The Trump Regime ripped children from their parents and placed them in detention camps; and while in those camps, they are forced to recite the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag in English "to show respect." 

To show respect for a country that kidnapped them and placed them in internment camps away from their parents -- the country that took no precautions to have those babies and children returned to their parents, from whom they may be separated for weeks, months, years, maybe even forever, since there is no identification process in place to reunite children and parents.

The innocent are supposed to "respect" a country that does that to them.

Sickening (from Business Insider):

Migrant children are being forced to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in shelters after authorities separated them from their parents. 

The children are forced to recite the pledge in English every morning "out of respect." 

This is occurring at Casa Padre, the country's largest shelter for migrant children, which gained attention for its cramped sleeping quarters and dehumanizing practices.

"Let me make sure I have this straight: babies and children who have done nothing wrong are being ripped away from their parents, locked in cages, and being forced to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in front of murals of Donald Trump, but the biggest crisis of today is 'civility'?" --Julia Conley, staff writer, Common Dreams

Recently saw a poll that said 90% of republicans approve of and support Trump. Mass insanity

This is nauseating and perverted. It's bad enough when football players are coerced into displays of patriotism, but this takes things to an even worse level.

It's a blatant ploy to appeal to the most depraved elements of the Trumpanzee base, the kind of people who would cackle in diseased triumph at the though of foreign kids being forced to genuflect before American symbols.

Most of these children will never forget or forgive the treatment they're experiencing. And I'm sure the media throughout Latin America are covering all these abuses closely. Trump is convincing hundreds of millions of people throughout a huge neighboring region that the United States is a racist abomination.

Insanity is where people are outraged over separating children from their parents temporarily yet they are fine with killing the unborn children
Oh I;m sorry, that is not insanity but it sure is hypocrisy. But it does go inline with allowing pedophiles into womens restrooms and putting children in with adults. Who can an illegal sue when her child gets molested?

Looks like the wall is something we really need, even though I think it is stupid. More border patrol and stiffer penalties would help but that just won't happen.

I, for one, will not recite the Pledge of Allegiance as long as Trump is president.

Skudrunner: Blah blah blah

Classic troll behavior. When you can't win the argument, change the subject.

Why do some constantly attempt to compare apples to oranges and arrive at the conclusion they are the same?

It's like when people demand foreign athletes to "respect" the anthem...why?
