The Department of homeland security statistics that between April 19th and May 31st this year, 1995 immigrant children on the US Mexico border were forced to take away from their parents.
Since April this year, border enforcement agencies in the United States have adopted a zero tolerance policy for illegal immigrants and forced them to be separated from their minor children. This led to opposition from the United States, its neighbors and even the United Nations.
According to the CNN, about a thousand women were protesting in Washington on the same day, and congressional police arrested about 575 people on the charges of illegal protests, including Democratic congressman preamilla Jaya Pal, Washington.
Jaya Pal, born in India, said in social media that she was honored to be arrested when he protested against Trumps zero tolerance policy. She said that we fight for the freedom of our families and fight for our children with our parents.
Democratic Senator Tan Mei Duckworth, with his two - month - old daughter, visited the protest people, and she said I wanted to express my support to them and not imagine what would happen to my daughter if something happened to the children who were forced to be separated from their mothers. Three Democratic senators from New York, Oregon and Massachusetts also expressed their support for the protest.
Similar protests were held on the same day in the United States. Trump conducted a survey of Foxconn projects in Wisconsin, where a large number of protesters gathered. First lady Mela Nia visited Arizona on the same day to see the children separated from their parents who were forced to enter the country illegally. (finish)
