News reports that Trump may be sending as many as 5,000 troops to the border on top of the 2,500 National Guard already there. Since the Honduras/Guatemala caravan is traveling by foot & still over 1,000 miles away, those soldiers will be facing off in some way with young women & small children who reportedly make up the majority of people now crossing in large numbers. And still that’s not as horrific as the EU whose policies have led to the drowning of over 25,000 African refugees in the Mediterranean or forcing thousands of war refugees trying to enter Europe to live in concentration camps or in the rough during record cold winters. We have to reclaim our humanity & cannot merely stand aghast whilst our governments treat other human beings like trash. No human being is alien to us.
