Kudos to Governor O'Malley

With virtually every politician looking for political cover instead of a real solution to the humanitarian crisis on the border, Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley has risked the ire of President Obama by reminding everyone that we are talking about children. O'Malley said:

We are not a country that should send children away and send them back to certain death. I believe that we should be guided by the greatest power we have as a people, and that is the power of our principles. Through all of our great world religions, we are told that hospitality to strangers is an essential human dignity.

Amen. Kudos.
