Today marks three months since the Trump administration proudly announced its policy of ripping apart families at the border. Over 2,000 children were torn apart and hundreds remain permanently orphaned because of the administration and DHS Secretary Nielsen’s willful neglect. Thousands of you rose up to decry this practice and as a result, it is no longer official U.S. policy. However, the trauma of what happened endures and the abuse continue in detention centers.
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is a main culprit in this crisis. Under her oversight, nothing has been done about the 1300 charges of ICE agent’s sexual and physical abuse of women and children. Children have been drugged in detention centers and mothers, psychologically tortured. At least one child has died after being released from detention due to strong evidence of complete maltreatment. As this crisis rages, one thing is clear: it’s time for Nielsen to resign.
Sign the petition to demand DHS Secretary Nielsen resign immediately.
