GOP Rep Wants to 'Lovingly and Compassionately' Send Children Back to the Horrific Violence They're Fleeing

GOP Rep Wants to 'Lovingly and Compassionately' Send Children Back to the Horrific Violence They're Fleeing

The Republican response to their "woman problem" has been strictly cosmetic in nature, and hinges on the assumption that if they can just express their positions in "feeling" words rather than "thinking" words, all will be right in GOP-Land. No where is this more apparent than the "emotional" support of a House Bill that will quickly deport border children right back to the violence they're fleeing.
