Stand in Solidarity with Unaccompanied Children: Send a Message of Love!
You would think politicians would unequivocally agree this a humanitarian crisis, but, unfortunately, not all do. Many Republicans are using children fleeing Central American violence to justify their opposition to immigrant youth and our families. It's nasty politics that’s fueling ugly hate. Children refugees are being met with the most unwelcoming anti-immigrant protests that are calling for their deportation.
Imagine a young child, already in distress, fleeing from gang violence and extortion only to be met by heartless & anti-immigrant protesters yelling dehumanizing obscenities.
We can’t let this be the only America they see.
That’s why United We Dream is in McAllen, Texas, where many of the immigrant youth are currently held --to stand in solidarity with unaccompanied children who cross the Texas border fleeing for their lives.
Thursday, July 10th starts our three-day sustained vigil outside of the McAllen, Texas shelter. We’ll be there to show them a America filled with love, and you can join us:
Leave them a message of love. We’ll write your messages on signs that we’ll hold during the vigil!
