The US’s Immigration Policy is on Thin ICE

Your DGB for today is to call your elected representatives and demand they do something about ICE’s policy of removing children from their parents at the border and housing them in what looks like dog kennels.

This administration has decided that in an effort to make immigration to the US less appealing to brown people, they are going to remove kids - including babies - from their parents at the border. These children are getting physically torn from mom and dad and then, according to Chief of Staff John Kelly, put into foster care “or whatever.” That should be disturbing to everyone with a heart.

It’s time for you to get on the horn to your senators and members of congress. Tell them we’re not okay with this kind of treatment of people simply asking for sanctuary. Whether or not it’s legal, it certainly isn’t ethical or moral to split up families as a deterrent to legal immigration.
