As a voter in Virginia I urge U.S. Rep. Don Beyer, U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine and U.S. Sen. Mark Warner to introduce or support legislation to close down the terrible facilities on the border where kids are being kept in cages. What we are doing is criminal and a gross violation of basic human rights.
Conditions are deplorable and it sickens me that this has been going on for more than a year now. We must stop separating children from parents seeking asylum and close these facilities now! Instead, we should be caring for these families who are fleeing unsafe conditions.
