This should not even be a question. All people deserve to not be discriminated against because of immutable things about themselves. Race, sex, sexual orientation, etc. are what we are born with. Another category is the handicapped - some are born with a handicap and others become handicapped; they are also a protected class.
The most moral people I know are not religious. They might be spiritual, but not Bible thumpers. And look who the evangelicals elected. An unethical, unfaithful, treasonous, porn star f* ck ing moron.
A report to the U.S. Senate in 2016 stated that in the two years since the beginning of 2014, the Department of Health and Human Services had placed almost 90,000 unaccompanied minors with sponsors in the United States.
Under the terms of the 2008 Trafficking Victims Protection Act, unaccompanied minors from countries other than Canada and Mexico were transferred from Border Patrol to the Office of Refugee Resettlement, by law within 72 hours, said David Fitzgerald, co-director of the Center for Comparative Immigration Studies at University of California San Diego.
These minors were detained in a detention setting until they could be placed with a parent, family member, or other sponsor living in the U.S. They stayed with those caregivers until the end of their immigration proceedings, which would decide whether they could stay permanently or be deported.
