ICE Separates 18-Month-Old From Mother for Months

Remember when your child was 18 months old? What would it feel like if someone forcibly took them from you and you didn’t see them for 2 months?

Or government is doing that right now.

Federal Agencies Lost Track of Nearly 1,500 Migrant Children Placed With Sponsors

You see the disdain for the most vulnerable people from this administration and this party in so many ways. This took my breath away.

Analysis | The group least likely to think the U.S. has a responsibility to accept refugees? Evangelicals.

People who call yourselves Christians: I have some real questions about what you all actually worship.

“Only 25 percent of evangelicals told Pew that they believed the United States has such a responsibility, half the percentage of Catholics who said the same thing and substantially lower than the religiously unaffiliated. In statistical terms, the percentage of evangelicals holding that view was about equal to the percentage of Republicans, 26 percent, given margins of error.”

And

“In October 2016, after The Washington Post published the “Access Hollywood” tape in which Trump describes groping women, the pollsters at PRRI asked Americans whether an elected official who’d committed an immoral act in their personal life could still behave ethically in office. In 2011, 30 percent of evangelicals said that he or she could, the lowest percentage of any religious group. In 2016, 72 percent of evangelicals said that the politician could do so — the highest percentage.”

So I’ll add to “Treat refugees the way you want to be treated,” (Leviticus) “Invite the stranger in” (Matthew) and “Open your door to the traveler” (Job), quoted here with the Beatitudes.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they who mourn,
for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek,
for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they shall be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful,
for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure of heart,
for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called children of God.

Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
