The left is working overtime to try to claim the moral high ground on this issue. This professor is the one who should be ashamed.

Prof calls for public shaming of US Border Patrol so they quit their jobs
A human rights professor called for the public shaming of U.S. border agents for committing a “mass atrocity” against detained illegal immigrants.
Kate Cronin-Furman, a professor of human rights at University College London, wrote in a New York Times op-ed that the public should shame individual U.S. Border Patrol agents to pressure them to quit doing their jobs.
“The identities of the individual Customs and Border Protection agents who are physically separating children from their families and staffing the detention centers are not undiscoverable,” Cronin-Furman wrote in the op-ed. “Immigration lawyers have agent names; journalists reporting at the border have names, photos and even videos. These agents’ actions should be publicized, particularly in their home communities.”
“The knowledge, for instance, that when you go to church on Sunday, your entire congregation will have seen you on TV ripping a child out of her father’s arms is a serious social cost to bear,” the professor continued, stressing that she was not arguing for doxxing. “The desire to avoid this kind of social shame may be enough to persuade some agents to quit and may hinder the recruitment of replacements.”
The professor argued that Border Patrol agents are likely to commit what she termed atrocities not out of ideological commitment, but mere desire for a paycheck. She suggested these officers have a “lack of personal investment,” making them “much more susceptible to pressure than national leaders.”
