Migrant family separation is wrong

Published June 18th, 2018 by Bobby Henderson

The Trump administration’s policy of separating migrant children from their parents is wrong and immoral.

Migrants arriving to the US with nothing, looking for a better life, deserve our respect and empathy. Families applying for asylum should not be treated as criminals. Of course.

It is good that some religious groups have been speaking out about this. I was impressed that the Methodists called it wrong. I agree that Jesus would be appalled.

But shame on you, the 75% of white evangelicals who continue to support this regime. You’ve shown who you are – please do not try to claim the moral high-ground again.

    Yeah, no. Enforce laws. If illegals break the law, they pay the price. They breed to try to get recognized as citizens. Kill them & the kids, or deport them all.

      Yo, we should try to be laid back about this, it’s what the Flying Spaghetti Monster would want. Also, no one ever said anything about breaking the laws, and even then, killing people just to stop them from getting across the border isn’t exactly in line with the faith either. Remember, a lack of aggression is vital in pastafarianism

    If other countries get to protect their boarders from immigrants (i.e. Israel, Russia, Ukraine, Czech, Japan) and invaders, so does America. Those people have abandoned and left their homes because living there was “too hostile”, if America ever falls to those levels, who’s to say they won’t pack up and leave here too? They are proven deserters who only care for themselves, not the country they live in nor it’s other inhabitants they seek the easy way out of all their problems and that is NOT the American way. We fight to change for what we believe in, they simply leave and desert their family, friends, and Nation.

    Lucas, spooky: that’s exactly what the Pilgrims said when they abandoned their English families.
    Remember the Alamo? The immigrants decided to stay.

    I mean how would you feel if your parents were trying to keep you alive and you got separated from them? All those poor people were being arrested for trying to not get shot to death and how can trump say that its fine to do that to people? I also agree with SillyKiwiMan

    You know who else gets separated from their kids. Every person who is taken into custody by any law enforcement entity in the country. I don’t understand how this should be an exception. It has been going on as long as I have been alive. I’m 61.

    • Captain B says:

      Bob, it’s not a criminal offense to seek migration or asylum. If it was, Mexico would be resuming Texas. The rest of the world view the USA as inflicting avoidable suffering, rationalising it using arguments such as yours. Most countries use family internment camps, which are cheaper.
      Such is the price of colonialism.
