Let us examine more closely the recent controversy, of immigrant children and their parents being separated by the government, after crossing the border into the United States.
What is at issue, is that this is inhumane, they say. But there are other examples in the United States of children being separated from a parent or parents by the government and others.
#1 The Democrat party argues, that a child not yet born is not a real human being; therefore, you can kill it and remove it from the womb, as if it were an unwanted cancer. That is far far worse, than what is happening to immigrant children, but the Democrat Party does not flinch at the idea of separating unborn children from their parents via abortion. Democrats don’t seem to mind, that the unborn child experiences excrutiating pain. Think about that honestly for a while. The Democrat Party is trafficking a blatant contradiction. They want to appear compassionate; but obviously, they are as bad as brute beasts and it is only a charade. The Democrat Party is vastly inhumane without even considering immigration.
#2 Divorce is extremely common in the United States. When children are involved, the government forcefully removes the child from one of its parents via court order. If the child is not a teenager, it will most likely have no say in the process. Many many times the government puts the child with the wrong parent, and the child’s life is miserable as a result. Someone I know very well was denied custody of his children; and instead, the government gave them to the mother, who later was found to be doing meth and drinking heavily. There were very unsavory people hanging out at the house. The children desperately needed to be with the father and suffered greatly in that situation. Tens of thousands of children in the USA suffer this type of thing. The Democrat Party is not family-friendly in many ways, so it is disingenuous to pretend to have the moral high ground here.
#3 The Obama administration did similar things concerning immigration, but the Democrat Party was okay with it then. The reason they are up in arms now, is not because of compassion for those children, or they would have also been up in arms during the Obama administration. Double standard!
#4 If a social worker decides, that parents are not treating their children properly, then they can take the children from their parents. This can include, for spanking your child. Do a little research on the internet and you will find what I am saying is true. While there are cases, where removing children from parents is a good thing, there are too many examples of how this is abused. In too many instances, the child does not want to be removed from the parent. The Democrat Party is notorious for their love of socialized anything. Much of this socialized stuff is in direct contradiction of what the Holy Bible teaches.
Proverbs 13:24, “He that spares his rod hates his son, but he that loves him chastens him quickly.
It is okay to oppose the separation of immigrant children from their parents, but it would be nice to see a little consistency, instead of glaring contradictions.
