Senator Donnelly, Senator Young, Congressman Carson,
I am appalled, and morally outraged, at the treatment of immigrant families on our southern border, by the government of the United States of America. Have you, have we, forgotten that we are a nation of immigrants?
Ripping children from their parents, placing them in cages with nothing but a blanket. No toy or joy or comfort for their fears. This is the grossest of child abuse, and would be prosecuted as such in the United States of America, if the child were 'one of us.'
This administration is filled with men who are fond of quoting the Bible to justify their actions. Let us look at quotations that would be better guides to our behavior:
“And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this:‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-32
“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” John 15:12
I have always been proud to be an American; until now. I am ashamed; we should all be ashamed. We have become a nation of Christians in name only. Christ would weep at what we have become.
YOU must work to stop this. NOW.
