill MUST include provisions, including funding, for immediate reunification of families. And by immediate, I mean now, instantly, post haste.

      It must also include proper & humane plan for DACA youths.

  2. Remember there are a significant number of people in this country to whom this is exactly what they wanted to hear and see and are not horrified by this..
    If Dems are dumb enough to allow this to be used as leverage then we are doomed.
    There is NO LAW that requires children to be separated from their parents at the border. Trump can undo this in a moment.

    • Indeed he can. We all know that, though most Trumpkins won’t admit it out loud. But since Il Duce* shows no sign of giving in, a bill is about all we have left.

      *I’ve been calling him Il Duce for a while, the moniker really fits his weird blend of buffoonery and fascism. But I was thinking this morning that George Wallace is probably a better inspiration for a nick name. The fervor Trump inspires in his lobotomized, grievance filled backers is eerily similar. So what y’all think? Clown Wallace? Wallace 2: Electric Boogaloo? Any other ideas?

      • sorry Dave but as a blue collar worker my entire life I tend to use as Kristen Nielsen would say “rough language”, such as “shit brain asshole”. now that is nowhere near the language this president has used in public many times. so I’m just trying to be civilized.
