Separating families at border is inhumane

What is the United States coming to? Separating families and placing them in separate detention facilities is inhumane.

The Trump administration is creating psychological issues for immigrant children that will last their lifetimes. For what reason? For hate. Sound familiar? What other leader separated families and placed them in detention centers? Who transported Jews, Roma and other “bad hombres?”

Trump stated “Kim Jong Un speaks and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same.”

Trump has numerous times expressed admiration for dictators such as Kim Jong Un, Vladimir Putin and Rodrigo Duterte.

These are not the beliefs for which my father fought in World War II.
