The U.S. is ripping families apart….

June 16, 2018

For the short attention span sound-bite generation it definitely sounds like the current administration is doing horrible things to illegal immigrant families, but not to the rest of us who have a brain because we see what the headline truly represents. Yes the U.S. is separating children from their parents just like we do with children of any American who commits a crime and endangers the welfare of a child.

One would think you do not bring you children with you when you are going to commit a crime but every month thousands of people cross our borders illegally committing a crime and therefore putting their children at risk. So rather than lock the children up in a regular jail with their parents they are separated and placed in ‘protective custody’ for their safety…

or would you rather that the
children be placed in a regular jail cell
with their
criminal parents?

    “Short attention span, sound bite generation” is right! They watch fake news and believe it all. Jump on the bandwagon without the facts and never look into it further. Come to this country legally. Why is that such a problem? Come here to make a better life for yourselves and everyone else.

    It isn’t lost on me, or others willing to examine a situation with some analytical thought, that progressives are just fine with the ‘nanny state’ taking children from American families who may believe in somewhat more stringent punishments than what the current ‘pop-science’ endorses. The hypocrisy of any of the extremist groups, be they right or left, is like a bottomless, never-ending sinkhole!

    From the pics of the facilities, I’d say looks like more of the “crumbs” Pelosi was talking about when she referenced the bonuses employees were given & the business expansions made because of the tax cuts. Pretty nice crumbs if you ask me.

    Damn. You are a heartless group.

    I may be a simpleton, but the words of Jesus tend to be my guide in these cases: do unto others as you would have them do to you. Meaning, that if someone is suffering, put yourself in their shoes. If you were so desperate that you had to risk your life and the lives of your children to hop the border, what might you do? And would you want your children taken from you? Ever? Under any circumstance?

    Pete says, “Yes the U.S. is separating children from their parents just like we do with children of any American who commits a crime and endangers the welfare of a child.”

    Anytime we break up families, this is a grievous evil, my friend. It isn’t something to be treated lightly. Even evangelical Christian groups (who normally support Trump without question) have stood up against the evil of separating families.

      You bring up a valid point Jonathan about ‘breaking up families not being treated lightly’.
      I do not think anyone ‘in this group’ treats that lightly
      what we are saying is we are treating the children of illegals
      equally/no differently than anyone that commits a crime and has a family,
      yet the media makes the actions of not placing the children in the same jail as their parents appear to be cruel just to inflame the public.

      I believe there is something in the Bible about being ‘non-judgmental’..?

    This post and the comments are about as depressing and cruel as any I have read. And, btw, the definition of cruel is “willfully causing pain or suffering to others, or feeling no concern about it; causing pain or suffering.” No judgement here. Just an overwhelming feeling of sadness that people who themselves, or their families, were once immigrants and/or people seeking asylum, can’t find it in their hearts to see the cruelty in “tender age” camps. In an overwhelmingly Caucasian world, America has consistently done the wrong thing when it comes to human rights.

      unalaska, I welcome your view and know it is shared by many
      but I believe the last sentence in your comment addresses where your mindset is, by saying ” In an overwhelmingly Caucasian world, America has consistently done the wrong thing when it comes to human rights.”

      In fact color has absolutely nothing to do with the struggle to enforce immigration laws. When as you said my family came to America they were forced to follow certain existing laws before they were allowed in.

      But they and millions of others both black and white did follow the laws of this nation when they entered and the results once they entered was that they did not look for hand outs and became valuable assets to the nation.

      I am sorry if you think we should have an open border where everyone can come to the US and receive free healthcare and food that even our own citizens do not get for free and where even the holding cells where they were held was better than what they had as homes back in the country they came from.

        I think you hit on the differences between the Trump/Republican mindset and the rest of the nation. 1) We don’t see an immigration crisis of the proportion that would justify cruelty toward other human beings. We ask for proof of gangs of roving “Mexican rapists” rather than simply reacting to whatever people shout out on Twitter. 2) What we do see, when digging deeper, is a lot of policies from the United States government that helped bankrupt small farmers. We see that the U.S. drug habit has provided a market that has allowed cartels to grow strong. We see United States corporations pushing native folks off of their land to make way for factories.

        So we don’t accept an immigration crisis without substantial proof, nor do we assume that everyone trying to get in is an “animal” or an “infestation” as Trump calls them. We start with the dignity of human life as a principle that grounds us and keeps us from perpetuating cruelty simply as a means to a greater end. This isn’t to say that we are self-righteous or anything. Affirming the worth of a human life should be sort of a base line of human decency.

    Pete you’re more patient with the BS than I. Bless your heart man
