It’s about children

Children! Children coming to our country, alone, because conditions have become too dangerous at home. Can we take that tragedy and let it rest in our human hearts?

I read in the paper how the GOP wants to change the 2008 law that was designed to protect victims of sex trafficking. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., declares that he will not give President Barack Obama a “blank check” to deal with the crisis.

Indeed, in order to get the check from Republican congressmen, there needs first to be a circumvention of the 2008 sex-trafficking law.

Children! If we can’t feel compassion for them, what hope is there?
