      It's abhorrent.

      David Brooks says that the policy of separating children from their parents if the parents either entered the USA without a valid visa or applied for refuge after entering the USA is abhorrent.

      Saint Jude, author of the new testament letter.

      He is the patron of impossible causes because the scriptural Letter of St. Jude, which he authored, urges Christians to persevere in difficult times.

      If any parent commits a crime in the US, then their children can be removed from their care and placed in a foster home...ANY parent who commits a crime. That includes those who enter the country illegally since that is a crime.

      Still doesnt make it right and the immigration bill that is being considered in Congress addresses that very issue, thankfully. To me there is a big difference between murder and rape and just simply walking across a border seeking a better life.

      Abhorrent is a good starting point. Inhuman, barbaric and evil also come to mind.

      It is good to see a Christian response. Thanks Tigger.

      I do not know if David Brooks is a Christian, maybe he is, maybe he isn't but he can see an immoral practise as well as any Christian in this case, better than some.

      You are right brother psalms 91, it is abhorrent and worse to do that to children.

      If the parents didn't commit a crime of illegally entering a country then their children would still be with them. Why is the blame put on the country that has set up boundaries instead of the criminals?

      Maybe because our ancestors were all once immigrants and I believe that people should be treated with kindness and decency instead of a hellish response of ripping their children away from them just because they crossed a border

      My relatives came to the US using LEGAL methods. They weren't criminals trying to get away with doing something illegal.

      Who complained when children were put in foster care when Obama was president?
