If you're like me, you've been absolutely heart-broken reading the news surrounding what has been going on in Texas. The Trump Administration's policy has inhumanely separated children from their parents, placing them in camps reminiscent of the 1940's. These families have traveled thousands of miles from their homes to escape poverty and violence only to be stripped of their dignity by the U.S Government.
Reading about this issue made me feel anguish. It made me feel helpless. While promoting articles and spreading awareness are important, there is so much more to be done. This is why I wanted to raise money to donate to the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES). This organization is at the front-lines during this crisis. Any donation helps!
In addition, if you feel strongly about this issue, please call your congressman to voice your opposition to the current policy.
