Do we really trust that our children are safe in immigration detention camps? Do we look at a tent city full of babies and think we’ve done the right thing? Can we ignore the lifelong trauma our children will face from this enforced separation? Are we sure our children are being protected from predators and abusers?
There is no such thing as other people’s children.
When we see the allegations of abuse and assault our children are facing, we must be enraged. We must speak out. We can’t afford to stay silent. Our children’s lives are at stake. Our humanity is at stake.
Contact your representatives. Call their staff, send letters, show up at their offices. Donate to organizations like the ACLU that are fighting for our children. Don’t give up until we know ALL our children are safe.
