The immorality of Trumpian immigration enforcement, continued

More of the same:

The Trump administration has said that it is considering separating parents from their children as a means of deterring other families, most of them Central American, from undertaking the perilous trip necessary to reach the United States and seek asylum. Now, without any formal announcement, that cruel practice, ruled out by previous administrations, has become increasingly common, immigrant advocacy groups say. In the nine months preceding February, government agents separated children from their parents 53 times, according to data compiled by the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service.

I outsource my commentary to one Norma Wine:

So our govt. deliberately traumatizes children already fleeing war and violence and separates them from the only source of love and safety they’ve known. Sickening.
