ABOVE and as The New York Times put it on May 31st.... "Two children detained by the Border Patrol in a holding cell in Nogales, Ariz. This image has been widely shared on social media in recent days, offered as an example of the Trump administration’s cruel policies toward immigrants, but in fact the picture was taken in 2014."

Iowa's Attorney General has joined US to a lawsuit that 16 other States are also filing against the President over the separation of children from their families at the border.
It is clearly a political act being done in our name.
One way we know this is that he did NOT sue President Obama for the same thing. The picture above is from the Obama era in 2014.
“The State of Iowa has a longstanding policy that favors the protection of the family unit,” Miller said in the complaint. “The State of Iowa only separates parents and children in the most exceptional of circumstances because when we do so we ‘inflict a unique deprivation of a constitutionally protected liberty interest.’”
We also know he refused to defend the State after the Governor signed the so-called Heartbeat Bill which was then challenged by the ACLU and Planned Parenthood.
So should he resign over using his office for politics rather than to do the job Iowans elected him to do?
