Richmond! My neighbor found this sad kitten alone under her porch last night, and she brought said kitten to us for temporary housing.
Kitten has been bathed, flea combed, and has taken to nursing from a syringe. She likes to explore corners.
Responsible parties who offer a permanent home to this sad kitten will no longer be called “kittenless fools” by me or others. Think about it. PM me.
Recent evidence suggests that the [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] is enforcing quotas. Earlier this week, NPR reported on a policy called the “detention bed mandate,” which requires 250 facilities across the country to fill a total of 34,000 beds per day with detained immigrants. And in leaked internal memos earlier this year, an ICE official chided an Atlanta field office for low deportation numbers:

When we’re done entertaining
go on a hunger strike
to oppose hunger strikes
we’ll write poetry in their blood
