BREAKING: ORR has agreed to release Mari, age 10, to her brother after 10 months of government internment in a West Texas camp. Mari will be released on January 6th for a grand family reunion. Please welcome Mari, our newest American, to the Land of the Free.
Mari was separated from her brother at the Texas border in February, 2019, because the government refused to accept they were siblings, despite Mari's tears, and having to be pried from Jeiner's arms. She was disappeared in the child internment system.…
Ever wonder what you can do to help #FreeTheChildeen? Mari's is a case study of how the #Resistance is making a difference. Jeiner was refused contact with his sister for 8 months, until we were hired by Mari's Guatemalan mother. We submitted reunification applications... the government but were rebuffed as Jeiner's living quarters did not meet its specifications. We put put out a call for help to the #Resistance so that we could house Mari and Jeiner, and you came through in spades.
This case shows how the government continues to separate families along the border, and to disappear children into its internment system. It also shows how one person like you can fight back and make a difference in a child's life. But we are not done fighting...
...We have taken on MPP as it rears its ugly fascist head, tearing at vulnerable refugee families seeking the protection called for by our asylum laws. We fight them at the laughable tent courthouse in Laredo, but our families need your help.
