The Trump Administration is breaking up families. It’s happening at our borders, at churches, schools, and workplaces. Toddlers are being ripped from their mother’s arms as they seek protection at the border. An overburdened system is now being bombarded as hundreds more children are sent to custody for no good reason. Mothers and fathers who have lived in the country for decades are being forced to decide whether they should leave their American children behind in the care of others for a secure and brighter future or take them with them to face a possible death sentence in a country now foreign to them. Kids are having to grow up fast as their mothers and fathers are forcibly taken away by ICE. It’s an American crisis happening right in front us where children - from the toddlers at the border to Dreamers losing DACA and American-born children of immigrant parents - have become the victims in Trump’s America.
At the core of who we are as Americans is our love of country and family. From the border to our neighborhoods, we must not only ask “where are the children” but how we as nation stand up against a government forcibly breaking up families. KRC will join the day of action that’s happening all across the nation on June 30th to tell Donald Trump and his administration to stop separating kids from their parents.
When: Saturday, June 30, 11am
