Pinch me! Is this our country?

Is Rachel Maddow’s reaction yesterday evening to Trump’s “tent city” camp for migrant kids in Tornillo, Texas. As of this months 67 children a day are removed from their parents when they seek asylum in The United States. The rate at which children are being removed and placed in camps increased from an average of 43 a day last month to 67 a day as of this month. The quote below is from a 6 year old girl from El Salvador who someone has recorded in the prison camp where children are held in cages. The temperature is 100 °F in this area right now.

People are reacting (even some republicans) and the first march took place on Father’s day and another will take place June 30th. Trump is now (again) showing his real self while his wife is joining the other living president wives in protesting the family separation policy (also called consequence-delivery-system).  It is also easy to understand why Trump is enjoying the company of dictators.
