There’s no excuse for kidnapping children

Why are we receiving so little information regarding the children taken at our southern border and held in detention centers? These children were taken by the thousands with no due process, inadequate if any identification guarantees, and little or no oversight of facilities and staff. Are there enough caretakers to comfort a sick child? A child having a nightmare? Do they even speak the child’s language? Are siblings kept together?

There are people who try to excuse our behavior by saying that their parents entered our country illegally. What crime is worse than kidnapping?
