We demand Juliet's immediate release, we demand answers, and we demand an end to family separation--once and for all!
Why is this important?
Baby Juliet was separated from her dad on December 28th after crossing the border at Calexico, and has been in detention ever since. The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), charged with processing immigrant and refugee minors, refuses to release her from an undisclosed shelter in San Antonio, Texas.
Juliet was ripped from her father's arms six months after the Trump administration signed an executive order to end the family separation policy, and a federal judge ordered for children to be reunited. The total number of children separated from a parent or guardian is unknown, according to a January 2019 report from the U.S. Office of the Attorney General. Baby Juliet is now among the countless children who have been separated from their families for no other reason than the current administration’s extremist agenda to criminalize and punish migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers.
We cannot be silent as this administration continues inflicting violence and terror on communities seeking refuge in the United States. We demand that the U.S. Government stop separating families once and for all! #FreeJuliet #FreeOurFuture
