“I wake up from my sleep crying because I remember he was taken from me.” - EF from Guatemala, who is being held in TX and believes her son is in NY.

Translated declaration here:…
“When I am able to call (my son), he is not able to give me information about his circumstances because he is only 2 years old and too young to communicate.” - MGU from Guatemala, being held in CA

The experience of these parents and thousands like them who remain unheard are why we are marching this Sunday in Tornillo TX.

Let’s be a voice for the voiceless and demand that families are reunited & free!
