I find myself extremely torn as I ponder the topic of the deportation of our Mexican Brothers and Sisters, especially with the primary argument against being that “we should not be separating families!” On the one hand, I abhor the idea of mothers and fathers being separated from their children, however I also recognized that the coming across the border illegally is in fact a crime. Now let’s say a Black single mother of two commits a crime that is punishable by jail time, would the “justice system” commute her sentence under the grounds that “we do not separate families?” The obvious answer is no! That single mother would have to do her time and her children would be at best put in the care of a family member or at worst entered into the system. Hence the moral dilemma I find this subject to be!
