No, this is not the most important issue we are facing, by far. But it’s an embarrassing symbol of just how out of touch this disgusting family is with anything less than opulence. And if you think they’re not aware of how this looks, I’ve got a wall to sell you, which Mexico is going to pay for.
Let’s not kid ourselves. The detention and possible deportation of 10-year-old Rosamaria Hernandez is not just an accident or oversight on the part of immigration agents.
It is intentionally done to instill fear and apprehension into the undocumented community. Which can have deadly consequences, if people are so afraid of being apprehended by immigration agents that they avoid seeking medical treatment.
It is a disgrace that this is what America has become. If anti-immigrant people saw this child as a person and not a dehumanized number or statistic, they might have a harder time justifying this despicable action on the part of our government.
