Let’s be clear about what this Executive Order does: Instead of imprisoning children in separate internment camps away from their parents, this administration will now imprison children in the same internment camps as their parents.
The Executive Order @realDonaldTrump just signed does nothing to end the “zero-tolerance policy” that automatically criminalizes any and all immigrants who cross the border without legal papers, including those seeking asylum.

It does nothing to end the imprisonment of children.
Children locked in “tender age” prison camps will still be locked in camps. Family detention camps.

We have no idea if or how the children who have already been stolen from their parents will be reunited.
This Executive Order was not an act of compassion. Locking families in in prison camps is not an act of compassion.

We are more determined than ever to rise up against this administration and demand an end to the zero-tolerance policy that criminalizes immigrants and their kids.
Women cannot stay silent while Trump tries to take a victory lap for “resolving” the very crisis of separated families that he himself created.

There is no victory. No resolution. People are still being kept in prison camps for no other reason than that they are undocumented.
The most compassion this president can muster is to cage families in the same prison camp. This is not enough. It is not enough to #EndFamilySeparation or #KeepFamiliesTogether. We must #EndFamilyDetention.

It is our responsibility as women, as people, to fight for this.
We have seen families dehumanized and detained in prison camps together before. Slavery. The holocaust. Japanese internment camps. We have seen this before.
Every step of the way, women have taken action to resist, to disobey unjust laws. We must do this again now. #WomenDisobey
We are putting our bodies on the line next Thursday, engaging in an act of mass women’s civil disobedience because it is not enough to incarcerate families together.

They should not be incarcerated at all.

#WomenDisobey to #EndFamilyDetention
Sign our petition demanding an end to the zero-tolerance policy that puts families in prison camps:

Then sign up to join us in the streets on 6/28. It’s time to escalate. #WomenDisobey.
