Listen to the Cries of Children Separated from Parents at Border

Listen to the Cries of Children Separated from Parents at Border June 19, 2018

ProPublica, the non-profit news organization that has done amazing work and won multiple Pulitzer prizes for it, has secretly obtained an audio recording from inside a detention facility holding some of those 2000 children who have been ripped from their parents’ arms at the border in the last few weeks. It is chilling.

I’ll put the recording here, but I think this could really turn the tide. The Trump administration is having a difficult enough time defending this, and Republicans in Congress are very reluctant to even try to do so. But putting real children’s voices to it makes it far more powerful. We are far more easily convinced viscerally than we are intellectually. Reading about it is one thing, hearing it for ourselves is quite another. This may be enough to force Congress to act to forbid the practice or for the Trump administration to withdraw the policy. I hope one of those things happens, and fast.
