Here is the presentation of your editor,
Thank you for being here today. This is a critical day in our efforts.
My Name is Duane Campbell. I am a co-chair of the Immigrants’ Rights Committee of Democratic Socialists of America.
Let us be clear.
Seizing children from their parents at the border is immoral.
This issue before us is one of human decency. Under the Trump Administration ICE has developed a new policy of deliberately separating families of immigrants and refugees. They are separating parents from their children as a form of collective punishment. They are violating both due process and human rights.
Many of us have seen the photos and the video. We are here to disrupt the Immoral narrative that terrorizes children for political gain.
The United Nation says so.
The U.S. Catholic Bishops say so.
Most religious communities say so.
Trump, and Republicans in Congress have rejected a way to fix DACA and protect Dreamers. Now they are forcing a vote on two cruel bills that hold dreamers hostage to the Trump Administration’s deportation machine .
