Excuses, excuses

For anyone who would like to read the article and see further pictures, here is the link: https://www.politicususa.com/2019/07/02/photos-from-inside-trumps-detention-camps-show-migrants-crammed-into-cages-begging-for-help.html

I posted this in a group on Facebook. It seems Trump supporters have a million reasons this is okay. It is the fault of the parents. The immigrants are rapists, drug lords, and murders. Illegal immigrants take the jobs of American citizens, (like there are American citizens lining up to pick fruit and vegetables in the hot sun all day like these migrants do every day they can). Immigrants will work for less so American workers get paid less. It is always something to excuse the policies and practices of this administration.

I get so tired of these professed good Christians telling me this is okay and citing political reasons for why this is okay. Or, it is okay because the facilities and border control are overwhelmed. Basic humanity is suddenly not an issue for these people. Some of them I have known all my life. I cannot, no matter what I do, get my head around it. One of my Trump supporting friends asked some of us on Facebook what WE suggested. I responded by asking why should WE be the ones to figure out how to solve this humanitarian problem. Did we not elect a group of people for that very purpose? Those who know the ins and outs of Washington politics and the judicial system? Why would you ask how WE would solve the problem? WE did not create this humanitarian disaster. Nor do we have the resourcews to rectify this horrible situation.

I have even had some say the situation was overstated and not that bad. Really? Are the pictures fake? No, they are not!

Recently, monies to help with this situation were approved. Great! My question is will the money be used as intended and why did things have to get this bad before anyone tried to remedy the situation? This situation at the border is a blight upon the history of America.
