Marco Rubio creates hashtag to endorse indefinite detention of children

8 monthes ago   |   By

Sen. Marco Rubio says he is opposed to President Trump's policy of separating immigrant families. He is not, however, opposed to indefinitely detaining toddlers and babies.
On Wednesday morning, Rubio coined a DetainandMaintain hashtag meant to express support for legislation that would overturn a policy that prevents children from being indefinitely detained.
Returning to a policy that only adults with children are released would create an incentive to bring kids. Yes separating families is cruel,but so is a policy that encourages parents to bring their kids on a dangerous journey...

The simple way just one Republican senator could force Trump to stop imprisoning children

The simple way just one Republican senator could force Trump to stop imprisoning children

8 monthes ago   |   By

Sen. Brian Schatz is making sense.
All it takes is one Republican to say “on judges and executive confirmations I will vote with the Democrats until this policy is reversed.”
- Brian Schatz June 20, 2018
To flesh this out a bit, the Senate is currently divided 51-49, with Republicans in the majority. As a practical matter, however, Republicans only have 50 votes because Sen. John McCain is in Arizona battling brain cancer. So for the moment, each individual Republican in the Senate wields tremendous power.
This power could be used to, say, alter the trajectory of an ongoing moral...
