first_imgMany changes are needed in our immigration laws. But we’re disgusted, ashamed and horrified by the actions taken by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in the treatment of families who have applied for refugee status at our southern border. These are people (not animals) who are fleeing intolerable and unsafe conditions in their own countries. It’s our understanding that the procedure is to house them in detention centers (prisons) while their refugee status is verified by a slow-moving court system. Because children aren’t supposed to be held in a prison, they’re forcibly taken from their parents and moved thousands of miles and placed in foster homes with no contact with their parents. Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion This is the deliberate and stated policy of the Trump administration to discourage immigration. It has been reported that the government has lost track of at least 1,500 of these children after placement in foster homes. How does this increase our security? As these kids grow up, will they not be embittered and want to strike out at the country that made them orphans?The words on the Statue of Liberty are: “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”Why haven’t all of us called for an end to this inhumane process?
