This is part of a larger pattern, one made clearly visible by the imprisonment/torture of Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange while the perpetrators of the war crimes they exposed were “thanked for their service.”

As an oft-heard statement of bitter irony reminds us, “No good deed goes unpunished.” Anybody finding themselves before a Federalist Society-approved judge might do well to consider these words.

hoards of people need to be in the street banging on pots and pans and wearing protective gear.

All of this is caused by the intentional “Culture of Cruelty” that is intentional and prevalent
in the Customs and Border Protection agency (CBP). For a fuller understanding of how
this has evolved, I highly recommend reading Sand and Blood: America’s Stealth War on the Mexico Border (2019), by John Carlos Frey…The No More Deaths organization is
cited throughout the book, as are the political underpinning of these horrific policies.

Please read it to get a thorough perspective of this topic.

Personally, I feel that criminalizing and severely punishing acts of life-saving humanitarian assistance, such as those voluntarily performed by Scott Warren
and others, is an ominous signal that our nation and our culture has lost its moral
bearings, and is not what it purports to be. Shame on us.

Given that No More Deaths is a faith-based organization, Trump should be accused of making “war on religion”.
