The separation of children from their families at the U.S./Mexico border is cruel and inhumane, to both the children and their parents. These children are being placed in over-crowded detention centres and cages, not being comforted, and will suffer the effects of this trauma throughout their entire lives. Canada must take a bold stand against this policy of family separation and end the Safe Third Country Agreement - the United States is not safe for those seeking asylum.
At the same time, we want Canada to continue to acknowledge its role in separating Indigenous families through residential schools and the continued practise of taking Indigenous children into foster care, as well as investigate and stop any detention of migrant children here in Canada.
