“So long as we have candidates of any party that are purchased and unduly influenced by special interests, we will not get medicare for all, we will not get minimum wage, we will not get fair and just immigration reform, we will not get worker protections, and we will not get trade deals that fairly treat the middle class. So long as corporations have an undue influence… we’re not going to address climate change as quickly as we need to, we aren’t going to get the infrastructure spending by unionized workers…”

For them, this is just one more step in a tragedy that began before they were forced to leave their home. The long, arduous journey to hope and safety in America turned into an even more tragic experience, care of the United States government. Thank God they are reunited. Now, they must heal. Who will help them though that process, and where will the money come from to pay for their mental health care?

He was told that hundreds of the children who have been separated from their parents will never be reunited with those parents. They will be “lost in the system.” This is, of course, what so many of us also believe. We are witnessing the systematic kidnapping of refugee children, perpetrated by our nation. We must continue to fight against this tragedy. Travel if you can, organize or attend marches, and continue to speak out. This is not a political issue. It is about the children.
