The optics of babies/toddlers being ripped from their mothers’ arms is horrific.
I think all of us can agree that the roll out of this “zero tolerance” policy was ill timed, poorly conceived and not well planned for.
That said, these families/mothers “fleeing the savagery of their mother country “ have only their siblings/cousins/uncles/parents/grandparents to blame for their homeland’s “savagery”.
When any population tolerates criminally corrupt politicians, drug lords, gangsters, human traffickers, and does not vote in tough, strong sheriffs and pristine politicians, they have themselves to blame for the resulting “savagery “.
COSTA RICA, BELIZE, PANAMA all have good governance and their citizens are not camped out on our southern border. They have the same demographic/ethnic mix of Spanish/Aztec/Mayan, as the “failed states” to their north.
So why cannot these failed states emulate them??
Their are a multiplicity of failed states on this planet, including the ones the Supreme Court, this week, rightfully decreed should not be sending their unvetted citizens our way.
My heart bleeds for the multiple millions of “refugees”,and “asylum seekers”, whose abject MISERY knows no bounds
The abject misery of our own American homeless, and inner city slum dwellers is also abhorrent.
Let us take care of our own impoverished before flooding our land with new homeless whose countries are rife with self inflicted “savagery”.
I myself address the problem of “refugees”, by donating extremely generously to the French humanitarian group, Medicines sans Frontières —-Doctors Without Borders, who do stellar, SPLENDID , superb outreach to the disadvantaged on our planet.
