Of course, the “moderate” Republican from Maine is totally fine with her buddy Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III and his ethnic cleansing program on a scale the nation hasn’t seen since Japanese internment.

Meanwhile, it seems that only 43 senators are so far on board, at least as of yesterday, with the Senate bill to end this horror. Which means that there are a number of Democrats unwilling to stick their necks out for basic human rights. Feinstein is right of course that Republican senators need to be pressed as well, but you’d like to think every Democrat would be pro-human rights.
UPDATE: 43 senators now support our bill to bar children from being taken from their parents at the border. We still need a Republican senator to join. If you’re represented by a Republican senator, please ask them to cosponsor S.3036. #FamiliesBelongTogether
