Trump’s Executive Order STILL Jails Children and Their Parents

Atlanta, Georgia, June 20, 2018 — Donald Trump is trying to clean up the mess he made after months of separating children from their families and locking them up in detention camps. He may have caved in under political pressure today with this executive order, but Trump and his administration are still responsible for putting children in cages.

Below is a response by the Value Our Families coalition:

“Trump’s new Executive Order does nothing to solve the inhumane treatment of families on the border. He still is putting children in jails. Trump is only covering up the mess he made because he came under political pressure. Families belong in communities, not cages. Trump must end the cruel mistreatment and disgrace in our country.”
