Separating mothers from their children does not represent the values we teach our children or aspire to as a nation. The Trump administration’s anti-immigration and anti-refugee actions harm our families, communities, economy and country.

I had a friend who had a lady who helped her take care of her elderly father and it slipped out she was here illegally. She came here to have a better life for her son, away from the violence and the corruption. She panicked when the information came out and left her son with a friend and returned to Mexico to try get the paperwork so she could be here legally. She could not get back here because of Trump’s immigration policies. So her son is without a mother and she is stuck there.

This is so cruel and inhumane. We can’t allow this to go on.
