Your Opinion: Illegals' parents, not U.S, are the abusers

Your Opinion: Illegals' parents, not U.S, are the abusers

June 27th, 2018 by Bert Dirschell, Centertown in Opinion

Dear Editor:

Are we now going to allow all lawbreakers who happen to be the parent of a minor child, to be released on their own recognizance, even those who are obviously a flight risk? Or, will this "benefit" only be given to those non-citizens who illegally enter our nation?

If the U.S. environment is as abusive as we are being led to believe, who is forcing these parents to illegally enter an area where they know their children will be abused? Isn't knowingly placing your child in an abusive situation a crime?

Let's be honest with ourselves, the reason the vast majority of these people want in the U.S. is because the residents of their home nation are incapable of developing a decent society. Rather than fixing problems in their home nation they choose to illegally take advantage of citizens in our nation, and then they have the gall to complain.
