I have breaking news on the family separation crisis that shakes me to my core:

Tonight, I went on MSNBC to share a bombshell revelation: a leaked memo proving that the Trump administration deliberately created the family humanitarian crisis at the border, specifically targeting children as pawns.

What we've long suspected is now clear for the world to see: the Trump Administration is purposely choosing to inflict harm on children in a misguided attempt to deter refugees from coming to America.

Their plan was fully scripted. Arresting family members who seek to sponsor the kids. Jailing children indefinitely in violation of current court orders.

It was their intention to cause as much damage as possible all along.

These are not our American values.

It's time for a great reckoning within the Trump administration, starting with Homeland Security Secretary Nielsen. She must be removed from her position immediately.

Sign the petition and tell Trump: Fire Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
