Families Belong Together.

When a young child is separated from loving parents and held in government custody, the wounds of trauma are deepened every day.

Despite court-ordered deadlines, the Trump administration is doing an abysmal job of reuniting children with their parents. Make no mistake – President Trump and Attorney General Sessions put this "zero tolerance policy" in place. They made the choice to tear these children away from their families.

As a mom, I am outraged at a policy that rips innocent children out of the arms of their parents. As an American, I condemn this administration's cold-hearted and inhumane treatment of people seeking asylum to escape from unthinkable violence or abject poverty. And as an elected official, I will never stop fighting for these children.

My grandparents crossed an ocean seeking a better life for their children in the United States of America. That's what we stand for in this country: a better life, a peaceful life.

The Trump administration deliberately created this mess when they instituted their separation policy. It's time for them to reunite families. Not later. Now.

Thank you for standing with me,

Suzanne
