Say no to Gov. Abbott separating families at the border!

Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced he wants to “start arresting everybody coming across the border.”

Let’s be clear: What Governor Abbott is proposing sounds like Family Separations 2.0— a replica of the disastrous Trump-era policy that led to border patrol and ICE ripping children for their parents’ arms. 

We saw how tragic that was. The 2018 family separation cris was fueled precisely because the Trump Administration criminalized adults with its “Zero Tolerance” policy.

Gov. Abbott may be fine with taking children from their parents, but border communities are not. Border communities led the nation in standing up to Trump’s family separations. Hundreds of thousands of people throughout the nation pushed back, and President Trump had to walk back his own policy. 

We can organize and win again. Just like in 2018, border communities will not stand for family separations. But we cannot do it alone.

We need Hidalgo County Judge Cortez to lead and show that border communities will not stand for playing politics with the lives of children and families. We demand that Judge Cortez refuse to cooperate with Abbott’s family separation attempts. We also ask Judge Cortez to meet with local advocates on how Hidalgo County can lead the state to welcome people with dignity. 

Sign on and your message will be sent to Gov. Abbott and Judge Cortez!
