Allow sect mothers to stay with their children

I am concerned with the way the families of the sect members of Zion Ranch in Texas are being treated. While it may be true that they are a cult and there was abuse there, we have to remember that these people are individuals. Many of these people were born into this life and this is all they know. I think it is important as they transition into “normal” society that they do so as a family. Of course, what is a family in a polygamist society is an issue, but I think it’s important that they at least keep the mothers and children together. These people are not criminals and should not be treated as such. They have to see us as a compassionate caring society and not as armed invaders who are going to steal their children.
