Sickened tonight, listening to the stories of the many people living in this state, who refuse to evacuate areas threatened by Hurricane Florence; not because they don't believe there is a danger or because they aren't terrified—
—but because they fear entering a public shelter makes them vulnerable to ICE.

This is where we are now: people would rather face the fury of a natural disaster than the cruelty of our Government, and I don't blame them.
The transfer of ten million dollars from FEMA to ICE, crystalizes this Administration's commitment to cause trauma, not help people in it—and it's a flat-out human rights disgrace.
And before you want to post some nonsense here about people like me wanting open borders or no accountability, save it.

We can have laws and systems and safeguards, but we can also have compassion and respect for humanity under duress, and seek to do no harm.
Right now, we only have a party whose sole priority is fear: creating it, perpetuating it, legislating it.

That's not a country we want our children to inherit.

If you're offended by #MichelleWolf's #WHCD remarks, but you're not offended at the genitalia-grabbing, serial liar and his cadre of predators in the White House who are making America a global punchline—it may be a case of terminal hypocrisy.
And as harsh as her comments might have been, let's not make a false equivalency here. This is the point.

Wolf saying rude things—isn't her "becoming the other side." It isn't the same as being the people in power who actually create legislation that damages people.
I wouldn't have gone there, but it's astounding that people who support this Administration can feign offense, while it does such offensive things to the people of this country. This should merit outrage.
