Got them from @CBP.
The first photos since zero tolerance was announced inside the largest Border Patrol processing station in US — McAllen’s Ursula.
This is where we toured today.

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

Michelle Brane, director of migrant rights at the Women's Refugee Commission, met with a 16-year-old girl at a detention facility who had been taking care of a young girl for 3 days.

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.

Evil people. Everyone involved in this administration are just plain evil. Separating children from parents and shoving them in a prison and then trying to blame the opposition party inhumane. Fuck this entire administration. Fuck Trump.
Alexa does understand a Boston accent though. Most of the time. So we got that going for us.
Oh please, please, please Canada. Do this. I mean, he’ll probably nuke you because he’s that much of a monster, but please, please do this:
Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland says she is not ruling out potential retaliatory sanctions against the Trump Organization in response to President Trump’s recently announced tariffs.
Freeland was asked by a Canadian lawmaker during a question period Tuesday whether the nation’s government has considered sanctions targeting Trump’s businesses, rather than the American people, in response to Trump’s tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, according to the Canadian magazine Maclean’s.
Freeland did not reject the idea, saying that the tariffs imposed by the Trump administration against Canada, Mexico and other nations are “illegal” and “unjustified,” according to the magazine. She also echoed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s criticism, saying Trump’s national security justification is an insult to Canadians.
“We are now in a consultation period. We welcome ideas from all Canadians on what should and what should not be in our retaliation list,” she added, according to Maclean’s.
