Dear Editor: The Rome Statue which created the International Criminal Court provides the most recent and expansive list of specified criminal acts that may constitute crimes against humanity.

Among the prohibited acts are: Enslavement, deportation or forcible transfer of population, imprisonment, persecution against an identifiable group, and other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering, or serious injury to body or to mental or physical health.

The present administration, in my opinion, has engaged in those. 

The present administration has lost its own humanity.

When we lose our ability to have empathy for other people, we have lost our own humanity.

When people agree with the present administration, they cannot use the excuse, "The administration does a lot of good; employment and the economy."

Neither reason is a valid excuse for crimes against humanity.

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

Do you remember the two or three-year-old child in her red blouse, crying, being separated from her parents?

Where is our humanity?
