If you don't have children of your own, I bet you have relatives who do. Look at their
faces, now imagine the look on their face when you tell them they must leave and
go with these strangers standing in front of them.

Loving a child is universal. Our country has no monopoly on love.

You send these children away because you know they could be killed walking outside the
door. Your frantic to hold on to any hope of a better life for them.

Some of us in America have an appetite for drugs countries sell. We are by far their
biggest customer for cocaine, and similar drugs. Gangs seize on  fear to take children
away and get money from the parents. These folks have an open season on assault,
rape, and murder.

Thousands of children are indeed coming to our border with Mexico, and then giving
themselves up. They WANT the border agents to catch them. Maybe now, they hope
things will be better.

Our leaders are finding ways to send these kids back to Hell. How cruel this is, should
bother anyone with a soul.

If a MILLION kids came, they should be kept through out our country. Canada, England,
France and other nations should assist with proper placement of these kids. The kids
didn't ask to go on a thousand mile trip, be assaulted, or raped.

We ALL have 'skin in the game', because we pour money into these countries when
we buy drugs. If part of sending kids away is simply a way for some monsters to
make money, we still should keep them.

Children are the same in any country, humanity demands someone love and care for them. People in California turning away helpless children should be ashamed. Yesterday,
a plane took back 15 kids age 6 months to 15 years old to Honduras. What happens to
them now? Do we care?

To be a progressive person means you care for the needy. You feed and dress them.
You find way's to keep any child from harm. All civilized nations should be helping.

Republican's in the House are gutless cowards who refuse any attempt at a reasonable
immigration policy. District's are safe now, so expect little or no help. This is one
more tool to use against  democrats and continue their racism towards our President.
I assumed children might be considered a tragedy not another Fox talking point.

Look at the children in YOUR life. Fight, e-mail, call, do all you can to stop these
children from more harm.

Has our nation turned so cruel, mean, that we don't care about children because
they are not part of the family?

Let me help you., these children ARE part of our family. Follow under the fold.

We are our brother's keeper.

-When a friend is in trouble, don't annoy
him by asking if there is anything you can do.
Think up something appropriate and do it.
-E.W. Howe

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
