STOP TRUMP’S ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY DIRECTLY AFFECTING IMMIGRANT CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES
#ENDFAMILYSEPARATION #ABOLISHICE #ENDRACISM
WHAT IS HAPPENING :
“The government is calling this a new “Zero Tolerance” policy, which refers to the decision to prosecute and incarcerate all people who cross the border without documents. It is a punitive policy which seeks to deter immigration into this country, even if this means violating due process and the most basic human rights. But we should not forget the reasons why these fathers and mothers have fled to the United States, and the role this government has played in implementing policies in Latin America that have made hells in the countries immigrants come from. From our own experiences we know that many mothers who take the risk of crossing the border do it desperately after finding no alternative to protect their children. They come from countries with failing governments that have been imposed by the interventionist policies of the United States, which help only the interests of that government no matter the human consequences suffered by families that are forced to migrate.”
