Oh, my Lord!

I hope you've seen the reports from the members of Congress who visited the ICE 'prisons' along the southern boarder.

I will agree with the President Who Will Not Be Named--there is a crisis...CRISIS!...at the boarder, but it is of his own making.

People packed in cages with no fresh water, no toothbrushes, no soap, no diapers for babies, no feminine hygiene products, too little food.

The Statue of Liberty must be hanging her head and burning herself with her torch.

Congress passed a nearly $5 billion dollar bill for relieving the crisis of mistreated detained immigrants, but some Democrats did not vote for it because it was not specific enough about what the money was for--the detainees--and they feared the administration would mis-use it.

Help us Lord, make the this land of the free and the home of the brave again.

Thousands, millions are not free at the boarder, from poverty and homelessness, from too low wages, from eviction, from racism.

And few Republicans are 'brave' enough to stand up to the tyrant in the White House and do what is true and right and just.

Oh, my Lord, how did we come to this?
