“No justice, no peace” is a motto adopted by the Black Lives Matter activist group in their quest for racial justice in the United States, but the phrase is taking on a new, very literal meaning in recent weeks as protestors enraged at the Trump administration’s appalling child separation policies have sworn to make the lives of those responsible a living hell.
Last night, protesters from the CREDO Action group assembled outside the house of Homeland Security Chief Kirstjen Nielsen in Alexandria, Virginia, and blasted her with the chilling audio of detained children crying in a detention center after being ripped away from their parents and taken away by armed men.

The activists chanted “NO JUSTICE, NO SLEEP” and “FREE THE KIDS” at Nielsen’s house and waved signs with her face on them, emblazoned with the words “BABY SNATCHER” on it.
This is the third incident of direct action in two days against two of the four people responsible for the splitting of families and the incarceration of nearly 2,000 immigrant children in concentration camp s – President Donald Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, White House racism advisor Stephen Miller and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Nielsen, whose department oversees the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and the funneling of billions of taxpayer dollars to the private prison corporations that run the immigrant concentration camps.
On Sunday, Stephen Miller thought that he’d stop for a hearty meal at swanky D.C. restaurant Espita Mezcaleria – and received a rude surprise from a patron, who yelled “Hey look guys, whoever thought we’d be in a restaurant with a real-life fascist begging [for] money for new cages?” at him.
Nielsen seemingly also found that committing crimes against humanity gave her an appetite for tacos and tried to eat at a different D.C.-area Mexican restaurant, but was interrupted by members of the Metro D.C. Democratic Socialists of America chapter and successfully driven from the restaurant in shame.
The rallying cry of the anti-Trump Resistance needs to be “Make Racists Afraid Again.” These people, who are directly responsible for the suffering of thousands of people, should never be allowed to appear in public without facing the consequences of their actions.
While we may not have much legal recourse against them, making sure they can’t go about their normal lives without having their crimes thrown in their face is the absolute least we can do – and doing so is our moral imperative.
