Has America become the Bad Guys?

Letter to the Editor

When I was a child I used to have nightmares about government thugs arresting my parents and dragging us kids off somewhere else. It was a time when Nazis and WWII wasn’t very long in the past and we all learned about the concentration camps. And although not much about being raised Jewish stuck with me, the holocaust was definitely real. But we were Americans, the good guys, who were there like superheroes to save the day, liberating the prisoners from the death camps. And that made being an American something to be proud of.

Now I see in the news where we as Americans are taking desperate refugees crossing the border and throwing them in jail and deliberately separating them from their children as some form of cruel nightmare punishment and using that to send a message, “Don’t come to America or we will take your children from you!”. Have we now become them? Are we now the bad guys? Are we the kind of people who separate children from their parents? Are we really that cruel? Are we becoming the nightmare country? Have we gone insane?
