Children shouldn’t be taken from parents


What has happened to our country?

The Trump administration is actually taking children from parents who are coming here trying to find a better life for their families. Taking these children is seen as a “negotiating tool,” to quote The Jamestown Sun of last weekend. If that happened to me or my neighbors it would be considered kidnapping, but President Trump considers it a negotiating tool. In actuality it is a cruel, inhuman and shameful thing to do. We criticize other countries’ inhumane treatment of their citizens and we are traumatizing children and their parents. Anyone who makes excuses for this policy has forgotten what our country stands for. This is a sad, sad thing and a tragedy in the “land of the free.”
