President Trump and Attorney General Sessions' disdain for immigrants has sunk to new lows, even for them. In March, the Justice Department implemented a new policy towards migrants crossing the border illegally. Families crossing the border would no longer be detained together. Rather parents would be charged with a crime, giving U.S. Immigration the legal grounds they needed to strip them of their kids.
Recent reports state the government has already separated some 2,000 children from their parents.
The new family separation program has been widely panned by human, children, and immigrant's rights organizations as extraordinarily cruel and possibly illegal. But that hasn't stopped the administration from going forward, and the stories are horrific.
These are only a few of the many horrific stories stemming from the Trump Administration's new policy. Its a disgusting example of callousness from our own government, and these separations and the trauma and pain they cause is being done in our name.
We cannot allow it to continue.
Please sign the petition and demand that Trump and Sessions put an end to this cruel and inhumane policy and return the children who have already been forcibly removed to their parents.
