Letter: Republican Party should examine its bad policies

I seldom agree with Republican party policies, but in 50-plus years of political awareness I have not questioned the basic decency of Republican leaders.

Now we have a Republican president who boasts of grabbing women’s genitals. The president’s family is busy setting up alliances that will line their own pockets. Cabinet members spend taxpayer money on vacation travel, send taxpayer-provided staff on personal errands, demand taxpayer-funded security befitting a head of state. The Republican Congress turns a blind eye to all abuses.

All that pales in comparison to the recent policy of ripping children, including infants, from their parents and putting them in camps. We see rows of children sleeping on the floor, crying because they don’t understand why mommy doesn’t come. Immigrants who come to request asylum are not breaking the law. This is despicable. Have they no shame? Has the party of decency disappeared forever?
