President Trump’s Executive Order on Family Separation Is Not The Answer

Kids In Need of Defense

Jun 26, 2018 — We have now reached over 430,000 signatures demanding an end to the abhorrent policy of family separation. Thank you all so very much for making your voices heard loud and clear on this horrific policy that has no place in our society.

As you may have heard, President Trump announced his plans for family reunification and they fall far short of fixing the crisis he created. Meanwhile, thousands of families remain separated with plans to reunify them only beginning, and with no clear timeline.

KIND’s Wendy Young notes in CNN that “the process to find one's child is incredibly challenging, and what I fear is that it might, in some cases, be impossible.” This is unacceptable, and we fear that family separations will continue for a very long time. Family detention and separation MUST END!

Continue spreading the word and encouraging others to step up and say NO to this horrific policy.

Thank you once again for your continued support.
