Stop Family Separation

Stop tearing children away from their parents. Families belong together.

Why is this important?

Recent news stories of children being torn away from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border are heartbreaking.

One story described a mother whose baby girl was yanked from her arms while she was breastfeeding her. The mother cried out and tried to hang on to her child as government agents forcibly separated them.

Hundreds of other families have been torn apart since the Trump administration enacted this brutal new policy.

This shockingly cruel, traumatic, and inhumane practice has no place in our country. It must be stopped immediately, and without holding these children hostage to pass other anti-immigrant policies.

We must speak loudly enough, and in large enough numbers, that the media stays focused on this story.
