After our government deliberately abused young children by separating them from their families, it has abandoned negotiations to help the traumatized heal. We cannot allow this to happen without a fight: Submit your comment to the Biden Administration Now.

During the Trump administration, the government cruelly engaged in the systematic separation of over 5,500 migrant families coming to the United States. The ACLU was there from the start, filing a national class-action lawsuit that successfully blocked the policy. Thousands of families have been reunited as a result.

However, many families remain separated to this day. Our latest report shows the parents of hundreds of children have still not been found – and the irreparable trauma inflicted upon all the families is everlasting.

The work to undo this damage must be an urgent priority for the Biden administration.
