Yeah, they didn't let the press into Auschwitz either

Lawmakers banned from talking to detained migrant kids
Lawmakers are now banned from speaking with migrant children who are held at detention centers after being separated from their parents, according to a new Department of Heath and Human Services (HHS) directive sent to congressional offices on Wednesday.
The directive also states that lawmakers must give two weeks' notice before traveling to an immigrant detention center. They will be barred from entering if they do not give the advanced notice.

They're hiding something, this won't end well.

Sure children were taken from their parents, kept in cages, given powerful drugs, and beaten while in handcuffs, but it’s not like anything horrible was done to them like when Michelle Obama suggested they should eat a carrot now and then.- OhNoSheTwint

My God, Has GITMO Taken Over This Detention Center?
 Immigrant children as young as 14 housed at a juvenile detention center in Virginia say they were beaten while handcuffed and locked up for long periods in solitary confinement, left nude and shivering in concrete cells... court filings that include a half-dozen sworn statements from Latino teens jailed there for months or years. Multiple detainees say the guards stripped them of their clothes and strapped them to chairs with bags placed over their heads.

Trump ended the child kidnapping policy he had started; and he hasn't been this proud of himself since he brought us back from the brink of nuclear war with North Korea, which he had brought us to. - John Fugelsang

Is Cohen Doing A Flip With A Twist?
Michael Cohen, President Trump’s longtime confidant and former personal attorney, has resigned from his post as deputy finance chair of the Republican National Committee's Finance Committee...Cohen also criticized the administration's policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the southern border...“While I strongly support measures that will secure our porous borders, children should never be used as bargaining chips."

This isn't my Republican Party, dammit. I belong to the party of Joe McCarthy, the John Birch Society, Barry Goldwater, Nixon's Southern Strategy, Ronald Reagan's "welfare queen" talking points, George W. Bush's Iraq invasion, and John McCain's pick of Sarah Palin. Trump is NOT my ...

  1. The horse is an AkelTeke, one of the foundation breeds of the modern thoroughbred. The metallic color is from a gene that is rare in other breeds, but often found in that one. Metallic black is pretty spectacular. It pops up in metallic copper colors in some thoroughbreds, but is unusual.
