This might be the most heinous act of the Trump administration yet.
Children who come to our borders seeking asylum with their parents — a protected right under international law — have been forcibly separated from their families.
This is a practice that has been recently implemented by the Department of Homeland Security. This is not a law that Congress needs to change. It is a needlessly cruel and inhumane policy that Trump could end right now.
Children, the most vulnerable among us, deserve to be with their families, not scarred by the trauma of living in cages at detention centers.
Join us in a call to action with the East West Alliance, along with many concerned mothers, fathers, siblings, teachers, leaders, friends. During this press conference, a Coachella Valley-wide town hall meeting will be announced to discuss this serious and very alarming policy.
Residents of all desert cities are invited to attend and express their concerns. We need to make our voices heard loud and clear — family integrity must be protected.
WHEN: 10 a.m. Friday, June 15.
WHERE: Fountain of Life, 68700 Avenida Lalo Guerrero (in front of City Hall), Cathedral City.
SPEAKERS: Amalia DeAztlan, Megan Beaman-Jacinto, Father Howard Lincoln, Josie Diaz, Lynne O'Neill, Luis Nolasco.
