President Donald Trump is guilty of yet another impeachable offense.
Impeachment awaits not more evidence, investigations, hearings, or elections, but popular and political will.

It's hard to keep up with Trump's impeachable offenses, but we have a duty to keep recognizing them and demanding accountability until we tip the balance. Here's the latest.
Trump has overseen the work of his subordinates who have forcibly separated thousands of refugee children and infants from their families, imprisoned them in inhumane conditions including on military bases and in the private facilities of military contractors, denied access to these sites sought by members of Congress, failed to meet or even to plausibly attempt to meet a court-imposed deadline to reunite children with their families, and defended these policies with hate-inspiring rhetoric almost certainly resulting in additional violence and cruelty.

Trump has lawlessly engaged in an explicit effort to punish and deter people who in many cases stand accused of no legal violations themselves, and in other cases are accused of a misdemeanor. In doing so he has violated the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to which the United States is party, the Convention on the Rights of the Child to which every other nation on earth is party, the Eighth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and the Due Process clause of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
The U.S. Supreme Court has maintained that "the interest of parents in the care, custody, and control of their children is perhaps the oldest of the fundamental liberty interests recognized by [the] Court."
President Trump's subsequent Executive Order stating that families would be imprisoned as groups failed to bring him into compliance with international law or the Constitution.
Enough is enough. Click here to help sway your Congress member and their staff, and to give us the numbers of impeachment supporters with which we can help sway the media and the establishment. This is doable, but not without your help.
