Images from MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show”, broadcast date July 2, 2019.
The reporting by Rachel Maddow and her staff has shown us, the officials who speak FOR THE AGENCY say they do not believe the conditions are as bad as reported in the media.
What will be their explanation NOW?
NOW that there is an OFFICIAL REPORT… MANDATED OVERSIGHT done on OUR BEHALF… what will they SAY?
“Personally… I don’t believe the Inspector General’s report”??
70+ people, held in rooms with a FIRE SAFETY CODE CAPACITY of 41, by LAW for no more than 72 hours…
SOME HELD FOR 40 DAYS.
With no showers. Quite literally only the SHIRT ON THEIR BACK… in a facility just down the road from a SUBURBAN TEXAS STRIP MALL, in the SUBURBS… people are being forced to live like this-
NOW is the time for ACTION.
This evening, I sent the following email to Speaker Pelosi, asking her to begin the process that will bring an END to this inhumanity. Whether we like it or NOT, we have an obligation to SPEAK OUT when we see things that are NOT RIGHT… so it won’t happen to someone ELSE.
I’ve asked the Speaker to begin the impeachment process. The leader of THIS NATION should never STAND SILENT while CHILDREN SUFFER, as Donald J. Trump has done.
… god bless this glorious nation, and guide us back to where we once belonged.
I have, just now, seen the reporting on the Inspector General’s report titled “Management Alert- DHS Needs to Address Dangerous Overcrowding and Prolonged Detention of Children and Adults in the Rio Grande Valley”.
Far be it from me, a lowly presidential candidate… an occupation of such SIGNIFICANCE, that our numbers now total almost a DIME-A-DOZEN… to tell YOU how to do your job. I have FULL CONFIDENCE in your ability to lead this nation through its most difficult hours… as do the MAJORITY of Americans.
I do not wish to assume I know everything, nor do I presume any particular outcome. But I DO wish to reach that point, where I CAN KNOW, with an elevated level of certainty and integrity, what crimes have been committed by the President of the United States and his Administration since the election of November 8, 2016.
Because those crimes, committed AFTER Donald J. Trump was ELEVATED to President-elect by THE PEOPLE, become HIGH CRIMES.
What the IG Report shows is a DIRECT PRODUCT of an INDIVIDUAL who has been implicated in crimes, surrounded by crimes, and has employed currently serving criminals.
This Administration has intentionally enforced separation of families at the border as a deterrent, to stop immigration and asylum seekers.
This Administration has IMPRISONED FAMILIES with NO CHARGES, other than one’s that are inflated and TRUMPED up.
… and, whereas he will not end this voluntarily; Speaker Pelosi, on behalf of the CHILDREN in those facilities…
Please begin the Impeachment Process.
Let us begin the process that will ultimately be used to END this madness… so we can act with the knowledge necessary to save lives NOW, and make sure this can never happen again.
Thank you for your time,
