Country consumed by hate will fall
The letter from Carl Cauch published Wednesday left me outraged. Now he wants ICE to go to schools and remove innocent illegal children from the classrooms? Doesn’t it matter to him that children are not responsible for what their parents have done? Now it is OK to terrorize children? Now it is OK for them to live in fear?
School should be a safe haven for any child. Have we lost all shame and decency? What this proposes reminds me of Nazi Germany where their citizens were required to report hiding Jews.
The claim that illegals do not assimilate is absolutely false. They are hard working people who do jobs that we are not willing to do. Agribusinesses could not survive without them. Who do you think picks our strawberries, tomatoes, lettuce, etc? Illegals are doing back-breaking work for a pittance, all for a chance to make a better life.
Quit spreading the lie that they are entitled to welfare assistance and housing. They are not, and besides, their fear of being deported keeps them from applying.
It is heartless to say illegals do not count. All humans count. I do not know what gets taught in his church, but these views certainly do not mesh with the Gospel.
No doubt we need comprehensive immigration reform. A guest worker program for our agriculture businesses makes sense.
I agree with one thing he wrote: America is going down the toilet because of the hateful division that is preached. Our country used to be better than this. We lost our moral compass.
Republicans controlled three branches of government for two years and immigration reform didn’t even make it to the floor. Nothing got done.
We are not making America great again. A country so consumed by hate will fall. I pray we are able to come together again and show the world that we have compassion and are decent people, because the world has lost faith in us, too.
