Reply to "Question about a semi colon"

One final question - in light of your point about modern convention, what are your thoughts about the semi colons in the following two examples? Totally wrong, or just incorrect from a conservative modern standpoint?

1) "It is a subject that divides and unites; fostering solidarity and discord in equal measure."

2) "The language of migration is inherently complex; spanning, legal, political and societal frameworks."

Many thanks!

Cameron
