Had a very nice visit with 8 or so friends. We have a weekly coffee get together, rotating to different homes. Talking to my brother afterwards I realize that I forget not everyone has this. It’s nice to be a part of a chosen, created community of people with common interests.

Youngest migrants held in ‘tender age’ shelters

Trump administration officials have been sending babies and other young children forcibly separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border to at least three “tender age” shelters in South Texas, The Associated Press has learned.

Lawyers and medical providers who have visited the Rio Grande Valley shelters described play rooms of crying preschool-age children in crisis. The government also plans to open a fourth shelter to house hundreds of young migrant children in Houston, where city leaders denounced the move Tuesday.
