To be fair, you have to recognize there is a difference between you having to be separated from your children as an active duty serviceman - when your kids are left in the care of your spouse or other loved ones - and a child being "taken for a bath" and not returned to a parent where the child and parent don't know where each other are or whether they will ever be able to be reunited. There is a HUGE difference between the two situations. It's unfortunate that those who serve our country may have to be separated from their children and other loved ones for long periods of time. It's unfortunate that merchant marines, long haul truck drivers and many others are required by their chosen profession to spend significant time away from their families. But if we're being honest there is absolutely no comparison between those separations and the ones the asylum seekers and illegal border crossers faced.
