I live in a border state. I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.https://t.co/he1uw1E96A

You cannot apply for asylum unless you are in the US. There is no visa allowing you to enter to apply for it. You have to figure out how to get inside to apply, ie crossing the border.
She is such a liar. https://t.co/LaMx23YDfQ

It’s 2018. Germany has a woman leader who takes in refugees and the United States is being run by Nazis putting migrant children in concentration camps. It’s like we’re living in the Upside Down except it’s real.
