How could this ever be misconstrued as  anything except positive? These are promoters of HOPE, LOVE and INCLUSION, not protestors. ;)

Thanks Ed Ecker. Keep up your great work.  These protesters are helping lead the Dem party right over the edge.

Desperation at it's best !

Where are these people when a parent goes to jail and is separated from their child, when they go off to fight for our country, when they die ?

Maybe those that think separation is such a crime should fight for the millions of unborn children that are murdered every year because they are not wanted and have NO voice about their fate !

Emotion is their flag and reason has become their poison !
