As the White House struggles to move past another self-imposed crisis, Democrats are fighting to ensure this one isn't quickly forgotten. Fiery Democratic leaders from Vermont to New Jersey to Texas met President Donald Trump's executive order to stop dividing immigrant families with deep skepticism, promising waves of protests, border visits and congressional oversight to shine new light on the Republican administration's immigration tactics.

"I'm still on the highest level of alert. I still think we're in a state of national crisis," New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker told The Associated Press in an interview.

Yet for all the outrage, the fallout from Trump's policy to separate children from their parents at the border — and his subsequent reversal on Wednesday — highlighted a scattershot strategy from a Democratic Party still searching for new leadership and a consistent message as the Trump presidency stretches deeper into its second year.

The kitchen-sink approach comes as Democrats work to sustain the energy of the Trump resistance heading into this fall's midterm elections when the GOP's House and Senate majorities are at stake. At the same time, the Democratic Party's most ambitious were eager to play a leading role in the high-profile immigration debate as a possible precursor to the crowded 2020 Democratic presidential primary.

Some Democrats in Congress called for Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to resign. Others railed against what they called Trump's human rights violations at the border. Liberal activists pushed forward with plans to host protests across more than 200 U.S. cities at the end of the month. And at least one Democrat, Maine Senate candidate Zak Ringelstein, was preparing to risk arrest outside a Texas detention facility to highlight the plight of young immigrants.

What do you think folks? Should President Trump continue with the “zero tolerance” policy?
