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.

    Good thing that it being Trump administration policy IS A COMPLETE LIE AND COMPLETELY WRONG ON EVERY LEVEL.

    Stop spreading propaganda.

    – A lot of these people are human smugglers and criminals who are using kids as an access card, they’re not fucking parents!

    – There would be no separation if there was a wall.

    – Criminals are separated from children all the time

    – Obama separated them just the same, EVEN WORSE the way they were treated

    – CRIMINALS NOT PARENTS

    I expected better from FSM, I thought the whole point was to point out the hypocrisy within religion, instead you’re now just as hypocritical and deluded!

    Do some basic research before posting bullshit like this again.

      Yeah sure and you’re not a Russian bot. I totally believe you.

        Noodly, to spell ‘they’re and ‘you’re correctly, both in the same post, rules out an American fundie. It must be a Russian bot.

        Trump’s parents were Scottish and German immigrants; maybe Trump should now turn the Statue of Liberty to face inwards.

        Britain had quite a few Viking, Roman and Norman ‘illegal immigrants’. Of course, they deported the lot of them.

          Considering the history of humanity as it is currently known, the only people who aren’t immigrants live somewhere in Africa. Even then, populations have probably rotated around quite a bit in the past 100,000 years or so.

        • Captain Birdseye says:

          Keith, even those people who think they aren’t immigrants, such as Aboriginals and American First Nations, are immigrants. If I was forced to live in the USA, it would have to be in Brooklyn.
          I seem to remember that Africans are the only people with no Neanderthal genes, which upsets some White Supremacists.

          ‘Romans, go home. What did they ever do for us?’

    • theFewtheProudtheMarinara says:

      No, Obama did NOT routinely separate families from children. The misleading statistic that 90,000 children were detained at the border comes from the fact they were UNACCOMPANIED. Hard to separate those who aren’t together. Do some basic research yourself.

      • Captain Birdseye says:

        tFtPtP, I’m wondering what percentage of the prospective immigrants are from countries that the USA has screwed, through missionaries, DEA, CIA and unfair trade policies. People smuggling for cheap labour is as lucrative as the drug trade, which are demands from within the USA.

        Insisting that ‘The American way of life is not negotiable’ is the problem.

    Ahhh…. the deeply ironic joys of American evangelism.
    Competent researchers simply present data: numbers, percentages, ratios and sources.
    Civilised countries do not use children as leverage.
    Curiously, most of the rest of the World think that Trump’s Wall should face inwards.

    Trump is stupid. I’m a Chinese pastafarianism. Few days ago, trade war between china and USA began. Trump is a crazy and fool old goat.

    bruceo, would that stand for Tyrannosaurus Rump, an extinct, mean, fat-arsed dinosaur?
