Sarah Huckabee-Sanders on the stripping of children from their parents | Gott Mit Uns

In a rather testy exchange today reporters grilled the White House Press Secretary about the current administration's decision to move from a civil to a criminal stance regarding people crossing the US/Mexican border.  By classifying this as a crime it allows the ICE agents to separate the children from their parents.

Secular Owned businesses

I am looking for secular owned businesses. I can't seem to find anything online for anything like that. We launched Humanist One on June 1st and have put a directory listing link on it. If anyone is a secular business, please put a free listing on the site at humanistone.com. If you don't own a business (or have a product or service to sell), and know someone that does.... Please guide them to the site. Thanks, Sam
