The Statue of Liberty is for ALL, not some, and this sentiment from the Acting of USCIS is shocking, revisionist, and DISGRACEFUL.
Take note, @realDonaldTrump ... CALIFORNIA: - Exceeding climate goals - GDP growth higher than US for last 7 years, balanced budget, and *HUGE* rainy day fund TRUMP ADMINISTRATION: - Recklessly rolling back US climate policies - Budget deficit of $866.8 billion
Rolling back CA’s car emissions standards will cost the US $400 billion. But that hasn’t stopped @realDonaldTrump . CA refuses to wait around & watch Trump’s admin destroy our environment & our econ. 24 governors, enviro groups & the auto industry agree.
"Please don't leave the childs with cryingness and everything...I need my dad by me." Watch this. Ask yourself what we're doing. What we're tolerating. What we stand for. There are many complicated issues we face today -- ripping kids away from their parents is not one of them.
This barely made headlines yesterday... Vulnerable children. Being forced to sleep outside. On the ground. On top of rocks. In the dirt. In CBP custody. We cannot become numb to these images. We cannot let this become the new normal.
Horrifying... Children, parents, families — many fleeing violence — being held in a parking lot under a bridge because there is no room inside CBP. This is a failure of the Trump administration. A failure of our immigration system. We have to do better.
Today, I met with a 12-year-old who was shot while in a bounce house. A grandmother mourning the loss of her 6-year-old grandson. This is America today -- the shootings continue. Loved ones are buried. Children are gunned down. And Congress does nothing.
There are no words for the cowardice of @GOP leadership right now. We should never forget their spinelessness when it mattered most.
