An Open letter to Senator Daines, Senator Tester and Representative Gianforte,
As parents and grandparents, we ask you to immediately speak out against the savage and barbaric practice of separating immigrant children from parents who are trying to enter our county. We further ask that you immediately use your offices, not just to bring a bill, but to also immediately threaten the agencies involved with future budgetary constraints.
Words fail us in condemning this horrifically destructive policy being deliberately conducted by the Attorney General with the approval of President Trump. Attorney General Sessions’ attempt to justify this by selectively quoting from the Gospels is obscene. Families and children are being broken, scarred and suffering immense anguish from this perverse policy. Enforcement of the law in no way requires this hideous practice.
The sacredness of the family and the welfare of children has been the touchstone of every decent society that has ever existed. Breaking family bonds and abusing children as a matter of policy betrays and destroys the ideals of our great country as well as the universal values of humanity.
You have the power to end this atrocity. Use it now.
