If you want an easy way to contact your senator or representative or other congressmen about the issue of separating children from their parents at the border, it is given at the end of this heartbreaking posting of the sounds of children being taken from their parents and descriptions of those who have witnessed the process. We all need to be responsible to DO SOMETHING!!!!
Thanks to the media outlet Propublica, we have access to the above video. Please be aware that the sound of the children’s wailing as they are being separated from their parents seeking asylum at the US southwest border, are heartbreaking.
This is a new protocol that was started with President Donald Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions with his April 6, 2018 memo. As per Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), the president can end this practice of separating children from the parents with one phone call. Telling the migrants to apply for asylum at the US designated points of entry is not a realistic direction as most peoples are being turned away. There are stories about peoples waiting weeks to gain entry.
As per international law, it is NOT illegal for peoples fleeing danger, persecution, war like circumstances, to ask for asylum.
Any other republican talking point other than the above…
