All of us have read about these moments. Some of us have even lived through them. I’m 25, so when reading American history I’ve always wondered, what would I do in one of these paradigm-shifting historical moments?You, reading this right now, are living through one of those important moments in history.The Trump administration has long eroded democratic norms, undermined the rule of law, and degraded human rights. But with this policy of prosecuting immigrant parents and ripping their children from their hands at the border is crossing a very dangerous line. Don't miss this wonderful, fact filled rundwon of this week.'

The author writes this:"I thought long and hard about what story should lead today's Rundown.Should we start with the canceled North Korea summit? Should we start with Roger Stone seeking Clinton emails from Wikileaks?"

"Should we start with the White House's effort to see classified information on an investigation the President is a subject of?

"I'll get to all that in a moment, but why don't we start with the migrant woman who was shot and killed by a border patrol agent this week? Or the immigrant children being separated from their families at the border?


"I shouldn't have to remind you of the historical parallels here... especially when Trumpquestions whether undocumented immigrants should have the right to a trial at all.

"Hopefully, these actions of the Trump administration treating Latino immigrants like animals will begin to garner as much outrage as his "animal" comments received.


"Today, President Trump said of unaccompanied minors who are crossing the border: "They look so innocent. They're not innocent." Trump said this in spite of the fact that only 56 out of 250,000 unaccompanied minors apprehended by border patrol were suspected or confirmed to have gang ties. Last week, President Trump once again conflated MS-13 with Latino immigrants, calling them "animals."


"This fear-mongering rhetoric goes back years. But this dehumanization has moved far beyond rhetoric and has gone even further than the inhumane ICE raids we've seen.

A few weeks ago, Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued an order, which DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen implemented, that requires all undocumented immigrants crossing the border be referred for criminal prosecution"including migrants seeking asylum from violence."


"The move would also mean that even if immigrants caught at the border illegally have valid asylum claims, they could still end up with federal criminal convictions on their record regardless of whether a judge eventually finds they have a right to live and stay in the US.
Many of these immigrants are seeking refuge from cruelty, only to be welcomed by cruelty."


"NBC News reported:From October 2017 to mid-April, before the new prosecution strategy officially went into effect, more than 700 children were reportedly separated from their parents at the border. The federal government has not released figures from May, but those who work on immigration cases have observed a large increase in the number of children affected.

Nogueras said he previously saw only one or two such cases a week in the McAllen courtroom in the Southern District of Texas; last week, he saw about 33 cases."
