The Twittersphere lit up quickly.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York City tweeted:

Jim Luce, president of both Orphans International Worldwide and The J. Luce Foundation, two charities supporting children and young global leaders, said, “I encourage all of Moral America to call the company at (844) 750-1179 and commend their employees for being among the first in the U.S. to demand an end to this Trumpian evil on our Southern border.”

He added, “These are not just American Concentration Camps for Children – they are now literally ‘Death Camps.’ The blood of innocent children is staining our Southern border, and white America does nothing because these kids are brown. But they do not cry in Spanish and they bleed red as all children.”
