Fighting against human rights violations at the southern border:

What's taking place at our southern border shocks the conscience.

It is evil, cruel, and immoral.

Children should not be used as political pawns for reckless immigration enforcement policy.

We should be prioritizing the protection of families and our borders in a humane and thoughtful way. People should be treated with compassion and respect.

It's time for a new approach to immigration reform; it's time to reunite the families who have been separated at the border; it's time to abolish ICE in its present form and start over with a responsible, humane agency to deal with border control; and it's time to hold this administration accountable by voting them out of office.

There are many organizations fighting against the human rights violations at the border. Visit their websites to learn more and to see how you can help:

  • RAICES is the largest immigration nonprofit in Texas offering free and low-cost legal services to immigrant children and families.

  • KIND — Kids in Need of Defense — has been leading advocacy efforts for kids in immigration detention.

  • The Women's Refugee Commission is leading national efforts against family separation and child detention to preserve access to asylum, increase use of alternatives to detention, and improve detention conditions.

  • The ACLU Immigrants' Rights Project is litigating these (and other) policies at the border.

  • Al Otro Lado serves indigent deportees, migrants, and refugees in Los Angeles and Tijuana, Mexico.
