The border crisis is unlikely to be resolved until the successful resolution of the 2020 election. The perception of the detention centers and child separation policies has slowly normalized in the eyes of the population. Resistance seems futile, and people are fatigued after years of having to care so much. It's hard. The conversation is waning, even as children die, far from their loving parents. On American Soil.

Flying the flag at half mast is a symbolic gesture, generally only afforded to the memory of great Americans, and, increasingly, to public shootings.

Flying the flag at half staff in an official capacity sends a message that California acknowledges the ongoing crisis is a human tragedy, and that those families are not forgotten. It shows that California is not going to participate in equivocating Crimes Against Humanity. It shows that California is not bowed by this federal administration's defiance of common decency, international law, and American, western morality.
