Several articles which show how harsh and wide-ranging Trump’s policies are:
US Border Patrol is boarding Canadian lobster fishing boats, in disputed waters claimed by Canada, and asking about illegal immigrants. Fishermen say they’ve never seen Border Patrol there before, only Coast Guard. https://t.co/YWjOkQhkwa

Unless we're rooting out Nazi war criminals, this really is crazy. And un-American. And even totalitarian. A "a de-naturalization task force" is even worse, as a matter of civil liberty, than the crisis the administration just created on the border. https://t.co/u1q20VXWkF

It’s horrific, and it’s just the beginning. The authoritarianism will accelerate now. It’s up to all of us to stand against it. https://t.co/jMb0fLvVuF

Migrant mothers at a detention center that Kirstjen Nielsen made a secret visit to were moved to a distant soccer field during Nielsen's visit, according to the Intercept.
They reportedly shouted to Nielsen for help but were too far away for her to hear. https://t.co/Scdvs79S6S

At the ICE facility I visited, I met a woman from Mexico who has lived here for 18 years. She called 911 after her husband brutally beat her. They turned her over to immigration authorities. She now fears deportation. She has 3 kids.
There should be no agency with this mission.

It seems that the GOP is so emotionally committed to keeping children in detention centers that they equate the stance of abolishing ICE with “open borders.”
Don’t let their hysteria get to you. A humane, responsible immigration system is possible. https://t.co/JOJJwraEPo
