While the recent Executive Order on family separation proved (again!) that our voices are powerful when we speak up for justice, it does NOT stop the Trump administration from continuing human rights abuses, like imprisoning entire families simply for asking for asylum, which is their legal right under U.S. and international law.

We can’t let up the pressure! We must keep our voices raised, our calls going into Congress, and also our letter writing, petition signing, and our rallying at full throttle. Imprisoning children with their families is still imprisoning children.

This weekend, on Saturday June 30th, critically important rallies are taking place near you-- and across the country — to make it clear we have zero-tolerance for Trump’s human rights abuses. It’s essential that people keep showing up and speaking out.

It’s long past time for President Trump’s lies and destructive immigration policies to end. Children deserve to be with their families outside of cages and they deserve to have their rights protected. Families should not be imprisoned. Reuniting children with their families and then imprisoning them indefinitely in jails or detention centers is no solution, nor is forcing them to return to the violence and danger they risked their lives to flee.

Trump’s Executive Order did not resolve these matters.

In fact, the Trump administration created this crisis and the Trump administration still must offer real solutions that treat immigrant and asylum-seeking families with fairness, compassion, care, dignity, and respect.

* Let’s make sure the Trump administration hears loud and clear that we aren’t going anywhere until there’s justice for children and families. Click here to get more information!

Our nation must do better than this. We can’t allow human rights abuses in the name of immigration enforcement to continue to happen — and we also can’t turn our backs on one another now. Make sure you click to get information on how you can take action today!
