laskern -“Being an immigrant, my heart goes out for what is happening in our borders from Latin America. America is known from its humanity and this behavor is inhumane.”
Really? The US is known for it’s “Humanity”?!?
I know that all the libs are screaming about the illegals who try to come here and are separated from their kids.
In our wonderful country, everyday, courts separate kids from one parent over another, even if the other parent hasn’ commited a crime!
In some cases they remove both parents because DYFS knows what’s BEST for s/o else’s Kids!?!June 24, 2018 7:08 pm at 7:08 pm #1545689
Look at the website of the National Agudath Israel about their statement for the moral obligation not to separate children from the parents and to reunite them.June 25, 2018 4:01 pm at 4:01 pm #1546147
laskern -“Look at the website of the National Agudath Israel about their statement for the moral obligation not to separate children from the parents and to reunite them.”
Are they worried about kids that are taken by the courts from one parent to another or are they just being PC?!?June 25, 2018 11:52 pm at 11:52 pm #1546321
The Agudas’ statement:
AGUDATH ISRAEL ON IMMIGRATION FAMILY SEPARATION POLICY: US HAS “MORAL OBLIGATION” TO “EXHIBIT HUMANITY AND COMPASSION”
Agudath Israel of America expresses its very deep concern and disappointment over the recently adopted policy of separating the members of families who have entered the United States illegally. It is a practice that has caused, and will continue to cause, profound suffering and pain to both parents and children. We implore that the policy be immediately rescinded, and that affected families be reunited.
The problem of illegal immigration is a serious one, and we support reasonable efforts by the administration and legislature to effectively stem the flow of would-be immigrants who have not been accepted through the legal immigration system.
But the United States, a shining beacon of freedom in the world, must always exhibit humanity and compassion in its laws and policies. Seeking to enforce our statutes does not relieve us of this moral obligation. The extreme anguish, fear and trauma born of separating undocumented immigrant family members, which is particularly harmful to children, deeply offend our highest values. It is wrong and unjustifiable.
As Jews, we find this practice particularly loathsome. For millennia, Jews in the diaspora have suffered many forms of persecution, including — among the most tragic — the forced breakup of our families. It is a punishment that neither parents nor children should ever have to endure.June 26, 2018 8:18 am at 8:18 am #1546391
laskern – Since when has the Agudah become a liberal mouthpiece?!?
I know cases where the Frum parent lost the kid(s) to the Non-Frum parent, but no comment from the Agudah!!!
