June 30: Stand up for families and children separated by ICE!

Children in cages sleeping in space blankets

Don’t be fooled by Trump’s executive order. There is still no plan to reunite children that have already been separated from their families, and ICE still plans to keep families detained indefinitely. Trump’s plan is still to use families as a bargaining chip to convince Congress to enact laws that virtually eliminate legal immigration into the United States. It’s up to all of us to stand up for human rights on our southern border!

Join the Multnomah Democrats and Families Belong Together July 30th to rally for human rights!
