Today’s Action: Stop the DHS from separating immigrant families

Thousands of protesters in over 30 cities across the country rallied for a National Day of Action for Children last Friday, in an outcry against the Trump Administration’s latest upsetting attack on immigrant children.

Earlier this month, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that he would seek “100% prosecution” for anyone entering the U.S. illegally, and separate parents from children instead of keeping them in detention centers together. But Sessions is going even farther than he claims, tearing apart families who arrive in the US legally, seeking asylum that could save their lives.

Just between May 6 and May 19, 658 children (including toddlers) were snatched from their parents at the border…the parents deported, and the children left in overcrowded detention facilities with no plans to reunite. The parents are asylum seekers, running from unfathomable violence and political oppression in Central and South America…and now the United States has taken away their children.

This is abhorrent, illegal, and must be stopped immediately.

Call or email your Members of Congress and demand they take action to reunite these families and end this cruel practice against those who need our protection the most.

It’s a horrific scene. Lee Gelernt, an ACLU attorney witnessed: “Little kids are begging and screaming not to be taken from parents, and they’re being hauled off…It’s as bad as anything I’ve seen in twenty-five-plus years of doing this work.”

Trump wants to use these unimaginably cruel tactics to scare off future immigrants and asylum seekers. But the Department of Homeland Security is required by law to act in the best interests of children — once again proving that Trump believes he’s completely above the law.

He’s not.

Email or call (202.224.0811) your Members of Congress and demand action to return these children to their parents, and stop Trump and Sessions from ripping apart any more families.
