People across the country are rallying against the current administration’s policy of separating children from their parents who seek asylum in the United States. On Thursday, June 13, New Jersey residents gathered outside of Representative Chris Smith’s office in Freehold to demand action.
Casa Freehold’s Executive Director, Rita Dentino, summarized the situation for those in attendance and asked that we imagine, for a moment, what it would be like to live through such experience.
Casa Freehold is appalled at the separation of children from their parents at our Southern border. We are part of a national campaign demanding that this practice end, that parents and children be reunited, and that those seeking asylum be allowed to move forward with their cases.
Please support this campaign, which includes the National Domestic Workers Alliance, the ACLU, United We Dream, Move On, and Moms Rising. Grassroots organizations like ourselves continue to welcome refugee families. Four have arrived in the past few weeks.
