Perhaps President Obama's remarks were also influenced by the 60,000+ children he was having to deal with that were sent here ALONE over long distances, over treacherous terrain, by treacherous methods by their Latin American parents.

 

 


How about all the children in rural south that were slaves, and the children bought and sold by the ruling class till the civil war ended most of it. How about the children lynched by the KKK. 


I am not sure what your post has to do with the subject and the other comments of the thread.

How about that slavery ended over 153 years ago and not pertinent to this discusson.

 

You have a number of children lynched? 


Not every where. Look out your window, and how little you know.

All we hear about is the problem on our southern boarder were children are separated from their parents for like 20 days.   Yes, this is a problem but get real. We have much worse problems in our country with legals.

 

How many children are taken away from their parents because of divorce? 

 

How many children do not have a family (single mom or single dad)?

 

How many children are taken away because their parents broke the law....if a family member does not take them in they are sent to foster home.

 

The bottom line is... 

The American Family: An Endangered and Disappearing Species

 

I have always given president Obama credit because he saw this problem and he encouraged people to stay together as a family as it brings down our crime rate and lessens dependency on government programs. 

 

 

 

 

 


Are you saying that we need to separate more children from their parents because some parents voluntarily separate themselves from their children?

 

Yes, Obama's suggestion was reasonable and could be very important to improve this country for everyone. Too bad Trump went the other way.
