There are many words that could be used to describe the crisis on our southern border, as thousands of unaccompanied children stream into this country. But two I’ve been waiting for someone to say are “child abuse.”
I was glad to see the meaning, if not the actual words, appear in a powerful column by Peggy Noonan in The Wall Street Journal. She ended “The Crisis on The Border” by writing: “The little children in great danger, holding hands, staring blankly ahead, are pawns in a larger game. That game is run by adults. How cold do you have to be to use children in this way?”
Exactly. And who is the coldhearted so-and-so who is using these desperate and frightened children? Sad to say, it’s none other than the President of the United States. Here’s how Noonan put it: “There is every sign he let the crisis on the border build to put heat on Republicans and make them pass his idea of good immigration reform.”
What a cruel hoax that has turned out to be!
