The Nation: What Senator Jeff Merkley Saw at an Immigrant Detention Center for Children
“The tiniest kid at the front of the line, he was knee-high to a grasshopper. He was 4, maybe 5 years old.”
This story hasn’t gotten enough attention over the last 24 hours. When you see the conditions Senator Jeff Merkley witnessed here, it’s hard to believe this is happening in the United States.
It’s been 3 days since I visited the border. THANK YOU to everyone who has made their voice heard about @realDonaldTrump’s horrific child-snatching policy. But our work isn’t done. Next up, I’m calling for Congressional hearings into the matter, and I need your help.
