Half-measures and political posturing are unacceptable. Children are being thrown in cages. Taken from their parents. Having their shoelaces and toys taken from them. Tossed in cages. Having their diapers changed by other children.
Let that sink in.
Email your Senators right now and demand legislative action to reunite these children with their parents and to NEVER throw another child in a cage.
Mothers and fathers packed up their children along with what little they have and embarked on a perilous journey in search of a better life. This is the story that began what we know today as America. And it is the same story that is being turned into a dystopian nightmare on our southern border. Our immigration system is broken, we've known that for quite some time. The can has been kicked down the road while Republicans have sown fear and hatred to win elections.
It's time to end that. It's time to decide what our values are, who we want to be as people and as a nation.
While it may take more than a few days to enact meaningful change, we can no longer afford to wait for the Washington establishment to act on an issue they have ignored for far too long.
Join me in demanding that your Senators introduce meaningful, compassionate action to truly reform our broken immigration system instead of allowing it to continue to be a desperate, fear-mongering ploy for votes and children held hostage to politics.
