New York, NY – Immigration advocates seeking to Abolish ICE gathered on July 31, 2018 outside the Alexander Hamilton Custom House in Bowling Green where DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Vice President Mike Pence attended a DHS conference, to demand that Secretary Nielsen and VP Pence reunite the families they cruelly separated through their anti-immigrant policies.

The Trump administration failed to reunify all of children taken away from their parents by the court-ordered deadline on July 26. Over 700 children remain separated from their parents. This protest is part of a national effort to keep the pressure on and hold the administration accountable until every family is reunited.

“The Trump administration officials responsible for separating families shouldn’t be able to go about their business as usual while there are children who don’t know where their parents are and when they will see them again,” said NYCLU organizer Drea Herrera. “This is a crisis of the Trump administration’s own making, and we won’t rest until every child is reunited with their parents.”

The family separation crisis is the direct result of the Trump administration policy choices, driven by the view that immigrants and asylum seekers deserve nothing but cruelty and punishment.

The ACLU filed a federal lawsuit earlier this year to stop family separation and to require the immediate reunion of all separated children and parents. On June 29, a federal judge issued a national injunction in our class-action lawsuit, requiring the reunification of thousands. Now, we must ensure the administration heeds the court’s ruling and the policy of family separation ends once and for all.
