Trump didn't really do anything.

You are aware that this all happened under other presidents than Trump aren't you? Trump initiated a zero tolerance policy due to the idiocy of the previous ways. (they were sending the offenders out into the US and hoping they would show up to court, they didn't.)
You're ignoring that this was Trump's call to make - to separate children from their parents. If you don't want to acknowledge this I can't make you. But it is what it is
It's wrong - immoral. Trump is amoral
You haven't answered the important question yet. Are you for open borders? It really matters as to how this conversation will go.
Why does it matter? Open borders or not - the way we treat other human beings has nothing to do with this. Explain to me why the decision whether or not to abuse people is dependent on national policy?
I can already see how this conversation will go. You want to rationalize abusive behavior. You'll have to come up with your own loopholes - and massage your own conscience Network
So while I still think you are level headed and a good thinker most of the time, I do believe that you are being led by emotions, and not really yours, but the emotions you were told to have. I look forward to your return to the actual world. I'll welcome you and hand you a beer when you get back.
