We are Lawyer Moms who jumped into this fight simply because we could not tolerate the separation of migrant children from their parents. We have been vocal on this issue since June 8, 2018. The President's June 20 executive order is not enough; our biggest takeaway from it is that activism works. Constituent pressure works. We must keep the energy going until every separated child is reunited with her family and no child languishes in federal detention facilities.
Each of us would do anything to keep our children safe.
Each of us swore an oath to defend the Constitution.
We will not let this unconscionable practice stand on our watch.
