When I read that ICE was arresting parents picking up their children from school, I thought that was shameful. When I read about ICE arresting people at the hospital - either patients themselves, or parents of patients, I thought that was shameful. When I read the article about ICE arresting legal residents at a restaurant after first buying breakfast, I thought that was shameful. I thought, whatever your feelings on immigration, that all these things were contrary to simple decency - and you can believe my expectations were already low considering the conditions at detention centers.

But this? This isn't shameful. It's disgusting. What an absolute breach of basic morals.

'Shameful' raid on aid camp at US-Mexico border puts lives at risk, volunteers say.

Putting people's lives at risk? That's absolutely criminal.
