It now appears that the Trump administration has been forcibly taking infants and toddlers from their parents and placing them in internment camps.
“Trump administration officials have been sending babies and other young children forcibly separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border to at least three “tender age” shelters in South Texas, The Associated Press has learned.
“Lawyers and medical providers who have visited the Rio Grande Valley shelters described play rooms of crying preschool-age children in crisis. The government also plans to open a fourth shelter to house hundreds of young migrant children in Houston, where city leaders denounced the move Tuesday.” AP News (7:56 am 06/20/18)
In so doing, President Trump, Attorney General Sessions and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen have deliberately and arrogantly crossed the line from immigration policy into Crimes Against Humanity.
crime a·gainst hu·man·i·ty [noun] plural noun: crimes against humanity
a deliberate act, typically as part of a systematic campaign, that causes human suffering or death on a large scale.
They have done so with the intention of forcing Democrats, elected to represent the will of the American people within their constituent districts, to comply with the administration’s immigration policies, including funding a wall on the southern border.
There is no better definition of “high crimes and misdemeanors” than Crimes Against Humanity.
In so doing, Trump and his allies have proven themselves not only racists, but fascists as well.
All Americans of any political stripe who love our country must resist with all the means we can muster.
