This is still ongoing. And it will not stop until Trump is out of office or we DEMAND justice.

I’m signing because it is barbaric and traumatic to separate families ... especially children from their parents. What purpose is being served when innocent children are being caged and punished? Someone is making a profit ... God forgive them. ⛩

I believe separating families is evil and should never happen, it's a war crime to separate families, this is what Hitler did.

I agree that this madness needs to stop! And it WILL... whenever illegaL immigrants stop using children to gain pity from US citizens in order to gain entry illegally. And, then you want us to allow you to bring drugs and violence with you, or leave the gate wide open for criminals to freely come and go... in OUR country. It hasnt turned out to be so swell of a plan for YOUR country. That's why you are here in the first place. Your OWN citizens have allowed criminals to take over and NOW you are rallying for us to do the SAME?? NO thanks. We had to FIGHT for our freedom here.... our ancestors DIED for us to have these rights. They didn't come at NO COST. All we have asked in return is for you all to respect those rights as well.... And REPEATEDLY, you have failed to do so. To continue as we were, seeing the results of our kindness, seeing the present day UNGRATEFUL attitudes as if we OWE you anything. We owe you NOTHING. Mexico is NOT part of the United States. Neither are the other countries passing through Mexico to also illegally enter. You expect us to step to the side and allow illegal immigrants to treat our country with complete disregard. Again, I agree entirely for this separation of immigrant families to come to a halt. So again, I am compelled to state, to ALL illegal immigrants... please stop bringing your children to our borders, KNOWING they WILL be separated from you for an unknown amount of time. That is NEGLECT and emotional ABUSE from you, the parent. WHY woukd you subject your children to that? WHY are you abusing them in this way? All you have to do is file for citizenship....you MUST be LEGAL. We can NOT afford to provide endless care to you and your family. If you continue to come into our country and break our laws then we become an environment just like the one you are trying to escape. We can NOT even offer refuge for ANY of you.... if you destroy it beforehand. Allow us to HELP you the LEGAL way. Do NOT continue to take advantage and leave us with no choice other than locking you out entirely.

I'm signing this petition because I believe every life is sacred, and deserves to be protected and treated with dignity and compassion. We are all one human family, and that should transcend petty politics and borders.

Applying for asylum is not a criminal act in any other country on the planet. What kind of democracy licks up those coming to them for help?
