It appears to me that the Democrats want illegal aliens in our country to do the work that they say Americans will not do. Is that like the days when we brought in slaves to pick the cotton that the White Man would not do. I believe back then, that was called slavery. So, I guess if we pay these illegals low wages that makes it a little better than slavery?? Wow, we have come a long way haven’t we? Illegal Mexicans… the new American SLAVES!
Spot on. An integrated perspective. Facts not fiction. Thank you. Perfect forum.
Everyone has been saying for years that actions have consequences..so if you sneak in to our country the outcome may not be what you think it should be..single military moms and dads get separated from their children all the time in duty for their country .while some choose to run from their country and think America is just going to take care of them and act as if we don’t care enough about our country to just let anyone in..well the democrats certainly do not care about American citizens as 13 million American go to bed hungry each night and where is the outrage for them .or for American kids being slaughtered nightly in Chicago or any other town in the U.S..save your fake outrage for your pillow at night and go gently to sleep so you can wake up refreshed and chose new people to be outraged about today..
Thanks for a clear, brief professional analysis of the horrors of this policy. I am an old man; I have no kids; but that doesn’t mean I’m not sickened by what I see and hear. I’m also a very ashamed American. I want to protest.
So from now on I will turn on the flashers on my car whenever I’m driving as a statement of my protest. Maybe your readers will do the same. Maybe a general strike would be more effective but at least this makes protest visible.
Do you know anyone who can help promote this protest?
Your comments are partisan in nature. No one doubts that separating families is stressful. Ask the Jewish survivors of the Holocaust, slavery in any form, incarcerating mothers who are felons.etc. Does DayCare count? Nothing new here.
If you want to write a political article about the American southern boarder, find a political blog. You have many outlets at Harvard to express your concern and present your comments. The issue at hand is a political one that to some is ” Hitler” like and others a “Wag the Dog” news story.
