“It all happened so fast. The ghetto. The deportation. The sealed cattle car. The fiery altar upon which the history of our people and the future of mankind were meant to be sacrificed.” — Elie Wiesel

Should we as caring human beings feel any remorse for this type of criminal minded person who flaunted the rules and regulation of civilized society in order to carve out for themselves a life of crime, a legacy of anti social behavior and a trust that the system that allowed them to run amok among peaceful people will overlook and even forgive their foibles and shortcomings?
The answer is a resounding “no”. These folks knew the rules of right and wrong but decided to break away from the herd and take the risk that their lesser crimes would not be noticed by society at large. Afterall, they figured that everyone else they knew were engaged in such illegal activities. What was one more rotten apple in the barrel of life?
The times they are changing. A presidential clamp down on their unlawful shenanigans has placed them in the cross hairs of governmental organizations determined to arrest, detain and deport them back to Mexico. The days of wine and roses for them has suddenly turned into the soured grapes of wrath.
The folks we should feel empathy for are the children of illegals who were born in the United States, have become productive members of society and are now fearful that some day they too will be caught up in the net of “undesirables” anathema to the well-being of the country.
CNN interviewed a man who had been deported three times from the United States during the Obama administration.He managed to get across the Us Mexico border and visited his family in New Jersey.
In those days the immigration enforcement agencies and crackdown on such anti social behavior was less focused than it is today.
Pray for the children — the innocent souls caught up in the battle of political roulette. — gc
