We need Congress to do everything within their power to end the separation of families at the border. Since April 19 this policy has already separated nearly 2,000 children from their parents. We cannot remain silent while this cruel, unjust and unnecessary policy is implemented. We speak out in Jesus name — because as his followers we cannot remain silent, particularly as our leaders have used Scripture to defend this policy.
Congress can urge the Administration to reverse this policy, and come up with legislative solutions that would end such cruelty. We ask that they do so quickly, decisively and make it so that no future administration can ever separate children from asylum seeking or immigrant parents again.
We know that God is with these children and parents, and grieves deeply at what is being done to his most vulnerable children, so we too stand with them.
