ProPublica Audio Sheds Light On The Trauma Being Inflicted On Children Separated From Their Parents

Kids In Need of Defense

Jun 19, 2018 — Our petition continues to grow and we could not be more grateful for all of your support! We are now over 85,000 signatures, and as this cruel and inhumane policy of family separation continues to move forward, your voice and action is needed now more than ever.

As many of you may have heard or seen, an extremely disturbing audio recording was released last night by ProPublica. In it, you can hear 10 young Central American children inside a U.S. Customs and Border Protection Facility desperately crying out for their parents as an agent mercilessly jokes in Spanish, “We have an orchestra here.”

This has to end NOW! We must continue to mount pressure on the Trump Administration to end this abhorrent policy and put a definite end to family separation.

As the aunt of one of this children heard in this horrific audio tells ProPublica, “I know she’s not an American citizen. But she’s a human being. She’s a child. How can they treat her this way?”

Thank you for your continued support.
