President Donald Trump's immigration policy separating parents from their children was wrong and does not solve the problem.
ICE is going after those who are here illegally but are not breaking any laws while they are here and only working hard to support their families. This humanitarian crisis has caused the children to suffer and this I find most appalling and extremely sad.
I truly understand why so many immigrants are trying to cross the American borders because of extreme poverty, abuse, torture and risk of death for speaking out against tyranny.
Trump has signed an executive order that will reunite the children with their parents, but that is easier said than done because some of these children are now thousands of miles away.
We need to protect our borders from the few who are terrorists, drug dealers and gang members, but many who cross our borders illegally are only looking for a better way of life for themselves and their children, and they are the ones who truly suffer from all this.
