Who stands with a President who snatches, cages kids? Well...

So when I see a story and headline like this:
Wisconsin Republican Senate candidates Leah Vukmir and Kevin Nicholson won't criticize Trump
MILWAUKEE — Republican U.S. Senate candidates in Wisconsin stood by President Donald Trump during a Thursday debate, refusing to name anything he’s done that they oppose. 
Trump has not endorsed in the race, but both Kevin Nicholson, a management consultant, and state Sen. Leah Vukmir have tried to embrace him as polls show a strong majority of Republicans in Wisconsin back the president.
I study kids who were separated from their parents. The trauma could change their brains forever.
While hundreds are still held by our government away from their parents, traumatizing the mothers and fathers, too.

So - - not to pick on Leah Vukmir

over Kevin Nicholson, but we also know that Vukmir includes in her official biography her decades of nursing training and practice, including pediatric care, so I wonder how she can square her support for Trump with what he and his directives have done:
  • Born Milwaukee, Wisconsin, April 26, 1958; 2 children. 
  • Graduate Brookfield East High School, 1976; B.S. in Nursing, Marquette University, 1980; M.S. in Nursing, University of Wisconsin–Madison, 1983. 
  • Registered nurse with 37 years of experience including more than 20 years as a certified pediatric nurse practitioner;

President Trump signed an executive order preventing the separation of children at the border. I’m sure you had no problem standing with Obama for 8 years while thousands of children were being separated from their parents and placed in cages.
