The Trump Administration recently announced a new policy of systematically ripping children from the arms of migrant mothers and fathers at the U.S. border as punishment for coming to the U.S.
This new family separation policy is consistent with Trump’s immigration strategy, which is founded on tearing families apart and instilling fear in immigrant communities. Additionally, this new family separation policy is being conflated with a separate issue related to unaccompanied children who arrive at our southern U.S. border, and who are then often allowed to reunite with family members living in the U.S.
As a result, there is a significant amount of confusion about what’s really happening. Learn more here.
That said, no one in this administration can be trusted to prioritize the wellbeing of immigrant families and children. Call your MoCs today!
