Letter to my senator

Dear Senator Barrasso,
How can you stand by this president? How can you support the policy of child separations at the border? How can you support an administration that perpetrates such horrors while lying to the American people about it? How can you justify this treatment of children? I cannot imagine what must be in your mind as you stand next to President Trump in all those photos you seem to want to be in. How can you sleep at night? You must stop this. There must be a moral core inside of you somewhere. Please can you do something? Please? 
Your Constituent,
Amy Ryan

Dear Amy, 
Thank you for taking the time to contact me about asylum and border security issues. It is good to hear from you.
I appreciate hearing your thoughts on the recent influx of asylum requests and subsequent humanitarian crisis on our southern border. In order to uphold the safety and security of all Americans when processing asylum applications, we must have a strong background check and vetting process. While you and I agree we must remain compassionate toward families and children fleeing for their safety from war torn countries, we must also make sure our borders are secure. Please know I will keep your thoughts in mind as I continue to monitor this situation.
Again, thank you for taking the time to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you in the future.
John Barrasso, M.D.
United States Senator

My response:

It is insane to equate child abuse with secure borders. One has nothing to do with the other.
