Someone, please tell the president: There are humane, effective alternatives to his brutal policies. And they cost less, too.
Here's my New York Times opinion piece that went live this morning and will be in Sunday's Review. It's simple. Jailing children harms children. Even if you jail them with their parents. There are alternatives to these brutal policies. They are humane, and conform to our need and desire for law and order. And they come at a tiny fraction of the cost of locking families up. Please READ. Share. Call your representative and ask them to push for these alternatives.
