Sessions is Running a Torture Regime for Trump on US Soil

This is on the order (though different in forms of torture and number of people affect and NUMBER OF KIDS TORTURED) of Abu Gharib.

A man killed himself. We’re talking about a tent city FOR KIDS!

We’re lost. The monsters are in charge and running free.

Edited to add: Sessions giving his “we’re going to prosecute even if this means torturing your kids” line made me think of Angela Davis on prison abolition. Sessions isn’t a radical break from other parts of the justice system: he is part of a core, perhaps dominant, faction. These horrible things are visited selectively on US citizens. Because it’s immigration and constitutional protections are fewer and weaker, he has a bit more of a free hand. But remember that US policing and prosecution destroys families all the time.
