The Trump administration’s decision to separate families at the border is cruel and hurts families that are already desperate to escape violence.
In the weeks since the administration publicly revealed its “zero tolerance” policy that separates children from their parents, we have seen the barbaric consequences.
We have seen and heard the heartbreaking, traumatizing experiences that children are being forced to go through by this administration’s cruel policy. And we at UnidosUS continue to fight for the end of family separation at the border and will continue to work with our partners in the civil rights community and bipartisan allies in Congress.
These stories are heartbreaking and we keep hearing more and more of them. We must keep fighting until families stop getting separated. #EndFamilySeparation #FamiliesBelongTogether https://t.co/WDKrVPxJuH

UPDATE: June 25, 2018 1:30 PM ET
Trump’s executive order may have formally ended the separation of families at the border. But we continue the fight against Trump’s continued separation of families made possible by his anti-Latino, anti-immigrant deportation policies.
Difficult work lies ahead. Every day the administration is working to undermine our legal immigration system and making already difficult situations worse for families fleeing for their lives.
However, there are still things that you can do to help. Visit these links to learn how you can support these families:
