Tornillo is shut. What happens next:

Donald Trump's children's prison camp in Tornillo, Texas has shut down.

The Washington Post headline:

We still don't have a clear sense of where all of the kids are and if they're safe.

I'm looking into where they went. Closing Tornillo is a good step, but I'm going to make sure they didn't just shuffle these kids to another camp somewhere.

What's next for our grassroots movement? We keep fighting.

Legal asylum-seekers are still being denied their rights. Temporary prisons like those at Homestead are being expanded. The government is still shut down because Trump wants to build a racist, xenophobic border wall.

We cannot stay silent on this generational evil being committed in our names.
