Crying children confined like animals in dog kennels behind chicken wire, torn from their desperate parents in modern-day internment camps under the guise of so called “law,” is reminiscent of the darkest chapters in American history.
During these chapters the best Americans always understood the blatant contradiction of the so-called “law” of the day with the founding principles of the United States of America, “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
These founding principles make no distinction between US citizens and non-citizens. They did not distinguish between free and slave in the past, and they do not discriminate against the migrant today.
It is time to re-open that Golden Door!
