An hour after putting up my previous post, this story was published by the Associated Press: The Trump Administration is Holding Thousands of Migrant Kids in Mass Shelters. This is a prime example of what I was talking about.

Dr. Jack Shonkoff, who, heads Harvard University’s Center on the Developing Child said of the 14,000 migrant children separated from their parents and held in detention centers: “This is not a perplexing scientific puzzle. This is a moral disaster.”

Why aren’t more members of Congress decrying this “policy”? What happened to the “compassionate conservative?” Certainly, our two Texas Senators as well as our representatives in Congress ought to be publicly vocal against what is happening in the Texas institutions holding these adolescents. And they should be actively pursuing a more compassionate solution to this heartless problem that their President has created. There’s no way they can avoid being responsible for what is happening to these children in their state.
