Brutal, Inhumane, Unnecessary
We just acted on this a few days ago, but the DHS’s action in separating children from parents who cross the border illegally is shocking and brutal behavior on the part of a nation which considers itself to be “civilized,” and we cannot let it stand. The New Yorker recently published an article describing how this descent into barbarism came about. It’s worth reading, and shows how callousness can grow, standards can slip - until we are perpetrating acts that at one time would have been unthinkable.
