Kidnapper Trump as Symptom

Kidnapper Trump as Symptom

The stolen children’s whereabouts are unknown to their frantic but trapped parents. The migrant mothers and fathers face the dreadful prospect of trying to locate their sons and daughters from U.S. detention centers or from back in in the horror, destitution, and doom of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.  Imagine yourself in these parents’ shoes.

Detaining intact families for the supposed transgression of pursuing asylum is nothing to be proud of. In sarcastic words of Samantha Bee: “Yay! No more baby internment camps ― just regular internment camps…That’s what we call a win in 2018.”

The U.S. continues to conduct policies and support vicious regimes that create deadly, soul-crushing misery, oppression, and violence in Central America– this while pretending Washington has nothing to do with the terrible conditions that are pushing desperate people out of the “Northern Triangle” nations of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras (on par with the Soviet Union claiming it had nothing to with misery in Poland, Hungary, and Czechoslovakia during the Cold War).
