THREAD: In response to recent family reunifications, read the statement from @agarciahayden, a CLINIC staff attorney: "Tomorrow, a mother from Honduras will be able to embrace the children she hasn't seen in three and a half years."
@ksieff, @mradamtaylor…
“This family was cruelly separated by the Trump administration. The trauma these children and mom have been through will take years to overcome, if ever. It took an army of lawyers, people of faith, and a change at the highest levels of government to reunite this one family.”
“After years of anguish, walking alongside people who our government treated with complete indignity and disrespect, we know that tomorrow will be just the beginning. There are many more reunifications to come.”

"They stand in stark contrast to the small-minded, xenophobic policies of the recent past.

The United States must return to observing international conventions and treaties, and being an example for human rights protection in the world."
"No human being should be sent back to harm. When our government shirked that responsibility for four years, people died. We can reclaim our reputation as a defender of human rights by ensuring that no person is deported, expelled or turned back to danger and death."
