An Inhumane Policy

One of the most inhumane policies of the American government in recent years is the policy of separating young children from their parents, as they entered the country illegally across the southern border.

The government's policy, various officials explained, was aimed at preventing illegal immigration from Latin America. It was meant to deter families with children from leaving their homelands and trying to enter the U.S.

Whatever the reason, whatever the ‘benefit’ to the country, it does not diminish the fact that this is a heinous policy. You just do not separate, for any reason, young children from their parents. The wounds you leave on them will not heal in a lifetime.

As if that were not enough, the children's parents were either deported back to their countries or sent to prisons in various parts of the United States, without the authorities gathering information on where and how to find them in case they needed to contact them about their children.

Fortunately, after two years and an intervention of a bar association, a judge ruled that this policy was unconstitutional.

According to this policy, which they called a "zero tolerance policy," more than 2,800 parents were separated from their children.

Of these, the authorities did not have data on 545 parents of children, so they could not find them in order to reunite the families.

Lawyers were able to track down 75 parents, and the details of another 187 were found, but they have not been able to be reached. The remaining 283 parents (or their information) have not been found at all.

What happened is really awful, inhumane.

This country cannot act without a moral compass, without thinking that its actions affect people – most importantly, children.

And, no doubt, these actions were taken in the name of politics.

Which is even worse.


It is said that to end a war, the warring parties must first exhaust themselves.
