Elon Musk weighs in on Trump's immigration policy with a very uninspiring tweet

Elon Musk weighs in on Trump's immigration policy with a very uninspiring tweetBillionaire Elon Musk has a way of kicking up a storm on Twitter from time to time, and he did it again on Tuesday morning by weighing in on Trump's widely condemned policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border.  SEE ALSO: 7 activist groups supporting families at the border that need your help right now Musk tweeted a link to the song "Shelter" by the xx and then followed that up with a rather noncommittal, "I hope the kids are okay." Shelter t.co/bLVrv0WpJb — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) June 19, 2018 I hope the kids are ok — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) June 19, 2018 The "kids" Musk is talking about became a bit more clear in subsequent tweets.   I couldn’t even keep the US in the Paris Accord, but if there is some way for me to help these kids I will do so — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) June 19, 2018 Where are they? — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) June 19, 2018 Suffice to say, no, the kids are not ok — just as some of his followers pointed out. They're very much not alright. In another tweet in the exchange, Musk — who was born in South Africa and came to the U.S. during college — says he's "enquiring on many channels" about the detainment camps. What exactly he plans to do, if anything, though isn't detailed. He did take a moment to both mention he's a top donor to the ACLU and supports their work, while pointing out that he doesn't necessarily support them on every single issue.  The ACLU confirmed that Musk is, indeed, a "top donor" but didn't offer any other details. I am one of the top donors to @ACLU — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) June 19, 2018 Just because I donate doesn’t mean I support every last thing a person or organization does, but I like all the people I’ve met from @ACLU. They really care about doing good. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) June 19, 2018 At least he's moved on from attacking the media and is using his platform to bring attention to a national crisis. But it remains to be seen if he'll take more meaningful action, like joining his followers at protest march. WATCH: A Tesla Model X just pulled a gigantic Boeing airplane like it's nothing

Screaming children heard crying for parents at US detention centre after being separated at border under Trump policy, in distressing audio recording

Screaming children heard crying for parents at US detention centre after being separated at border under Trump policy, in distressing audio recordingAs the Trump administration continues to defend its new “zero tolerance” policy on immigration, audio has reportedly revealed the cries of immigrant children hours after they are separated from their families at the US border. The audio reportedly comes from inside a US Customs and Border Protection detention facility, where migrant children are held as their parents face prosecution for crossing the border illegally. Under the Trump administration’s new zero tolerance policy, all adults caught crossing the border illegally are required to face criminal charges – a process that inevitably separates them from any children they bring with them.
