National Faith Leader Denounces Trump Administration’s Immoral Family Separation Raids

 

Washington, D.C. -- The Trump administration’s recently announced plan to send armed ICE agents into thousands of homes to tear families apart is expected to begin this Sunday. President Trump is stoking fear and chaos in immigrant communities.

 

Rev. Jennifer Butler, CEO, Faith in Public Life:

“The Trump administration’s cruel family separation raids and deportations expected to begin on Sunday are immoral. As a pastor, I am outraged that our government would terrorize families and children for political gain on a Sunday, a holy day. This evil, vicious plan is an escalation of the president’s white supremacist agenda. Faith and community leaders will respond with unflinching defense of our immigrant family members and neighbors. Our hearts cry out, but our resolve in the face of Trump ripping families apart is strong. We need to invest in common sense and humane solutions, not more camps and more detentions and deportations.”
