Letter to the Editor: Stop treating immigrant families, minors as political pawns

  • 0
  • 1 min to read

It’s never too late to try to do some good. 

I urge Sen. Lamar Alexander, Sen. Marsha Blackburn and Rep. Mark Green, as representatives of areas that have large immigrant populations, to stand in solidarity with those who are caught in the crisis at our border. 

As an area that consistently claims to be pro-life, it is consistent with your constituents’ beliefs to ensure that all people that come to this country, regardless of documentation or status, are treated fairly, with respect, and have their dignity upheld— especially those of children. 

Sens. Alexander and Blackburn and Rep. Green must use their power to end the detention of minors, the separation of families and the use of the poor and vulnerable as pawns in this political game. Children have died and will continue do so unless my elected officials use their power to insist that we change our policies and practices on our southern border.
