Ask the International Criminal Court, charge President Trump with Crimes Against Humanity.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

As a concerned citizen of the United States, we ask that the International Criminal Court please consider swift action in holding President Trump, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions and involved members of the Trump administration, as well as the Republican Congress, accountable for Crimes Against Humanity as described in Rome Statute, in regards to the illegal abduction of children from their parents who are seeking asylum at the southern borders of the U.S.

The announced withdrawal from the U.N. Human Rights Council does not preclude the United States from adhering to human rights policies agreed to by the United Nations with other member countries, no more than it would alleviate adherence to the Geneva Convention, thereby freeing the US to commit war crimes with impunity. 

The children are being collected by the thousands in make-shift concentration camps by militarized government officers of the Department of Homeland Security, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (aka, I.C.E.). They are being transported hundreds and thousands of miles form their collection site and scattered across the country with no real oversight or protection. The possibility of abuse or worse is a real possibility and there is no way of verifying the safety and condition of the imprisoned children. It is understood that some children are being held by private companies for profit. 

The mental and emotional anguish alone will leave lifelong scars. Parents of the children do not know where their children are, how long they will be held, have no way of knowing how to be reunited with them, or even where that might happen. Many are reported to have been told that they will never see their children again.This is incredibly cruel and inhumane. This illegal activity must be stopped, and the people involved must be criminally charged and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Tyranny and the destruction of democracy and civilized governance must not be tolerated from any country, not even one of the strongest. 

At no time in recent history has there been a better and more deserved opportunity to show that the world will not bow down to any power when it comes to protecting human rights and justice and that the United Nations and the ICC will ensure that the laws even apply to countries as powerful as the United States. Otherwise, the laws can mean nothing in such countries as Pakistan, Nigeria or Sri Lanka. The eyes of the world are upon you. Please honor your obligations. And for the children’s sake, please act with urgency.
