Donald Trump has said he will end the policy of separating children from their parents at the border. But, come, let us admit that he may be lying. And, just as bad, we have no idea what awful policy his detestable team of idiots may come up with to take the place of mere child abuse.
That being the case, how do we deal with a situation that is already awful, and which may get worse? Fortunately, there are things you can do.
For example, you can support some of the groups that are rushing to help the immigrants right now. The magazine Mashable has an excellent article on its website, 7 activist groups supporting families at the border that need your help right now, that every committed liberal should read. It provides links to some superb organizations and many brave people who could use your help and dollars in their fight against Sessions and his thugs.
But you also need to take care of your own psyche. Watching children being torn from their parents, and listening to them weeping, can make you feel like the world simply cannot get any worse, and that there is nothing you can do about it. Ah, but, happily enough, Mashable is once more coming to the rescue, Check out this article on its website, Don’t let Trump’s policy of taking immigrant children from their parents make you feel powerless.
Definitely check it out. The piece is an excellent guide to keeping sane, and militant, in the midst of humanitarian catastrophe.
