  1. How cruel! It’s hard to watch this administration’s continued lack of humanity in dealing with this issue. To separate parents from their children to punish the parent for illegally crossing the border is inhumane.

    It harkens back to the days of slavery when children were taken from their mothers and sold on the auction block sometimes to punish the mother for not following her master’s orders. The threat of separating the children from the mother was a southern plantation tool used to “control the slave”.

  2. Shout out to Jill Stein et al. Thanks again for being so uncompromising.

  3. So if an adult with children breaks the law and earns a spot in jail, the adult’s children should accompany the parent to jail?

    • so Jack does this mean you are in favor of separating mothers from thier children when they cross the border, that is the question here.

      • Jack is in favor of any law or policy that will only affect others, never him.

        Examples include:

        -His forebears came here with no immigration laws at all, but newcomers of different ethnicity need harsh laws to block them.
        -Only others pay taxes while Jack collects benefits, such as his free tuition at UC while damning parcel taxes for AUSD
        -Jack’s property wealth taxed at a pittance while others pay 10x what he does,
        -Obama is a socialist, while Jack’s lifetime of government paychecks is rugged individualism

        etc etc

        Once you understand that, his positions are easy to predict.

        • see Dave, you and I do agree on some things.

        • Exactly, right on small d draft dodging dave. Couple of minor mistakes though, everybody’s forebears in this country came from somewhere else, I joined the Navy and the Navy paid a partial amount of College fees for anybody that served in the military during the Vietnam war. I didn’t vote for Prop 13 but fall under its purview, I worked 33 years for the government and get retirement benefits same as anybody else that worked for the government, Obama worked 8 and gets annual presidential pension of $205,700 at least ten times what a government employee.

        • Have never been subject to a draft and insanely weak vision would have likely disqualified me anyway.

          Yes, we all have forbears from someone else. You just don’t think laws should ever have applied to yours, while cheering on laws that stop others.

          Your lifetime of government checks are paid by productive members of society, aka taxpayers, same as the “welfare” that you like to whine about. And the what-about-ism of Obama’s pension is quaintly predictable from a Trumpkin, but Obama isn’t howling about others’ pensions while justifying his own. The forthright are more credible than the hypocrites.

          And whether or not you voted for P13, you loudly and repeatedly trumpet it as a positive good because it subsidizes you while others pay your way.

        • You do have weak vision.

        • Concession accepted.

  4. Heck no, if the parents broke the law and they are accompanied by their kids while breaking the law and the penalty for breaking that law is jail time, the parents should have the choice of warehousing the kids in a government facility until the parents are released, accompanying the parents to jail or setting the kids free in Bayport. or Karen port, or John P Trump port until the parents complete their jail time then the whole caboodle should be sent to and set free at the Canadian border.

    • wow that post was nonsensical blabber.

  5. Jack – Crossing into the United States at a border checkpoint to ask for asyluym when you have been threatened or in danger is not exactly “breaking the law,” but legitimate asylum seekers are being separated from their children, too. That leaves those minor children without legal representation, too. Isn’t that just **dandy**?
