End Family Separation Now

The Trump Administration is forcing parents to choose: either be separated from their children or have their kids be exposed to dangerous conditions and COVID-19 in detention. 

A federal judge recently demanded ICE release children from their family jails immediately, writing that they are “on fire.” While the federal judge has now ordered the release of children from these jails by July 17, they only have jurisdiction over the children in these jails — not their parents or caretakers.

Not only can all of us speak out to demand the release of these children and their families, there are several organizations providing critical legal services to try to free the families for us to support. These legal service providers on the frontlines are vital because ICE may use this court order to attempt to tear children away from their parents again, as they did only a few weeks ago. 

Join groups on the ground that are fighting to make sure the judge’s order is followed and that families can remain safe and together. Take action today and help #FreeTheFamilies.
