20. Thank you, dixiegrrrrl. And as far as AOC, she was the first

in my memory to grill a bank, back in March during the House Financial Services Committee's pattern of consumer abuses, chief executive Tim Sloan of Wells Fargo, “Why was the bank involved in the caging of children and financing the caging of children to begin with?”

"The exchange highlighted the divisiveness over the family separation policy, but also the dispute over the language used to describe the detention facilities. Government officials have previously requested the media not refer to them as 'cages.' As recently as last week, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen got into a semantic back-and-forth with members of Congress about what constitutes a cage."

Soon after and in March, "JPMorgan Chase has said it will stop financing private prisons and detention centers following protests."
