This Is How We Fight!

Governors are pulling their Guards from the border, refusing to spend resources and manpower on the Trumpster's monstrous border policy that punishes children and families.






This is how we fight! Keeping the pressure on and not letting up.

who still believe in America's values and better angels. This moment will define you. Or conversely, condemn you in the eyes of the world, your countrymen and history. Because . . .

This is the way we fight monsters.

It's inhumane, it's immoral and it's unjust.

The cowardly Republicans have yet to sign Feinstein's bill.

Keep fighting. This is so wrong, and so unacceptable.

Keep hitting from all sides, don't let up because what's being done in our name, on our soil is indecent and reprehensible.

Btw, where are the Girls and Infants? No excuses. No compromise.

are fuming 'cause the Gov is defying the Fraud!

Mahalo, peggysue..

Gov Cuomo's and Gov Hickenlooper's statements..



“Purposely separating children from their parents is immoral and un-American. Immigration enforcement is a necessary function of our federal government, but it is beyond comprehension that the Trump administration is using these families as pawns to deter immigration. We urge the administration to stop this cruel practice. If the White House won’t act, Congress should. No political end is worth destroying families and traumatizing children.”

Additionally, Gov. Hickenlooper sent a letter to the Congress expressing opposition to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s policy and practice of separating children from their parents when arriving at the southern border.

Think I heard/read earlier that Colorado & Oregon were bowing out as well

The more the merrier and the more effective in sending the message: we will not have our guardsmen involved in your detestable plans. Ain't playing, thank you very much!

Gov. John Hickenlooper will not send Colorado National Guard troops to the border, if asked, because of his concerns about the Trump administration’s practices of separating families.
