Kidnap: to steal a child, to seize and hold or carry off a person against that person’s will by force or fraud (Webster’s dictionary definition)
Trump’s Zero Tolerance Border Policy. Let’s call it what it is, a kidnapping of thousands. Our government, like the definition, has stolen by force or fraud, children, even babies. They simply took them away from their parent or parents. They have traumatized thousands of youngsters creating long-term harm. The younger they are the more lasting the trauma.
Those who planned, organized, carried out and continue it are criminals. They should be charged and punished. There were no Amber Alerts, neighborhood searches, radio, TV alerts asking people to join in finding the stolen child. Often these children were taken away in the dead of night. Why unless they knew what they were conducting was wrong. Simply that – a crime. What if the baby or child stolen was yours or your grandchild, or a friend’s? Would you turn away, or even worse, condone it making excuses. This criminal act is a stain on our nation, and on us. It betrays our national humanitarian values.
Detention camps for children? For babies?! For God’s sake America, wake up! Is this what we are becoming? Child abusers? Kidnappers?
