Don’t Separate Children From Their Parents at the Border

Target: Thomas D. Homan, Deputy Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement

Goal: Stop splitting up families over immigration battles.

Over 700 children have been separated from their parents as they cross the border into the United States, a shockingly inhumane development by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The White House has been vocal in their supporting of family separation, a move that is said to be a “great deterrent” against immigration. Reports of devastated children keep coming in from the shelters where these children are placed, run by the Office of Refugee Resettlement.

Separating families is directly responsible for immense amounts of trauma that occur during the immigration process, many children unsure if they’ll ever see their families again. Most of the families in this situation wind up seeking asylum and are literally begging to stay, as their home situation was far too dangerous to return to. These children have been through and enough, if you stand with the side of families staying together, sign the petition below to demand a change immediately.


Dear Director Homan,

In what brutal fantasy is it ever okay to separate a crying toddler from their mother? When is it acceptable to tell a small child that they may never see their parents again? Why would you ever create these opportunities for heartbreak and why would you do it over 700 times in the last year alone?

Separating children from their parents is absolutely unacceptable unless there is strict evidence of abuse or neglect, yet none of these parents fit that profile. Allowing so many children to believe their parents are gone forever should be considered child abuse and endangerment. We demand that you put an end to this senseless brutality at once.

    TO SEPERATE FAMILIES IS ATROCIOUS. THAT LITTLE FUCKING TURD CALLED, JEFF “the midget” SESSIONS needs to be dealt with PERSONALLY by those who hate his fucking guts. Baseball bats would be great gift for ole Jeffy.
    Its bad enough our country is now a joke but to do this to families trying to run from danger. Send Sessions to where they came from and let him live there.

  2. Don’t agreed with this b.s. seperate trump from his family and see how he likes it! Damn the first lady should stand up for them!

  3. This is terrifying for a child to be torn from its parents. They are coming here hoping for a better way of life & to have this happen is terrible both for the parents as well as the children. Unless they are criminals they should be allowed to come to America. At one time our families were all immigrants. Do not do this to those who are trying to better themselves. And keep families together.
