I have to express my sadness and anger towards the current administration approach with the immigration issue that's making headlines these last few days.
Yes, I agree that we have laws that must be followed and enforced. It's an order that if the law is broken, we must enforce them. However those illegal immigrants that have children, how do we handle those situations. We take them away from their mother's and lock them up in cages and the Border Patrol is prohibited from holding children that are crying for their mother's and the children are no more than 3-4 years old.
There's been comparison to similar events in the past but do we ever learn from the past.
The position of the administration is "very stoic," rather cold. There is no legislation that considers "Morality" or "Moral Values" of taking children away from their mother's or family!. These concerns fall into the "GRAY" areas.
So, the question is how is the United States of America any different from other countries that lock up illegal immigrants and separate their families and moms.
Ok, the provide food, shelter, laundry service but what these circumstances is pure understanding and compassion.
It's comes down to common sense which we already know the Democrats and Republicans don't have.
Everyone has an opinion of this matter and I would respect each opinion, but something must be done.
The illegal immigrants are people too. They cry, know happiness, know struggle. they love their children and families and always want to strive for a better life.
How are our relatives different from today's immigrants. Yes, they did things the right legal way, but today, governments are different now.
As a chef, I still believe we need to have a better understanding by talking to the people themselves rather than those representatives that act as their spokesman. and share bread and a meal with them.
I bet you there is not one Congressional representative that has actually met these people over a meal.
If they did its always a "photo opportunity."
