As I'm sure you guys know, migrant families arriving at the US-Mexico border are being separated from each other, the parents are being prosecuted for attempting to cross the border illegally, and the children are being sent to “holding facilities” where they remain indefinitely. Some of these children are less than a year old and/or still breastfeeding.
I can't even begin to imagine the terror and heartache that is being inflicted on these people. And for what crime? Attempting to seek asylum for themselves and their children. Where they hoped to find safety and refuge, they are finding only cruelty and disrespect.
If the American government will not show them compassion, it is up to the international community to condemn the treatment of these asylum-seekers as unconstitutional and inhumane.
Shame on you @realdonaldtrump
and shame on ANYONE who continues to support him and his policies. “This petition urges the Government of Canada speak up on behalf of your constituents in renouncing these actions and call on the UN to spare the children irreparable trauma.”
You can also write to your MP to ask them to stand up for this issue on behalf of their constituents.
