These atrocities are done in our name. Don't let your silence be acquiescence. Call your congress members and senators and speak out. He was just a kid, 16 years old. He should have had his entire life ahead of him.
Editor's note: Posting the video of his death was wrong without the consent of his grieving parents, and it's been removed. Apologies to Carlos's family.
NEW: The 16 year old arrived in CBP custody healthy, calm and alert according to medical reports. He died of the flu days later, after a practitioner’s advice that he should be rechecked and potentially hospitalized was ignored. H/t @propublica https://t.co/7inHI3Gp9S

Bernie Sanders called to talk. He's still spitting mad about the MLB plan to kill 42 minor league teams. As MLB and MiLB meet today, Sanders is clear: He's not looking for a compromise, with fewer dead teams. He wants MLB to kill the whole damn plan. https://t.co/6LsL0uHklf

Democrats are raising alarm about the Senate's refusal to take action on the DETER Act, a bipartisan bill that would impose sanctions on Russia if it interferes again in 2020.

NEW from me: a Democratic stalemate or brokered convention is looming as real - and if it does, Harry Reid might be the only one with the relationships to bring the factions together.
