It is overwhelmingly gut wrenching to watch, read about, and hear the cries from what is currently taking place in our country. Children are being taken away from their families and held in caged, locked spaces, manned by guards. I am a mother and this is my worst nightmare. I cannot imagine the terror that these children, not to mention their parents, are feeling right now. There is nothing about this that is even remotely okay. Even if we have different political views, this is not the answer to stronger border control. Children are not leverage. This is barbaric, cold hearted, and completely disgusting. Get it together America. Please help these families and call your congressman right now.
Regardless of a child’s immigration status they are still just a child. Regardless of where they are coming from they still maintain their basic human rights that must be respected. In homage to the iconic I AM A MAN photograph from 1968, we hope to remind Americans that ALL children are human beings and are all of our responsibility. #FamiliesBelongTogether #EndFamilySeparation
