Every nation has the right to protect its borders. And, by extension every nation has the right to ensure that those who want to immigrate to that nation are doing so for the right reasons.
It’s not exactly news that the current American immigration regulations are not exactly welcoming to immigrants, especially those of color.
This morning it was reported that border agents separated an undocumented immigrant from Honduras from her infant daughter while she was breast-feeding her.
This is disgusting, this is inhuman, immoral and for lack of better word, wrong. It’s clear that the administration wants to send a message to certain people who want to come to the United States. There are other ways of broadcasting this heinous message than the current process of separating children from their parents and prosecuting the parents.
I hope you know who sleeps well tonight, those kids separated from their parents may not be sleeping so well.
