Separation of families
We are witnessing the separation of families at our borders. Babies are being taken away from their parents. We all know that America has a history of separating families. This has to stop.
Here in Texas, there are families that are legally seeking asylum only to have their children ripped from them and in some cases their children are detained thousands of miles from their families.
Will you help bring attention to this in your city? Please let people know that both parties have contributed to these policies and actions that have gone unchecked. Let them know what the Green Party's position is on immigration. Are you a candidate running? Please speak out about this and what policies you would change or enact if you were elected. We also have judges that deny over 90 percent of the asylum cases that come before them. Applying for citizenship has taken some people over 20 years. Border Patrol is blocking possible asylum seekers from crossing over as well.
I live in Texas and our communities are hurting. We are organizing and will be marching on the detention centers and taking actions across the state. Let's not remain silent on this. Please help to bring awareness to this. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
