Number of Children in Foster Care Booms Due to Obama Administration's Deportations

My heart is broken and my stomach sickened by the very country I once loved so much, but after reading this Reason article about children being placed into Parents Deportedfoster care after their hard-working parents are deported, how else can I feel?

This is just one story of many from a startling new report issued by the Applied Research Center, which found that 46,000 parents of children born in the U.S. have been deported in the last six months, with many of them forced to leave their kids behind. Another 5,100 children of undocumented workers, an estimate that the ARC says is conservative, are currently in foster care and unlikely to see their deported parents again…

This is not America.  This is not the country that was founded on the principle of individual rights.  This is not the country that Thomas Jefferson wrote about so eloquently.  This is not a nation of justice and laws, but a nation of immoral laws and unfairness.  I'm ashamed, disturbed and saddened by the mess that is the US Government.  It is not a government of the people, by the people or for the people, and until it is, things will only get worse.
