A Snapshot of Family Separation Through The Eyes of A Child
Nearly one year ago today, the Administration introduced a policy that resulted in the separation of thousands of families at our border. While the images of children being ripped from their parents’ arms has faded from public view– the truth is, it’s still happening today.
Through our 2019 video diary “Alone,” we challenge you to consider the trauma and heartbreak that has been – and continues to be — inflicted on countless children at our border. I hope you’ll take a moment to accompany this child on his harrowing journey – and continue to advocate boldly for an America that protects children and families at our border.
Children should never be used as leverage for political gain. Protecting children and defending their legal and humanitarian rights is critical to preserving our moral standing as a nation.Krish O'Mara VignarajahPresident and CEO, LIRS
