Information about the separation of children from their parents at the borders is egregious and antithetical to all that we Christians hold dear. What is being done to children as a political bargaining chip must be stopped – first we must understand, and then we must take action. Bishop Breidenthal and many other religious authorities have spoken against this practice. This is NOT a political partisan issue, it is a humanitarian one. If you are not enraged by these actions, you should be – and we have to take action!
