Trump may have forgotten them, but we haven't

The Trump administration is 100 percent responsible for creating a monstrous situation for children who were separated from their families at our southern border.

And, despite the Justice Department's best efforts to shed responsibility, a federal court ordered the administration to reunite children with their parents.

So how's that working out? Not so well.

Hundreds of children, including kids under age five, are still in government custody with no plan for locating their parents.

Experts agree: the trauma inflicted on these children will cause lasting psychological damage. With every passing day, the lifelong wounds deepen. We cannot stand by while our own government irreparably harms innocent children.

Trump and his corrupt team of advisors have moved on to corroding American values in other arenas. Now it's left to the rest of us to make sure these kids are not forgotten.

Join me in supporting the organizations helping the families get legal representation and other critical assistance. Let's give these kids a fighting chance.
