Just a minor reminder that even while President Trump issued an govt buy officially ending his administration’s cruel plan of family members separation, 1000’s of small children have nevertheless to be reunited with their family members. Earlier this week, the Office of Justice explained they wouldn’t be reuniting all of the small children beneath 5-years-outdated as requested by the court docket because it was just way too darn tricky. (And for some rationale, these migrant moms and dads have been having a tricky time coming up with the dough to pay out for the expected DNA assessments.)
About half of the below-5-yr-olds are nonetheless (!) divided from their households. Little ones older than 5 like 6-calendar year-old Filemona — who is featured in this cartoon I did for KQED News — number in the countless numbers and are nonetheless waiting around to see their people again.
This abhorrent plan, that will ideally abide by every single solitary member of the Trump administration to the grave (and sushi institution), has been called “government-sanctioned baby abuse” by the president of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Let us not overlook that “zero-tolerance” and federal government-sanctioned child abuse are not in excess of. Share this cartoon significantly and extensive as a reminder. (And halt by my Patreon web site to go at the rear of the scenes with me and get other goodies.)
