Our Claim Chowder is Served

Dear Leader

We sadly note that on the fourth day of the Trump Empire we called it: Concentration Camps would be in our future:

…construct and operate detention facilities near the border to make adjudicate asylum claims, subject to the availability of existing funding. [Dare we call it concentration camps?]

So with that behind us, the LATimes serves us our most bitter Claim Chowder ever:

The former Walmart that’s been converted into a migrant shelter housed 1,469 youths Wednesday, enough to fill the high-school-style cafeteria and require added cots in dorm-style bedrooms to handle the overflow.

The Casa Padre shelter in Brownsville drew national attention this month when officials refused to let U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) enter. Merkley, who had shown up at the shelter unannounced, later questioned conditions in the facility and whether the children were properly cared for.

On Wednesday, reporters were allowed to take a quick tour of the facility, run by Austin, Texas-based nonprofit Southwest Key, one of the country’s largest shelter providers for migrant children. Another tour of a Southwest Key shelter is scheduled for Friday in El Cajon, Calif.

You can spin it whatever way you want, but a concentration camp is a concentration camp is a concentration camp.

Does this mean the boxcars are next?

What have we become?

    Ive been calling and pestering and begging my Congresswoman Doris Matsui; who has living memory of internment; to step up and forcefully condemn this fuckery. Sadly, her staffers responses are that she cant go to the press because they aren’t interested, and no, she has no plans of going to the border, or forming a working group. I was told she uses social media to get the word out on her legislative action. I checked and her twitter did have A twat on the family seperation policy. It moved me not.
    If there’s space in the concentration camp for women and other space for their children, theres surely going to be space for you and i one day too.

    This isn’t a handful of children, it’s 1500 boys and young men. It breaks my heart and sets me on fire all at the same time. Speak up, speak out, call your representatives. Some things can’t wait until November. And shouldn’t.

    Because “Arbeit Macht Frei” is too old school for today’s hip with-it Republicans.

    It is a very short step from kidnapping children and putting them in tents in the desert to die and being more efficient about it and just putting them on a train for the ovens. We have become Nazi Germany.
