As a matter of policy, the US government is separating families who seek asylum in the US by crossing the border illegally.
Dozens of parents are being split from their children each day — the children labeled “unaccompanied minors” and sent to government custody or foster care, the parents labeled criminals and sent to jail.
This press conference aims at informing the Lansing Community on this inhumane practice and is part of more than 4,000 events being held across the United States on that day under the banner "Families Belong Together".
If you are a citizen who finds these practices questionable, please come to the event and help us to spread the voice.
The press conference will be held at Cristo Rey Church on June 14th. at 3:00 PM
