Why Are We Separating Children from their Families?
Separating children from families is not a new atrocity. Other countries have done it, Russia, Cambodia, Germany under Hitler, and yes, even here. The United States Government allowed slave owners to tear families apart. And the US ripped Native American children from their parents and placed them in boarding schools. There they were abused, and many were killed, according to a Department of Interior report.
Recently, then-President Donald Trump ordered the separation of thousands of immigrant children at the U.S.-Mexican border. And during his phony Town Hall on CNN, he said he would do it again.
When minor immigrant children are found in the United States unaccompanied by a legal parent, the U.S. government places them in temporary housing before they are placed with American sponsors.
The New York Times published an investigative story documenting that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has lost track of 85,000 Migrant Children.
That story documents the abuse some Migrant Children are enduring.
This is the first of many stories I will write as we head into the Presidential Election.
Separating Children from their Families is one reason I will vote for President Joe Biden. We need immigration reform. And we must work together to stop Human Rights violations.
