Damn, that is so sad that that baby's parents would risk it's life by involving it in their criminal scheme to gain citizenship...
watch the rate of people dragging children through the desert to go nuclear.

No. Its not.
The original point here is that these people are trying to get into the US illegally. Which hurts the country. There is a reason there is a system set up. Too much of any one thing upsets a balance. Now these people may be fleeing for economic reasons, they may be fleeing because their country is a # hole. Their reason for fleeing doesnt mean that their arrival doesnt upset the balance, which is why the laws are in place. So they gotta go.
While I might agree with you, we gotta be compassionate about it. Separating families and children isn't good and that isn't us as Americans.
Why do we need to make a separation? Why can't we feel bad for all these kids and treat kids as kids, and make sure no child is harmed in any way -- emotionally, nor physically? I'm not saying you ever did this, but why do people in all these conversations have to categorize kids into levels worth caring about and those that are not?
There are 8 million+ refugees in the world and something like 20% of all humans dont have enough to eat, where do we draw the line? Do we invite all 8 mill refugees into the west? What about the ones who dont have the financial means or health required to land on our doorsteps and seek asylum?

I get it that we're not going to all see eye to eye here. Some of us are going to see more emotion in this and others will try to make it look like it's nothing. Some will be very business like and see children as numbers and other will see these as their own, as a mother or a father. We're all different.
But ask yourselves this... when all is said and done, hopefully resolved peacefully... who do you think will end up looking bad?
Those who were on the side of kids or those who were not?
