We demand that the Trump Administration stop separating immigrant children from their families IMMEDIATELY -- and account for what is happening to all children in immigration custody.

On June 30, we're gathering in Washington, DC and across the country to demand that we keep families together!

In response to the growing number of children and youth separated from their immigrant families at the border or their homes and the thousands of children who have been harmed or abused by Trump's immigration agencies, we are holding a non-violent rally and sit-in.

The Trump Administration is a threat to the lives and safety of millions of immigrant children. Trump’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents have torn babies from their mothers, run over, punched, and sexually abused children and Health and Human Services have lost track of thousands of children and youth in their custody. They are unfit to be in charge of children.

We demand that Trump’s immigration agencies stop the implementation of any policy that separates children and youth from their families and that the Administration enlist qualified social service agencies to ensure the well-being of children who are still in their custody or have gone missing.
