nothing strengthens authority so much as silence


 

Love

is the motive,

but justice is the

instrument.

 

Reinhold Niebuhr

 
MCALLEN, Texas—

Inside the Border Patrol warehouse

on Ursula Avenue, pediatrician Dolly Lucio Sevier saw

a baby who’d been fed from the same unwashed bottle for days;

children showing signs of malnutrition and dehydration;

and several kids who, in her medical opinion,

were exhibiting clear evidence

of psychological

trauma.
