There should be a droit des gens

I think there should be a “droit des gens” concerning
stealing children from desperate poor people seeking asylum
locking them in cages, raping them, and losing them.
What is next? a reimplementation of “droit du seigneur?”
less farfetched now than ever before.  

Droit des gens:  French for International Law
Droit du seigneur:  French for the right of the acting czar to bed
                                  virgins of his country the night before their weddings.
