Sunday, I sent the following rather brief and easily answered message to our Congresswoman Kristie Noem’s Rapid City and Washington, DC offices. No meaningful answer has been received, just a canned reply, and she has not signed on to the discharge petition to forcea vote—which only requires two more Republican names to bring to the floor this critical humanity issue.
While we served in the state legislature together, she may have forgotten my name just as she has forgotten what is important to caring South Dakotans.
The article below actually makes me physically ill. That a British newspaper would reveal these facts is beyond unacceptable!
It was not very long ago that Jews were put into cages. While there are not many Jews in South Dakota, there are tens of thousands ELCA Lutherans who have expressed the same disgust.
Do you support any of the immigration bills that are now being proposed in the house? If the answer is yes, please send me the specific language that refers to the elimination of separation from parents of children?
If the answer is no would you please explain to me why not?!”
It would seem to me that Ms. Noem is much more concerned with following our presidents inhumane action, to curry his favor, for some reason—or perhaps she agrees with his cruel choices.
What in the world has happened to my party nationally and, in her case, in our magnificent state in which most of us believe “under God the people rule”?
Please contact Ms. Noem’s office to urge her to take action on this important and urgent issue. You can email her through her website or call her offices at the numbers below.
