they sense the cruelty or not. So, yeah, marching helps build much needed awareness.
We don't know what will happen -- at this hour -- with President
A week ago, men and women went to work at airports around the United States as they always do. They showered, got dressed, ate breakfast, perhaps dropped off their kids at school. Then they reported to their jobs as federal government employees, where, according to news reports, one of them handcuffed a 5-year-old child, separated him from his mother and detained him alone for several hours at Dulles airport.
At least one other federal employee at Dulles reportedly detained a woman who was traveling with her two children, both U.S. citizens, for 20 hours without food. A relative says the mother was handcuffed (even when she went to the bathroom) and threatened with deportation to Somalia.These and many other inhumane acts happened before these ordinary people who perpetrated them went home, had dinner, watched TV, and tucked in their kids.
Many people will say, "This is not my America." But will it be loud enough? And will the courts hear? Let's hope so.
