    Ahhh, you're doubling down on the What About the Children meme, how cute. Maybe you can get Sally Struthers to be your rep. Seriously, that's all on the host countries.

    Their parents and friends did that, along with themselves.

    Unitedwestand13...you're now aware of some of these children and their plight. If you don't do EVERYTHING in your power to improve their lives, then you're cosigning them to death.

    So you're in favor of people pushing for government policy based on their moral beliefs?

    I know the law is the law.

    But does there have to be feelings of hatred directed towards the kids who fled from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras? Is it so wrong to show a shred of sympathy to these kids?

    I think there is a very small amount of those that are upset with this that aer showing hatred directed TOWARDS the kids. There's hatred for the act, there's hatred for the seeming abeting that our government is doing in relation to the act, there's hatred perhaps for the parents who are basically leveraging their children as a betting chip to possibly get to the U.S. or who are here already and are more concerned with staying here and making their children go through the ordeal to get to them then simply going to them. But I don't think there's a lot of people actively hating the children.

    There's a large difference between directing hatred at the children...and simply disagreeing that we should go "Well ****, just come on in and stay. Who the crap cares about the logistics or legality of it".

    Though yes, more and more when people on the other side paint people who simply want "The law" as you put it enforced as singularly doing it because they "don't care about splitting up families", or suggesting it's because they're incapable of "sympathy", or assigning whatever other random negative and derogatory feature and motivation to them, then it becomes a lot more likely that the disagreement's are going to come more fervantly.
