Do Not Jail Families

In April of this year, Jeff Sessions and Secretary Nielsen declared that the Department of Justice and Homeland Security would separate immigrant children from their parents. Since that time, they have created 2,000 orphans, generating an anguish that could only please the devil and his minions.

This is being done in the name of the United States of America. In our name.

The executive order signed today is an evil response to the cries of children captured on audio tape this past week–keeping families together in indefinite incarceration offends every ethical and moral norm of this nation.

How to help:

Pressure:

  1. Please do everything within your power to contact your congressional representatives to register your contempt for this action and your expectation that they will speak out against the policy.
  2. Contact your clergy, your community leaders and anyone else that comes to mind to be a part of this action.
  3. We have people who have connections with those who contribute large amounts of money to the campaigns of many elected official. If you representative is not a part of this battle, you might consider that tactic.
  4. If your representative has been vocal and against the separation of families, please offer them support.
