Before you go on about “Should we just open all borders and forget the laws?!” Here’s my reply: I haven't seen anyone suggest that we should let anyone and everyone in. What I've seen is people saying that families should be kept together, that children shouldn't be used as bargaining chips so Trump gets his wall, and that the trauma that these children and parents are experiencing will be with them for the rest of their lives, which is compounded by the trauma they've experienced before they ever left their home countries and started on the dangerous and difficult journey here.
Also, treating people this way is a really great way to grow terrorists, so if you're concerned about personal safety and terrorism, you should be concerned about these children. #daughterofanimmigrant #laws #ethics #humanity
