 During a conference call with reporters
 and U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw on
 Friday afternoon, government officials
 acknowledged that as many as 20
 percent of the youngest children ripped
 from their parents on Donald Trump's
 orders won't be reunified with their
 families any time soon
 The revelation comes a day after Health
 and Human Services Secretary Alex
 Azar assured the public that the
 government would meet the court's
 July 10 deadline to reunite children
 under the age of 5 with their parents,
 only to immediately backtrack

“They are arguing that they shouldnt have to reunite them with their kids” 
AND WHAT ALTERNATIVE, EXACTLY, DO YOU HAVE?


I literally just cant even keep up with every awful headline I see at this point

Even people who are naturalized citizens are at risk

And I’m hardly seeing anyone outside of news-oriented social circles talking about what may be coming in the wake of all of this

It all just keeps piling up

And more

And more

I feel like the point of no return for the initiation of a dystopian regime is far behind us and it makes me fucking sick
