On Different Interpretations of "Suffer the Little Children"

As you are no doubt aware, tens of thousands of children are fleeing their homes in Central America and seeking refuge in the U.S. These children are not crossing the border hoping to find the American Dream, exactly - they're just hoping to survive. They are running from violence - many of them have been targeted, with threats of violence and death for them or their families.

If you'd like to help them, there are several ways to do so. The Texas Young Democrats have set up a “Wish List” on Amazon. You can purchase basic necessities off the list and, when you check out, you’ll have the option to send your items directly to the Texas Young Democrats. You could also donate to Catholic Charities and help to provide food, shelter, and medical attention to child refugees. Another option is to donate to KIND (Kids In Need of Defense), which offers legal services to children facing the immigration legal system alone.

After all, we've got to come up with something better than sending them to labor camps. I mean, really - what kind of person considers that a moral option? (Oh, hey there, Michele...)
