Vote for humanity


I would like to posit the question to my fellow countrymen: Who are we now?

We have certainly changed from the people who embraced the inspiring words on the Statue of Liberty: "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."

On May 4 this year, President Trump signed an order to routinely separate children from their parents, who are crossing our borders in the attempt to be free of violence and poverty.

How many photos of crying children and parents do we have to look at to be moved as human beings? This policy simply must not be supported in a "Christian nation!"

I repeat: Who are we now?

Answer this question by informing yourself and by voting for officials and the party (Democratic) that most supports the humane treatment of all human beings.
