Jailing innocent children

Beyond politics, beyond treaties, beyond conservatives and liberals, there is simple human love and decency.

We decry the hateful activities of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, who, with the full approval of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, separates and incarcerates children of families seeking asylum and/or a better life. This activity constitutes the inhumane behavior that our country should never again condone or perpetrate, and disproves the claim that we are a Christian nation.

Someday our children will learn about this horrific moment in history and ask, “Did you speak out?”

Please let your voices be heard now and continuously until the jailing stops.

Ted Ketcham
