From the border to Boston and all over the country, families are being torn apart by a government that criminalizes, detains, and deports them. Recently the Trump administration escalated its racist attacks on immigrants by separating children from their parents at the border and putting them in cages. After public outcry, their “solution” was to keep families together … in detention centers. But jailing families is not a solution.
Families deserve to be together and free, but Trump is also keeping people from majority Muslim countries from being reunited with their families in the United States. The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the Muslim Ban this week and we need to let them know they have to overturn it once and for all.
This goes beyond Trump and this administration. Now is the time to be clear: this is about putting an end to criminalization, detention, and deportations in our communities.
