Let’s salute those help­ing needy immigrant fam­i­lies

The Morning Call - - TOWN SQUARE -

Dur­ing his pres­i­den­tial cam­paign, Trump had vowed to crack down on un­doc­u­mented im­mi­grants. Pres­i­dent Trump has kept his prom­ise and has be­come no­to­ri­ous in crack­ing down on im­mi­grants who have been il­le­gally stay­ing in Amer­ica. His pol­icy has re­sulted in chil­dren be­ing sep­a­rated from their par­ents.

Ac­cord­ing to The Wash­ing­ton Post, “As news of immigrant par­ents be­ing sep­a­rated from their chil­dren at the bor­der filled head­lines last sum­mer, Vivien Tart­ter be­came dis­traught. So the 67-year-old psy­chol­ogy pro­fes­sor took ac­tion: She opened the doors of her Man­hat­tan apart­ment to a Gu­atemalan fam­ily of three who had been sep­a­rated at a de­ten­tion cen­ter in Colorado, re­united in New York and had no place to stay.”

Right af­ter the bru­tal 9/11 at­tacks, Amer­i­cans got united and sup­port­ive of each other. We must salute Amer­i­cans who are sup­port­ing the needy immigrant fam­i­lies. Such cit­i­zens are, no doubt, pro­mot­ing unity and in­tegrity in Amer­ica. Mayank Shyam Bethlehem Town­ship
