Our current immigration policies are failing and family separation does nothing to protect our borders. With cases of thousands of people being held in rampant unhygenic, disease-prone, overcrowded conditions in cells that function as cages; children missing, abused and dying; the trauma of separation between children and caregivers — the horrors have been unimaginable. That level of trauma trickles into all of our communities.
And that’s just those at the border.
What can you do? First, elect reps that will reunite families, close these camps, and reform immigration from a humane lens. Elect reps that will support The Dream Act. Elect reps that will uphold our laws but ensure law-abiding, hard-working families are not separated.
Second, take action now where you can.
