America is considered to be the epitome of freedom, justice, and opportunity. The crisis occuring at the border says otherwise. What happened to America being a beacon of hope? What happened to America's compassion for the unfortunate? What happened to America's need to fight for basic human rights? The human rights violation occuring at the border is not representative of American values. We do not keep children in cages. We set them free. We must show them that they have our support. Let us be their beacon of hope.
