Take Action for Human Rights

Stop Separating and Detaining Families

 

The Trump Administration has been forcibly separating families seeking safety in the U.S. These families are fleeing persecution and horrific violence in their home countries and coming to the US seeking safety.

Instead of being able to ask for asylum with dignity and security, they are treated cruelly. Children have been forcibly taken from their parents at the border and put into government-run shelters, often hundreds of miles away from their parents as Amnesty International researchers documented on a recent mission along the U.S.-Mexico border.

President Trump signed an executive order on June 20th that he claims would end family separation. Don’t be fooled: his order does nothing to end the policy of family separation or reunite the over 2,000 children who have been forcibly separated from their parents and doesn’t stop the policy of prosecuting families seeking safety.

The Administration’s answer is to detain families in prolonged detention instead. That isn’t the answer. Take action stop separating and detaining families now!
