Breaking up Families

The democrats are getting traction with this issue, so it’s not going away anytime soon, but frankly, I am sick of hearing about it. Yes, children are being separated from their parents who have brought them across the border illegally, and it’s very sad, and I have sympathy and compassion for those children.

But children are being separated from their U.S. citizen parents every day here in this country. Here’s a couple that are running a thriving identity theft business out of their garage. When the police finally catch up with them and arrest them–guess what? They separate the children from their parents. Sometimes there’s another relative to take custody of the kids, but often there is not. The kids then go into the foster care system, where the treatment they receive may or may not be as compassionate and gentle as that received by those illegal immigrant children at the border.

Sometimes the children of U.S. citizens are being “ripped from their parents arms” when the parents didn’t even break any laws. Spank your child in Wal-Mart and it’s possible that DFACS will be waiting at your door when you get home. You could have your children taken from you and dropped into the foster care system just on the suspicion that you may be mistreating them.

When law-breaking moms and dads get arrested, the authorities have three choices: separate the kids from their miscreant parents, put them all in prison together or simply let the parents go, because after all, they have children, and we don’t want to separate children from their parents!  When it comes to illegal immigrants, this is obviously what is wanted by those now screaming the loudest, and it is guaranteed to boost the numbers of those sneaking into our country with their own or someone else’s children in tow. Our compassionate treatment of illegal immigrants with children is why we have so many assaulting our border now!

But with illegal immigrants, there is another choice: immediately put both parents and children back across the border and tell them to go back to where they came from. Or how about this? Build a wall to keep them from breaking into this country in the first place! You and I both know that neither of these options would be met with approval by the same people who are now screaming so loudly about the inhumanity of the Trump administration’s enforcement of our immigration laws. Why? Because their ultimate goal is not the humane treatment of children and families. It is the unending flow of cheap labor and future democrat voters.
