Rockers React: Children Being Separated From Parents at the Border
One of the definitive political stories of 2018 has been the separation of children from their parents at the Mexican border. The Trump administration’s "zero tolerance" policy to keep kids, just months old in some cases, apart from parents who crossed the U.S./Mexico border to seek asylum has been widely criticized by both Democrats and Republicans. With this story continuing to develop, we rounded up social media posts from rockers expressing their opinions on the issue.
As stories roll in about the conditions that upwards of 2,300 kids are being kept in; parents being told their children were going to be "given baths" only to not have them returned; and audio leaks of kids screaming out for their parents from inside holding cages; responses from musicians like Corey Taylor, Rise Against and Ice-T have been increasingly hostile.
