From Michael Seifert, ACLU Brownsville:
Friends, it’s been one year since the Trump administration began the policy “Remain in Mexico” (or MPP). Today, over 60,000 asylum seekers have been forcefully returned to Mexico to wait there for their U.S. immigration hearings.
Many migrant families are living for months in shelters or tent camps facing endless hurdles, and struggling to get basic necessities.
We can’t accept this as the norm. Since people are pushed out of the country and are “out of sight”, it is easier to forget we are complicit in the violence they experience.
Continue to demand an end to this policy and support those people who are stuck in Mexico waiting.
These wish lists are full of needed items that will be going directly to the shelters/ tent camps where these families are at. It takes only a few minutes to buy an item!
*lists are only open for a week*
