Write your lawmaker: Families belong together

Donald Trump’s family separation policy is extremely flawed. Even though we sadly know that there are several thousand children who are being separated from their parents due to his policy, we don’t know how many of these children have been or will ever be reunited with their parents.

These separations are not just happening at our borders. They are happening due to raids by ICE, the unconstitutional asylum bans, and the Muslim Ban 3.0. Right now Dreamers, Individuals with Temporary Protected Statuses (TPS), and Individuals with Deferred Enforced Departures (DED) are all at risk of being deported under Trump’s policy. 

There are bills that are being introduced to Congress that can help those who are at risk of being deported. Please call, write, and/or email your Member of Congress to cosponsor and to ask Congress to pass The Dream and Promise Act (H.R. 6), and the Muslim Ban and Asylum Ban Repeal Act.

Also call, write, and/or email your state senator and state Assembly person to cosponsor and pass the Separation of Children Accountability Response Act – SCAR Act (S222A). Families belong together, not separated.

— Debbie Lindon, Clinton

Can you at least admit that illegal immigrants have broken the law? I understand your concern but if the law was not broken or if existing laws were enforced, this would be a non issue.
