Are you as appalled as I am at the forcible removal of children from their parents at the U.S./ Mexico border? This egregious form of state sponsored child abuse tears at the very heart and soul of our nation.
Here is something we all can do in addition to calling our members of congress and petitioning: send shoes and clothing to Jeff Sessions for these children being held in kiddie concentration camps. The Border Patrol and ICE just do not have enough infant-sized orange jump suits for the more than 12,000 children being held behind bars.
Look through your closets for clothing and shoes that your children or grandchildren have outgrown. Make a visit to thrift stores or yard sales and make up a care package. Send it to the children in care of Jeff Sessions.
What if he were to receive a million packages? Or ten million? Please share widely.

Note (D. Posnett): apparently there is a rift among Repulicans with Ryan and others (?) breaking with the White House on the policy of separating kids from their parents. Where does Zeldin stand on this issue?
Zeldin’s aide told me he is not allowed to answer questions on Zeldin ‘s posititions!
He said that Zeldin would send me a letter to answer my questions concerning where he stands on separating young children from their parents enemies families seek asylum.
