I am deeply ashamed to be a US American right now.
What a terrible nation this is to imprison Russian dissenters who are simply trying to exercise their right (under International & US law) to seek asylum. Shameful.
Thousands of Russians are crossing the U.S. southern border to claim asylum. Many are ending up in immigration prison. “I left Russia for a place just like Russia,” said one.
