Children need to be reunited with their parents
The U.S. government has been forcibly separating families seeking safety in the U.S. These families are fleeing persecution and horrific violence, often from Central America.
Instead of being able to ask for asylum with dignity and security, they are treated cruelly. Children are taken from their parents at the border and put into government-run shelters, often hundreds of miles away from their parents, even when the parents have documentation proving their relationship to their children.
President Trump signed an executive order on June 20th that he claims would end family separation. This order does nothing to end the policy of family separation or reunite the over 2,000 children who have been forcibly separated from their parents and doesn’t stop the policy of prosecuting families seeking safety.
