That's the whole point of not separating children from their parents, once ICE or border patrol separates them from the parent and takes them into custody the US government is the care taker.

 

Children are not little adults,  things can go south fast, for all the reasons listed in the article.

 

Blame the parents if you want, but the children are blameless,  they should not be damaged or abused by we the people.


But these children are still with their parents who have responsibility for them....from bringing them on a dangerous journey to monitoring their health.  They don't just suddenly get sick overnight from diseases.  If our children were getting sick we would have noted the symptoms.

It shouldn't be too hard to grasp that there is a difference when the government has total control of the health of a child vs a family.

==============================================================

The family had total control of their children's health....not our government. Not that hard to understand if you think about it.

Good argument, but I go to the ROOT cause. The stupid parent who left part of their family, Brought a pawn and let them die. Little consideration for THEIR child. I hope some of you find the money needed to fix the ills of other countries while turning your backs on your own. As for me, I plan to help those in need in this country first.

Root cause? Like the way the U.S. has spent most of the last 100 years destabiizing the entire Central and South American region in order to plunder it? The root cause that makes these people so desperate to escape their terrible situations that they walk thousands of miles hoping (foolishly, of course, given the character of our current government) to find some humanity somewhere?

 

THAT ROOT CAUSE?

 

 

 

If Americans understood the tiniest bit of their own history and how in impacts society today, we'd be a much better country. Well, and if they weren't so inclined toward bigotry, of course.

But as long as this is the legal mandate for our country, we need to follow it.  This is our current law. Conservatives seem to want to be law abiding in every other instance. Why is this situation different?

Yes, why is this situation different?  Because of the political party controlling the government?

 

If any citizen or non-citizen exposes their child to dangerous situation and the child is harmed, they would be prosecuted.  These fathers exposed their child to a dangerous journey exposing their child to hazardous conditions.  They are responsible for weakening their immune systems.

 

It is interesting to watch the way some are attempting to twist and turn this into putting the blame on the government.  Almost as if they are coming from a foreign government.

Whoever has legal custody is responsible. If the government has custody, as it did in these two cases, the government is responsible.  As simple as that. 


That sounds much like political posturing rather than legal reasons.  What you are saying is that if a person neglects a child to the point of dying, then the state takes custody and the child dies, the state is responsible.

 

In these cases a parent had physical custody, they were not separated.  They are the ones who notified authorities of the problems.  The government provided medical care when notified.

I have not seen any investigation into her death just a lot of people helping the family.  No national news of her death.

Why don't you explain that statement to us a little more thoroughly, @Soosie.

 

Do you feel discriminated against by AARP because of your race?

 

Do you feel AARP is controlled by those of ANOTHER RELIGION?

 

Please explain.
