More toddlers appear alone in court for deportation under family separation

My older readers may remember the letter written by Martin Niemoller:

When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn’t a Jew.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

As reported by PBS on June 28, 2018, even as the White House faces court orders to reunite families separated at the border, immigrant children as young as 3 are being ordered into court alone for their own deportation proceedings.

We as a people cannot be silent. If you can stand your heart being crushed by what our country has become, I urge you to read the article.
