America! Land of the Free. Home of the Brave
Free to practice any religion without persecution. Free to speak your mind. Free to be cohabitants and provide for your family without fear of separation. Well…recently president number 45 decided that illegal migrant families should be separated because they are illegally crossing the border. That hardly seems like a justifiable consequent for such an infraction. I guess he did not get the memo that America was built on native Americans, immigrants and slaves (those that were forced to come over and be stripped of any family ties to their place of origin). George Santayana said it best when he said that those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. #45 needs to read more history books or at least evolve into a more conscience and worldly thinker of the free world.
I am referring to the occurrences that are happening at the United States’ southern border where refugees were caught trying to illegally sneak into the country for a better way of life for their family. Some families are in detaining centers that are located in Rio Grande Valley, Texas. Additionally, more than 2,300 children are separated from their parents in this administration’s attempt to strike fear to those that were still trying to come across the border. The children were detained like criminals or like animals in a shelter. It took the public and government politics to force #45’s hand to stop the zero-tolerance policy that his administration placed in May that allowed this new form of slavery mentality of handling the offspring of the refugees. This action is one of the worse decision made from this current administration. Sadly, I am not surprised.
I would not be surprised if they were forced to find a place for the children that were separated since there was no thought into how to find their rightful parents when the media caught wind of this shameful oppressive action against human kind. The policing activities of these refugees can easily turn into a human trafficking situation. The children need to be with their parents. Enough is enough. None of these actions are justifiable by any means. This is a human civil rights issue and should not represent any part of America in 2018. I pray for protection for all in this terrible environment that is plaguing this country and intend to vote out representatives in my district that stand for such cruelty. I have no doubt that the all wrongs with be right in the near future as long as we do not get accustomed to this form of injustice against any brother or sister outside of our country. I just hope that all of mankind is really paying attention to the current state of the union. If this is what “Make America Great” means? I want no part of that.
There is nothing Brave or noble about hurting the very people who just want a better way of life like the forefathers of this country tried to established so long ago. There is no reward for separating children from his or her mommy and daddy. It is just WRONG on all levels.
Love Thy Neighbor! We are all in this together despite the divisiveness of the powers that be.
