This whole idea that because someone crossed the border illegally they should be put in jail and be separated from their children is both morally and legally wrong.
Crossing the border illegally is a misdemeanor the first time. It is a felony thereafter. If someone is caught with their children crossing the border for a second time then I am in agreement that they should be jailed and their kids should be housed in the interim until they have their due process.
But that's not what's happening.
What's happening is a majority of them are presenting themselves for asylum and are being arrested as if they broke the law. They haven't even physically crossed the border so technically they haven't broken any law. Presenting yourself for asylum is the policy of DHS and USCBP in regards to asylum seekers so to say that they are attempting to illegally enter the country when they are following policy is not true but truth is not what this administration seeks. Advisers, namely Stephen Miller, to Trump are what is causing this. They have been pushing for this and Trump, in all his idiotic glory, finally decided to pull the trigger on the policy because border crossing numbers are waning and he has no more red meat to throw to his base so, as usual, he manufactures a crisis to divert from the Russia investigation or whatever scandal is going on that day.
Did Obama do it? Yes.
Do two wrongs make a right? No.
These kids and their parents are being used as a bargaining chip by this administration and it is morally and legally wrong yet his most ardent supporters, evangelicals, stay silent.
Since our AG thinks that the bible is the place to determine government policy these passages seems to speak to how immigrants should be treated by those that TRULY practice the faith and want favor from the creator for safe passage into heaven yet those that claim they are the faithful stray from his teachings for their own worldly desires.
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, ...
You shall allot it as an inheritance for yourselves and for the sojourners who reside among you and have had children among you. They shall be to you as native-born children of Israel. With you they shall be allotted an inheritance among the tribes of Israel.
And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: [yea, though he be] a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee.
