June 14th: New Round of National Marches to Take Place As Opposition Against Family Separation Policies Grows

Over 3,500 people have signed up on familiesbelong.org

USA – On June 14th, 2018, San Jose will join cities across America in holding a Families Belong Together rally scheduled for 6-7:30pm at San Jose City Hall (200 East Santa Clara Street, San Jose).  The rally will include speakers and an opportunity for an open mike at this peaceful event.  "We are thrilled to be joining a national movement of Americans who are outraged at the separation of children from their families on our borders. San Jose stands in solidarity with these families and we will not stop speaking out until this abhorrent policy is stopped," said Heather Valentine, lead organizer of the San Jose event.

This new round of protests follows a massive day of action on June 1st, with an expected increase in the number of people demonstrating outrage about the current crisis of families being separated at the border and of children being put in detention.

Over 3,500 parents, grandparents, and neighbors are self-organizing local events in cities across the country through the website familiesbelong.org created by Families Belong Together, a group of concerned citizens who oppose the cruel, inhumane, and unjustified separation of children from their parents along the U.S. border with Mexico and at other ports of entry into the U.S.

National organizers of Families Belong Together expressed the following: “As parents, it is unconscionable that the US government is actively tearing apart immigrant families. They are victims of violence, hunger, and poverty and our government’s actions re-violate them, causing untold damage. Children as young as 18 months are torn from their mothers’ arms by our own government. This is violent abuse and as concerned citizens and voters we state, unequivocally, that this is not in line with American values. We oppose the inhumane policies of the Trump Administration, Border Patrol, ICE, and other federal immigration agencies. We are disheartened by the lack of leadership in Congress whose job is to be a check on the federal government when it overreaches and abuses its power. We are calling for immediate reforms and an end to this barbarism.”

The National Domestic Workers Alliance, one of the organizations that led the #FamiliesBelongTogether National Day of Action on June 1st, is supporting this second round of events on June 14th.

“The outrage and opposition will only keep growing if the Administration continues this cruelty of separating families,” says Jess Morales Rocketto, Political Director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and Chair of its immigration campaign “We Belong Together”. “Families belong together. This shouldn’t be up for debate. No one should accept babies being torn from their mothers’ arms or children being locked away from their parents. Congress has the power to stop this inhumane practice.”

Families Belong Together Rally 6/14 6pm

There is a rally this Thursday at 6pm at San Jose City Hall. Please joins us to oppose the cruel, inhuman, and unjustified separation of children from their families along the US border and other points of entry.

Families Belong Together opposes the cruel, inhumane and unjustified separation of children from their parents along the U.S. border with Mexico and at other ports of entry into the U.S. We protest the conditions in which these children are kept. We protest the irreversible trauma that has already been perpetrated on these children and their parents for the crime of seeking a better life.

To separate immigrant families, victims of violence, hunger and poverty, is to re-violate them. Children as young as 18 months are torn from their mother’s arms by the U.S. government. This is violent abuse. These families are victimized again by the government to which they turn for help. Families Belong Together opposes the inhumane policies of the Trump Administration, Border Patrol, and I.C.E. and calls for immediate reform.

Please join us here, or request an invite.

Familias Unidas, No Divididas rechaza la separación cruel, inhumana e injustificada de niños de sus padres a lo largo de la frontera de los Estados Unidos con México y en otros puertos de entrada a los EE. UU. Protestamos por las condiciones en las que se mantienen a estos niños. Protestamos contra el trauma irreversible que ya se ha perpetrado contra estos niños y sus padres por el delito de buscar una vida mejor.

Separar a las familias inmigrantes, familias víctima de la violencia, el hambre y la pobreza es volver a violentarlas. El gobierno de los Estados Unidos separa a niños de tan solo 18 meses de los brazos de sus madres. Esto es abuso. Estas familias son nuevamente victimizadas por el gobierno al que acuden en busca de ayuda. Familias Unidas, No Divididas se opone a las políticas inhumanas de la administración de Donald Trump, Protección Fronteriza y I.C.E. y pide una reforma inmediata.
