As a child of war refugees, I am incredibly heartbroken. As a decent human being, I am outraged. Families belong together - no child deserves this kind of traumatic pain.
Here's what we can do:
1) Donate and/or share secure.actblue.com/donate/kids…
. These orgs are at the frontline working hard to protect these children.
2) CALL OUR REPS. Dial (202) 224-3121, state your zip code, and when connected say, "I live in ____, and I support SB 3036". SB 3036 - the "Keep Families Together" Act, introduced by CA Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, will stop the separation of children from their families (minus extreme circumstances when the child is deemed to be in danger).
Children are not a bargaining tool. Children are not a partisan issue. Children need us.
