To the editor:
Remembering the rallies across the nation protesting the president’s immigration policies that separated families seemed to work. (“Families Belong Together” by Brian Kelly, Bainbridge Island Review, July 1).
Many of the children have been reunited with their families, but more are still waiting. Are the folks who were out in the street taking the next step to make sure all of the children are reunited with their families?
The next step is to call, write, or visit your congressional representatives to make sure this process is completed and compassionate, comprehensive immigration is passed.
This is how the READ Act supporting education for all became law. It is how the Reach Every Mother and Child Act is has been cosponsored by nearly half of the House, and how it will be brought out of committee and passed to help end the millions of preventable deaths of mothers and children in our world.
It takes active citizenship to create the political will to make these differences. Are you ready to make the call, write the letter?
