Trump didn’t get his border wall, but that hasn’t stopped him from building walls between children and their parents. And what’s worse, is that he is holding these children hostage in hopes of using them as a negotiation tool to force the Democrats to fund his border wall.

Separating kids from their parents under any circumstance is immoral and unAmerican. The loose Bannon (Steve), and GOP hardliners support Trump’s “zero-tolerance” policy, which is why all-of-us must strengthen our “zero-tolerance” policy for hate.
