Child Abuse Is A Crime Against Humanity

Even the most unintelligent among us know that separating two-year-old children from their parents inflicts a trauma on them that will probably last a lifetime, leading to severe mental illness. The act of the separation is, of course, child abuse. The rule not to allow physical contact with children, such as simply holding a crying baby, is abuse. Yet officials and parents like Attorney General Jeff Sessions and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders support Trump’s policy with Biblical references and disingenuous rhetorical posturing.
