Separating families at the border

We’ve all seen this image Mamas. I can’t stop thinking about it. It’s breaking my heart to think about women who are separated from their children. It seems so barbaric. What do you think? And are any of you doing anything to support? I feel like I want to donate or do something, but I don’t know what...feeling sad and helpless...

It absolutely breaks my heart. These families come here as a last resort because their lives are absolute hell and then we treat them like this? It's disgusting. There are organizations that collect donations for legal fees to reunite families, and some people are donating their air miles for parents to meet their kids. Other than that, I think the best thing anyone can do is to contact their government reps and voice their concerns. The more outrage, the more they will listen.

It’s exactly like what they did with residential schools. They separated the children from the parents.... there’s a similarity in this. It’s horrible and shouldn’t be happening but we are just the human cattle. The people who run this world don’t give a flying **** about the rest of the population.

This is wrong, on a lot of levels. But I’m not looking forward to my son learning about this in 8 years when they update the textbooks. How am I suppose to instill pride for his country when this is how we treat others? I mean if we’re (as in America) going to rip families apart at our southern border do we reopen Ellis Island for use again? When does it stop? The “American dream” is what made/makes America “great” right! Because it’s supposed to be where if you worked hard, made right choices, and get some luck on your side that regardless of social economic background you can have what you want. A house, a family, a private jet, whatever. But it’s ok to deny others that, even though the only thing separating you from them is that you were born into a family that was already in America....ridiculous.

Don’t you think us as Americans have enough people eating off our hard working tax payer money. We can not support another 10,000 people. Especially undocumented ones, we have enough to worry about then Mexican crossing our border. Our school are getting shoot up.

These families are trying to escape the struggles they are going through in their home country. They're most likely scared and willing to do anything to cross the boarder. It's not like they had the time to research the proper way to enter the U.S.( or even have the resources to do so ) and i hear it takes years & lots of money to become a citizen. They just want a better life for their families..Yeah there are laws in place about illegal immigration and what not but I doubt they know the laws prior to coming here. It's inhuman to treat these families in such manner. You don't know what they're trying to escape from and this adds even more trauma for the children. I cannot imagine how the kids feel being separated from their parents. Being thrown in somewhere with people they don't know or what might happen to them next. It's sad all around. 😔
