Mistreating children at the border is wrong

I don’t care what political party you are part of. What is going on with children being held in deplorable conditions is 100 percent wrong.

It is time everyone who has one ounce of decency in their body to take action.

I often have asked: How did Hitler get away with the Holocaust? How did we, the American people, allow the Japanese concentration camps to exist in World War II? And now, how are we allowing children to be in concentration camps? And in tent cities in the heat of the South? How does anyone think this is OK?

Contact your representative directly at house.gov/representatives. Contact information for Sen. Chuck Grassley and Sen. Joni Ernst can be found at senate.gov/senators/contact.
