son's message imparted to me. As citizens, we have a civil and moral responsibility to ensure that decisions of policy makers are firmly rooted in the Constitution. They can't wield the law as they see fit. Their decisions and pronouncements must be just, practical and firmly
tethered to the truth. We cannot allow the administration to lose sight of the fact each non-immigrated resident here represents a human being who counts on us to treat them fairly and in accordance with our laws.
The current administration may rightly believe the struggle of individuals is of little consequence when compared to the national interest
and social order. However, while conserving social order, we should not ruthlessly ignore or unnecessarily destroy the moral and social future of individuals who may be here without permission. That's just plain wrong.
