While President Trump is fanning flames around his manufactured “state of emergency” at the border, the real crisis is the horrific violence and persecution faced by people and families — like the mother in the photo above — fleeing their homes to seek safety.
Right now, the U.S. government is forcing children and families who seek asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border to wait in Mexico — where they are waiting in a hellish limbo. Many are on the streets with limited money, no access to lawyers, and are afraid for their safety and uncertain of their future.
The “Remain in Mexico” policy is a violation of both U.S. and international law and must be stopped.
imagine escaping violence and persecution, only to be left abandoned on the streets of border towns. Sign this important petition today >>
This strong-arm authoritarian tactic is just one way U.S. officials are threatening and deterring people — including children and families — from seeking asylum.
Children and their families — many who have fled unthinkable violence — deserve our compassion and support!
