    End Family Detention/Familias Unidas

    End Family Detention and family separation.

    Join us in Rome on the sidewalk on the corner of Via Veneto and Via Leonida Bissolati, directly across from the American Embassy.

    While Trump has decided that agents will no longer separate children from their families at the border, his immigration policy continues to inflict pain and suffering on thousands of people.

    There is still no plan in place to reunite those families that have already been separated, and hundreds of forced unaccompanied minors are now being put in foster care in other states while their parents sit in detention in Texas. Scores of other human rights are being inflicted so that Trump can use these families as a negotiating tool to get his wall. We cannot allow these atrocities to continue.

    Please join us as we protest the administration’s immigration policy and fight to help reunite these innocent children with their parents. Bring your posters, signs and your voice so that we can send a message that Americans who live abroad will not stand by while our home nation inflicts pain on our fellow humans.

    Please wear white as a statement of solidarity with our cause and post photos on social media with the hashtags:
