WERE YOU THERE?
Hundreds of thousands of people, young and old, took to the streets in more than 750 locations across the country Saturday to protest the current administration’s cruel policy of separating migrant children from their parents. Braving the summer heat, people showed up everywhere from Maine to California and Washington State to Texas, chanting “no baby jails” and “Where are the children?”
The crisis has been building for weeks and more and more people are waking up to what the government is trying desperately to hide. These families and especially the innocent children are being treated inhumanely and are being denied their Constitutional rights. We still have an uphill battle to insure that the government makes this right. But Saturday was a start. This is beyond politics. It’s an issue of human rights. So to all of you, who took the time to show up, thank you. Progressives unite; push forward.
