Locking up children and throwing away the key

You know the horrors Donald Trump is inflicting on migrant families, families seeking asylum, and their children.

This is the president and administration who literally took small children crying from their parents' arms. Who has said they won't give flu vaccines to migrants even though a number of children have died from the flu. They told a court they shouldn't have to provide children in their custody with soap.

They're only trying to make things worse: this week, the Trump administration announced its new child imprisonment rule to allow them to lock up children indefinitely.

Children. Locked up in jail for... years?

Simply horrible. Outrageous. Vile.

Sign the petition and tell Donald Trump: Jailing children indefinitely is cruel and wrong.
