Welcome to Summer Camp Kids

Chain link walls inside tin buildings are not cages the Presidential advocate says.  What they are is not really spelled out clearly.  But rest assured, the chain link rooms are not cages.

Another pipes in that what has been erected are more akin to Summer Camps, inferring a population of happy children and even happier parents who have successfully found someone to take their little ones off their hands for a brief while. The crying you might hear are cries of joy.

In the meantime, higher up the Right Wing food chain, presidential representatives claim the separation of the illegal kids from their illegal families is the Democrats' fault.  Besides, the separations are Biblically sanctioned actions, so calm down, God says its okay.

All in all, the half baked explanations and mealy mouthed excuses seem reasonable given the group they are coming from.  We should expect no less from such an upstanding group of leaders sporting such high moral principles.  Keep up the good work. I am sure the children will one day understand that the Wall was more important than their humanity.  They will then remember you fondly.

I seriously can't believe the times we are living in. I'm glad I don't have cable TV, so I don't have to see videos of this nightmare. It's enough to just read about all of it, including the outrageous apologists.

Robin - It was very scary and uncertain from 1962 through the end of the Vietnam War. 12 to 13 years of daily madness and ugliness. But the period pales compared to the period starting on 9/11 until now.

There have been other disgraceful times in America: Slavery, India/Eskimo children in Alaska taken from their families and forced into boarding schools where they were punished if they spoke their language or spoke of their gods; Japanese Americans placed into concentration camps during the Second World War; Almost half a million civilian men, women, and children incinerated with two nuclear bombs in Japan, and now we place children in concentration camps.

We hear people say: this is not the America of our forefathers.
yes it is

Mike:

It is challenging to comment on this. It is so very sad. And probably there is more to come.
