It's Not Ok
Separating kids from their parents is not ok. We have an immigration problem in my country because we have crisis in Central America — humanitarian and economic — and a leadership crisis in America. When America abdicates moral leadership the crisis in Central America becomes worse. America needs to help solve the humanitarian and economic challenges in Central America in addressing the immigration challenge at home. Only greedy cowards who are incapable of moral leadership would use children as pawns in pretending to address the immigration problem.
It needs to stop. It’s not ok. We need leaders with the courage to address difficult problems without hurting kids. Demand congressional action. Make noise. Vote.
