From what I’ve seen so far at the #Texas border, there are a lot of young girls and their mothers packed into cement cell blocks. They don’t look like criminals to me, but they are definitely fleeing from criminals in their home countries.
Also saw many who slept in a cell with concrete floor under mylar blanket. Shoes still caked with mud. Doors of cells had signs with identifying characteristics like “male juvi 13 under”
My concerns about the humanitarian crisis at the border have not been alleviated. Read more about our trip here ⬇️…

Just toured Port Isabel ICE Detention Center in TX. It was horrifying, shocking & very eye-opening. Thread to follow....
We met with 20-30 women who were in hysterics & don't know where their kids are. Some had been there for over a month & haven’t had the option to see a lawyer.
One woman had her child taken on June 6. She was told it would just be for 48 hours because she was going to court. Then her child was gone. Since then she has only spoken to daughter once and doesn’t know where she is.

Walking away from the negotiating table is a mistake, taking us many steps backwards. We don’t know how North Korea could respond & given @realDonaldTrump's belligerent rhetoric, this could even escalate to a nuclear showdown.
I hope the President learned that you cannot run the country & diplomacy like a reality show. You have to prepare, talk to experts with all different points of view, and come to the table with specific goals in mind.
Now that we are in this precarious situation, I am urging @POTUS to recommit to diplomacy with North Korea and empower our State Department. A good start would be nominating an Ambassador to South Korea.
