Hundreds of children remain separated

Tomorrow marks four weeks since the deadline to reunite families separated at the border by the Trump administration. Yet when we spoke with June Williams at Senator Harris’ office last week, she told us that 539 children still needed to be reunited. Every day, the government is defying the courts.

For perhaps 366 of these children, reunification will be even more difficult. The administration has deported their parents, with no plans to stay in touch to give their children back.

Trump’s cruel and inhumane policy has traumatized and effectively orphaned these innocents. This humanitarian disaster is ongoing.


ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW


We don’t often ask you to donate, but desperate times call for desperate measures. Here are three organizations we believe to be doing essential work in assisting separated families. These children are suffering. Please give what you can.

  • The Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project is the only organization in Arizona that provides free legal and social services to detained men, women, and children under threat of deportation.
  • Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the International Rescue Committee is mobilizing to provide asylum-seeking families who have been released from immigration custody with critical aid.
  • RAICES is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees in Texas.
