LEGISLATIVE ALERT: Oppose

26 Jun 2018 7:30 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

As the chaos of how immigrant children and their parents will get reunited continues, there is an ongoing need to plan to attend the rallies that will support this goal.  Five major humanitarian advocacy organizations - ACLU, MoveOn, Human Rights Campaign, National Domestic Workers Alliance, and The Leadership Conference -  are planning 130 rallies around the country next Saturday, June 30 to stop the damage being done to immigrant families.  To find the rallies in your area go to https://act.moveon.org/event/families-belong-together/search/?source=ndwa .

NEW INCARCERATION PLAN: There is a new plan for immigrant children and their parents to be housed at military bases in Texas (https://www.military.com/daily-news/2018/06/25/pentagon-says-2-military-bases-house-immigrants.html) .  It appears that there will also be a renewed effort to separate children and parents, a plan that was temporarily stopped due to the massive opposition over the past two weeks.  It is crucial to continue to let our voices be heard.

ACTION: Please send the following message to ALL MEMBERS of the House or Senate ASAP (emails and phone numbers can be found at https://www.congress.gov/members?q={%22congress%22%3A%22115%22}):  “I am a member of the Clinical Social Work Association and a constituent.  Please oppose the practice of housing of immigrant children and parents on military bases. It appears that there is still a strong effort to keep immigrant children separated from parents in such settings, causing trauma to them. Tell ORR and DHHS to stop the cruel methods being used on immigrant children and their parents now.”

As always, let me know when you have sent your messages.
