Laura Bush criticizes Trump immigration policy as immoral

On the website it is titled Laura Bush: Separating children from their parents at the border ‘breaks my heart’ and it is well worth the read.

Two paragraphs make up the heart of this piece:

Our government should not be in the business of warehousing children in converted box stores or making plans to place them in tent cities in the desert outside of El Paso. These images are eerily reminiscent of the Japanese American internment camps of World War II, now considered to have been one of the most shameful episodes in U.S. history. We also know that this treatment inflicts trauma; interned Japanese have been two times as likely to suffer cardiovascular disease or die prematurely than those who were not interned.

Americans pride ourselves on being a moral nation, on being the nation that sends humanitarian relief to places devastated by natural disasters or famine or war. We pride ourselves on believing that people should be seen for the content of their character, not the color of their skin. We pride ourselves on acceptance. If we are truly that country, then it is our obligation to reunite these detained children with their parents — and to stop separating parents and children in the first place.

She also offers a long paragraph on her mother-in-law, the late Barbara Pierce Bush, who while visiting a clinic picked up a fussy child who was infected with and dying from AIDS
