Some unfit parents ignore the fact that they are subjecting their children to the possibility of abandonment, or becoming orphans while committing a crime in the US.

Trump is attacked viciously, although parents and traffickers are responsible, and Obama had originally put the kids in cages, ostensibly for their safety. Trump originally did want to stiffen enforcement for picayune offences.

Now Trump, with his executive order, has left them with nothing to say, except the same old phony skepticism. To detain families together likely will require amending the old law that calls for 20 days of separate holding.

Jailing children and and parents along with adult criminals will cause critics to scream. It’s reported that 0.6 percent of families also are apprehended for smuggling, with many detained.

Therefore, togetherness, without co-habitation with the riff raff will require nice garden apartments or hotel suites, financed by money dropping from the sky. Could such money fail to materialize?

Of course Trump edicts are only good until sundown. Who can predict? Complementing the fiasco are “fact-finders” and “problem-solvers” galore heading south. U.S. representatives Diana DeGette and Mike Coffman are adding their pulchritude to the border gathering.

“We can be compassionate and honor the law.” Will anyone buy that anymore, when what I suspect the real campaign, open borders, revives?

Tom Graham,
Arvada
