“These children are barefoot. In diapers. Choking on Tear gas.” THE WASHINGTON POST
“A little girl from Honduras stares into the camera, her young features contorted in anguish. She’s barefoot, dusty, and clad only in a diaper and T-shirt. And she’s just had to run from clouds of choking tear gas fired across the border by U.S. agents.
“A second photograph, which also circulated widely and rapidly on social media, shows an equally anguished woman frantically trying to drag the same child and a second toddler away from the gas as it spreads.” Tim Elfrink and Fred Barbash from the POST, describing a photo by Kim Kyung Hoon/Reuters)
Gassing children…seriously? Children were left gagging with tears running down their little faces. Think of the damage that’s being done to these innocent children, both physically and psychologically. Tom Perez, DNC chair tweeted, “Shooting tear gas at children is not who we are as Americans. Seeking asylum is not a crime.” I sure as hell hope not.
Public outcry is having a little impact, but the GOP has shown time and time again that they will be complicit in anything, no matter how vile because they sure don’t want to upset Trump’s base. As for me, I’m with the Dems, holding on till January when we can control the HOUSE…and then working to make big changes in 2020. @blueravenartist
