Whether one holds and/or blames Democratic or Republican views on the issue of undocumented immigrants either in this country or trying to get to this country, only the coldest of hearts could not recognize the inhumanity of separating children from their parents as families try to enter into the United States

Yet, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has confirmed that federal officials removed over 2,000 minors from adult custody between May 5 and June 9. In most cases, families are unaware of where their children have been sent.

Check out U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand‘s Senate floor speech calling on the Trump Administration to end this cruel practice and urge her colleagues in Congress to hold the Administration accountable and let families stay together.
