As we have all heard, nearly 700 undocumented immigrants were arrested and detained in Forest, Mississippi, while working in chicken-packing plants. On the first day of school. So there was nobody to pick up their children, who were at school and in day care during the raid, at the end of the day. Can you imagine how terrified those children are?? And the parents?? This is despicable and strategic. And this on the heels of 2 horrific acts of domestic terrorism. This is wrong and not ok. We have seen this kind of thing before. So much of what is happening right now is not ok. @together.rising is fighting against these absolutely disgusting family separation policies.

THANK YOU YARA ~ for your heart and your willingness to speak the hurt and to name the action.
“How dare you kill my family //I’ve been at a loss for words in light of the tragic loss of life in El Paso and Dayton. All I can say is: HOW DARE YOU KILL MY FAMILY// we must continue to hold our elected officials accountable, we must hold each other accountable to carry with us and live in the legacies of everyone who is no longer with us // we must reinstate a sense of care by disassembling the white supremacy that has been allowed to run rampant in the USA since our inception.”
