Thousands of children have been separated from their parents as a result of Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy. Jailing parents and children is cruel, immoral and will cause irreversible harm. This is not who we are as Americans.
JUNE 30 NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION
President Trump's executive order is not a solution. Parents and children will continue to be treated like criminals and jailed indefinitely when they reach the border seeking asylum. This is inhumane and not the solution that Americans want. And this is not what we mean when we say #PutFamiliesFirst.
Join one of the more than 700 events scheduled on June 30 to demand an end to President Trump’s cruel and inhumane policy of jailing families for months, even years, and for families to be reunited. We must keep families together in an environment where children can be free and thrive.
