In case anyone thought their vote probably won’t matter in Texas:
"But the attorney general at the time, Jeff Sessions, made it clear what Mr. Trump wanted on a conference call later that afternoon.”
Said Sessions: “We need to take away children.”
“Rod Rosenstein, then the deputy attorney general, went even further in a second call about a week later, telling the five prosecutors that it did not matter how young the children were.”
Top department officials were “a driving force” behind President Trump’s child separation policy, a draft investigation report said.

Let's sacrifice the Far Right from government instead.
