This example of not caring about children is added to domestic attitudes, where they oppose abortion, forcing mothers to have unwanted children. Then they cut off or reduce food stamps and other programs that would help the mothers take care of these children after they are born. It’s almost as if they enjoy the screams of hungry children. Perhaps it makes the Republicans feel better about their own coddled children who attend private schools and have everything they want. They profess to be Christian but ignore the injunctions to “Love your neighbor as yourself,” and “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” The government may not be the best institution to carry out these Biblical injunctions, they should at least recognize that, and say who or what will help take care of these endangered children, or at least make the case that we (our society) would like to do so, but cannot afford to.
If we cannot take these children into the US, could we at least help set up safe havens for them in their own countries where their lives would not be in danger? Could we do more to reign in the drug gangs? Could we do more to stop Americans from strengthening the drug cartels by paying them billions for the drugs?
