Please come and show your support for this important action. *Event will also feature speakers, including Congressional Candidates in the NY-02 primary Liuba Gretchen Shirley and Leg. DuWayne Gregory amongst others (details to follow!)
This action is part of a national response that opposes the cruel, inhumane and unjustified separation of children from their parents along the U.S. border with Mexico and at other ports of entry into the U.S. We protest the conditions in which these children are kept. We protest the irreversible trauma that has already been perpetrated on these children and their parents for the crime of seeking a better life.
To separate immigrant families, victims of violence, hunger and poverty, is to re-violate them. Children as young as 18 months are torn from their mother’s arms by the U.S. government. This is violent abuse. These families are victimized again by the government to which they turn for help. We oppose the inhumane policies of the Trump Administration, Border Control, and I.C.E. and calls for immediate reform.
