We cannot remain silent as families seeking a new life in the U.S. are torn apart and children are separated from their parents.

The Trump administration’s oppressive immigration policies also have a direct bearing on LGBTQ people because of the decision to no longer allow asylum for victims of domestic abuse. LGBTQ people may be persecuted by their families or other individuals in the countries they are attempting to leave.

The Chicago Protest Against Family Separations at the Border is hosted by Indivisible Chicago, Our Revolution Illinois, Chicago Resistance to Family Separations, Indivisible Illinois, Gather Activism, Heartland Alliance’s National Immigrant Justice Center, ACLU of Illinois and Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights.
