4. We need to take ownership of the language

Trump and his hell spawned minions keep talking about this as an issue of “illegal” immigration.

These people are not immigrants. They are refugees.

No one wants to use this language as refugees are treated very differently than immigrants.

Refugees, not immigrants. This is why Jeff Sessions made a point to eliminate most of the reasons he knew these refugees would use to petition for asylum.

We are are violating international law, the spirit of our own law—and all moral norms.

But Trump—well...if you haven’t heard—he’s a fascist who only hires the most irredeemable fascists.

This is a quote from Trump’s own Twitter: “These aren’t people. These are animals.” Politifact complained that the context was left out as he was ostensibly talking about MS-13. But I call BS on that. What he was doing was conflating asylum seekers as being members of MS-13...for which there is no evidence.
