Human compassion

Where has it gone? These are humans, people, children and they are being relegated and labelled as just being burdens on righteous society or some other vague "wrong". What happened to America, the land of opportunity, the land of the brave, the land of the dreamers?

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand

A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name

Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command

The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

"Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she

With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

As a commentard noted above, a large number of these children may be stuck in "bad areas", "ghettos" or whatever you want to call them... but what is being done to fix this? (as in fix these areas) Instead we see another attack on the vulnerable and those that can't defend themselves.
