I guess it’s not enough to exclusively blame undocumented workers for our dysfunctional immigration system.
Apparently, we need to take their kids too.
The New York Times reports this morning that undocumented immigrants are losing not only their freedom, but their children, who are taken away and given up for adoption after the parents are arrested, prosecuted, or deported. http://tinyurl.com/sybtr. And it appears to be happening with alarming frequency across the U.S.
Only the most rabid, hate filled restrictionist could defend separating a mother from her child.
One day, after the history of this sorry period in our nation’s immigration experience is written, we will look back in collective shame at the way we treated the undocumented. As for now, men and women of good conscience must make their voices heard.
