FAMILIES DESERVE TO BE REUNITED, PROTECTED AND PROVIDED RELIEF NOW
In 2018 the Trump administration enacted the zero tolerance policy and cruelly separated 5, 500 migrant families. Faith leaders have stood alongside Black and brown organizers to denounce this immoral policy and demand justice for all immigrant communities.
However, families remain separated to this day and the trauma inflicted upon all those families is everlasting. The Biden Administration must prioritize making this a nation where every person is respected and every family can thrive.
As people of faith we believe human dignity, family and loving our neighbor are sacred values. Our teachings and traditions are clear that these values apply to immigrants. Our laws should honor these principles.
The Biden administration and a task force on family separation is just the start. That's why we are urging the Biden administration to commit to the following actions in its first 100 days – join us by signing the petition:
In order for us to reckon with the systematic separation of thousands of families – and ensure that no future administration will ever erroneously consider it as a deterrent measure again, our government must develop a holistic approach.
Please sign our petition and urge the Biden administration to take action now.
