ICE, ICE, Baby.

ICE rounded up 680 immigrants yesterday in Mississippi, leaving their American born children stranded on the sidewalk for their first week of school.

This little girl, along with other children, was taken to a gym by bystanders where she stayed overnight. She’ll probably get put in the foster care system. In Mississippi. Yeah, think about that.

We saw this coming. I wrote this back in June this year in Who Gets their Stuff?:

What happens to their American born children? Do they get swept up too? That would likely trigger judicial injunctions. Would they stay with their parents? WHERE would they stay with their parents?

Would they get left behind? Where would all those little American children get left behind? On the street? Who will feed them, house then, make sure no one hurts them?

If you were an American born kid of migrant parents and you saw the sudden panic on your parents’ faces in the last 24 hours, how would you focus on your spelling test tomorrow? How could you even sleep?

By the way, who does get their stuff now that they’re gone? Is this little girl entitled to any of her parents’ things?

I mean, isn’t it enough that we’re heartless? Do we have to be thieves too?

I only ask.
