Today’s Action: Family separation is STILL happening and needs to stop NOW

Last summer, after massive public outcry, Trump signed an executive order to stop the family separation policies he created at the border. Since then, he has separated at least 900 children from their parents.

Trump is relying on a technicality he included in his executive order, that a child may be separated if the parent poses a risk. And he’s abused this technicality far beyond any reasonable line. For example:

  • Removing three young girls from a father who tested HIV positive, without giving any explanation of this “risk”
  • Separating a baby from her father because her diaper was dirty
  • Keeping a daughter from her father on false doubts of his paternity…resulting in the daughter being sexually assaulted under federal custody while separated
  • A father losing his son due to the father’s speech impediment
  • Separating families for traffic violations, property damage, and other minor “crimes” that happened many years ago, and often allegations without actual convictions

We are so angry, and our leaders should be, too. Call or email your Members of Congress and state representatives and read these examples to them. Tell them Trump has separated 900 families since promising to stop – and it’s up to Congress to fix this monstrous policy.

More than half of the separations have included children under the age of 10…nearly 200 have included children under five. And five children have died in custody.

Their living conditions are beyond inhumane, with countless examples of 8-year-olds caring for toddlers, no access to showers or clean diapers, overcrowding, and frigid temperatures. History will not remember kindly those in power who allowed these policies – IF we keep the heat on, IF we make sure it is not normalized, IF we fight back.

Email or call your Members of Congress (202.224.3121) and state representatives. Share the news that a predicted 1000 children will be separated from their parents by the end of the year, and ask them what they’re doing to fight Trump’s policies of terror at the border.
