Rep. Maxine Waters, who's been warring with President Trump in recent days after encouraging protesters to heckle and harass members of Trump's Cabinet in public spaces, just spoke at the L.A. rally, where she told the President he's gone too far with his zero-tolerance policies that led to separating families.
She continued, "You are putting them in cages. You are putting them in jails. And you think we're going to stand by and allow you to do that? I don't think so.

“You have to show up” in times like these, even if you aren’t sure it will change things, she said. “It’s about who do I want to be in these times."
Johnson told CNN she worries America is giving the next generation “a world that is terrifying,” so she is trying to teach them now to be “resilient and strong.”
