Kirstjen Nielsen need to be taken to The Hague

DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has resigned but she should be taken to The Hague and prosecuted for crimes against humanity. Little kids locked in cages like dogs, separated from their parents, molested, living in horrible conditions, some died, little babies bruised from sleeping on gravel. This Administration has taken folks children, some never to be seen again. If Kirstjen Nielsen is not held accountable then there is no such thing as justice and we’re not a Nation of laws. Just say white people can commit the most hideous atrocities against the vulnerable and not a damn thing will be done about it.

The United States government executed a policy of kidnapping children. At this very moment, thousands of children sit in literal cages with no idea where their parents are or if they will ever see them again.

Despite the dehumanizing rhetoric about immigrant criminals with which Donald Trump has tried to justify this unjustifiable policy, the change that created it entirely dealt with non-criminals: Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s “zero tolerance” policy, combined with a narrowing definition of asylum, meant that even families fleeing gang and domestic violence would be criminally prosecuted, and all, in a major change from the prior policy, would be incarcerated. A stunning 91 percent of parents separated from their children are only charged with misdemeanors—and some have not even been charged. To further discourage some of the world’s most vulnerable people from seeking freedom and prosperity in America, the Trump administration turned to taking children out of their parents’ arms—sometimes literally—and holding them separately from their parents.

The horrifying outcome—children in cages screaming for their parents and infants and toddlers in “tender age shelters”—represents an intentional violation of human rights. As a deterrent for the supposed crime of seeking a safer and better life, the policy violates the Eighth Amendment’s “cruel and unusual punishment” clause (even for non-citizens, as judges have ruled). One noteworthy pediatrician called the family separation policy “government-sanctioned torture of children.” Trump’s immigration policy runs afoul not only of basic decency and our own Constitution but also of international law: Meg Satterthwaite and Rebecca Riddell of Just Security write that the U.S., in its rush to inflict maximum pain on asylum seekers and their children, is violating conventions on refugees, torture, and the rights of the child.

    These Democratic women are NOT having it👏👏

    Tammy Duckworth (@SenDuckworth) Tweeted:
    Kirstjen Nielsen championed Trump Admin policies that traumatized children + ripped families apart. She was in the room when Trump labeled African nations + Haiti as “shitholes.” Had she opposed any of it, she would’ve resigned long ago. Good riddance.



  3. Kristjen Nielsen could have quit at any time. But no, she went along & separated little children from their parents and put them in cages like dogs. Predators preyed on them and molested them. Some died on her watch. She caused horrible suffering. Send her to The Hague!

    Another evil wretch departs the regime

    While I was out living life, news came in on the wires that Secretary of Allowing Child Rape Kirstjen Nielsen resigned her post as head of the Department of Homeland Security.

    I wish to express my heartfelt appreciation of Secretary Nielsen’s tenure protecting our Nation.

    Fuck you.

    Fuck you as you ripped babies from their mothers.

    Fuck you as you ripped children from their fathers.

    Fuck you as you instituted something we haven’t seen in this country since the Second World War: our own gulag for “undesirables”.

    Fuck you as you served as handmaiden to one of the most evil policies this country has ever engaged in.

    Fuck you as you justified this policy with nonsense and lies.

    Fuck you in the rest of your life as, if there is a God and She’s just, you experience not a moment’s peace.

    May your evil haunt you until you’re thrown into a hole in the ground.

    May your evil haunt you until you’re driven mad and the logical conclusion takes place.

    You’re a woman, and you tore children from women.

    You’re a human being, and you treated other human beings as if they were vermin.

    You are the perfect embodiment of this regime: heartless, cruel, concerned only with your own needs and power.

    According to Maggie Haberman’s reporting, you were feeling increasingly paranoid. Fuck you. I don’t care about your mental health. You instituted a moral evil which will take the rest of us decades to wash away, if ever.

  5. @FranTownsend says @SecNielsen served her job well. Can you believe this asinine bullshyt from Fran Townsend? This woman took children from their parents, some died, some were molested, some will never be reunited with their parents. Kirstjen Nielsen need to serve time in jail!
