Statement from LUPE Fund on Family Separation at the U.S.-Mexico Border
The recent news and images reporting the cruel and senseless separation of immigrant children from their parents and family members are beyond heartbreaking. As an organization that represents Latinas, we are deeply disturbed with President Trump and his administration’s “zero-tolerance” migrant policy at the U.S.-Mexico border, and their tactics in dealing with immigrants as a whole.
