Leftist Hysteria

All this hysteria over children being separated from their illegal immigrant parents reminds me of the hysteria over the school free lunch program in the early '90's.  Anyone remember that?

You see some equivalency? I can't...

Of course there's an equivalency.  The left uses children for political purposes.  With illegal immigration, they want catch and release to continue, so cue the outrage over separations.  With the free lunch program, it was to claim Republicans wanted children to starve.  Never mind that the kids didn't miss out on meals during summer vacation.

We should release all criminals too, if they have children, because obviously, separating children from their parents because their parents broke the law is immoral.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

The treatment of illegal immigrants and their children was much worse during the Obama regime.

The leftists hate it when anyone mentions that.  Lips Sealed

I thought it was Republicans who were hysterical about giving out free lunches?

They were trying to cut spending to the National School Lunch Program, and the Dems went crazy, something they tend to do when someone attempts to reign in government spending.

Right, but the Republicans went crazy first didn't they?

The other alternative would be to put the children in jail too...

Which do you prefer?
