Panama November 2018: Customs and Immigration

I came through Customs and Immigration in Miami, and as I exited there were eight black-clad, armed ICE agents glowering at everyone. This is why I’m afraid to bring Lily and Gloria back to the U.S. for a visit, even though they have valid tourist visas good until 2023. The ethos of the Trump administration is one of bullying, of casual cruelty toward anyone who looks vulnerable, just to show dominance. I think two brown-skinned Spanish speaking women entering this country with foreign passports are inherently vulnerable.

Maybe after 2020, if the country recovers its soul.
