Starting to get some handout photos from our tour with @HHSGov.

Here’s the Trump mural I mentioned to @chrislhayes inside the shelter for incarcerated child migrants.

Also their beds and the towels they shower with.

2. Some info here, rivers.

“Kids would tell me it was an odd image to see, that it scared them. They didn't like it,” said Diana Gomez, who conducted legal screenings inside the shelter for several months in 2017.

………..

Painted by a Southwest Key employee, the mural depicts President Trump’s head floating above the White House and in front of an American flag. The mural appears at the entrance to a hallway that leads from the cafeteria to more rooms, Gomez said. While other presidents, including Barack Obama, are painted inside the hallway, each of those is accompanied by an “inspiring quote” about immigration, while Trump’s is not, Gomez said.

5. You are welcome.

Finally this is getting attention. I just hope we Dems are going to be able to right the wrong with the evil that has become the entire Republican party.
