People are being held in cages. People whose only ‘crimes’ are to seek safety. They flee from horrible crimes and terror, only to face horrible terror. And cages. Overcrowded, reeking cages. Guarded by people who have described them as “wild ass shitbags,” “beaners” and “subhuman.” People who have joked about them dying in cages, or burning them up. People who text about wanting to “take the gloves off” before hitting a migrant with their truck.
This is disgusting, America.
I can’t begin to imagine the fear that drives people to take the enormous risk of fleeing to this country. Nor can I ever know the fear of worrying every day that you might be sent back to the very dangerous place you fled from. Or that your spouse might not come home from work. Or that your parents might not be there when you come home from school.
But, I do know that I’m not okay with putting people through this. I’m angry. So I wrote a thing. You can read it here…
