    Separating children from their parents. Anyone who claims to be pro-life, pro-family, etc, should be SICKENED by this.

    Last month, the administration of President Donald Trump started strictly enforcing the removal of the children of those parents and placing them in separate facilities. In some cases, they are being sent to Michigan to be handled by foster care groups like Bethany Christian Services, based in Grand Rapids.
    “These kids have been through really hell on Earth, and now they’re separated from their parents,” said Chris Palusky, CEO and President of Bethany Christian Services, which has offices across Michigan and works in 36 states.

    “They’re confused, they’re scared, and they want to be with their family. They’re acting out; they’ve been through some of the worst trauma and they’re continuing to go through more trauma because they’re separated from their family unit.”

    Separating children from their parents like this is just wrong. I understand the political calculation. But it’s still wrong.

    Where is the outrage?

    Jeff Merkley’s attempt at getting into an ICE detention center, unannounced, media stunt as it was, barely registered with the public. More elected representatives should be attempting the same thing.

    The outrage will come if photos are taken of the children and their living conditions, then released to the public.

    Whether they meant it or not, make no mistake,

    This is what so called “pro-lifers” voted for.

    I know, right? Like, what kind of parent would risk their children being stored in prisons? Besides, it is the law. Imagine that. Law enforcement.

    This is a pretty even-handed explanation of what’s happening now, vs pre-Trump.

    The kind of parent who risks it all is a parent trying to give their kid a chance.

    And anyone who stands behind this policy is a huge hypocrite. Do all lives matter or just the unborn?

    Exactly.

    When people don’t have options, or maybe they have grim options, they are going to be very highly motivated.
