|Let’s put children first.|
Good morning, Olivier,
Save the Children remains deeply concerned about the treatment and well-being of children at our country’s border.
As a mom, my heart breaks for these children and their parents. I can only imagine how terrifying it would be to reach the United States after an unthinkably dangerous journey, only to have my children forcibly taken away, with no idea if or when I’d see them again.
Please watch my interview this morning on « This Week with George Stephanopoulos, » ABC’s pre-eminent Sunday morning discussion program, at 10:30 a.m. Eastern Time. (Please check your local listings.) We will discuss the treatment of immigrant families at the southern border.
On children’s behalf, I plan to challenge our country’s leadership in ways that represent the very heart of who we are and all we do together for children. We believe every last child deserves a future. No matter who they are or where they’re from. Every last child.
Here’s what you can do: Visit our website and sign the petition we’ve created to raise our voices to defend and protect the best interests of innocent children caught up in this border crisis.
We have ZERO TOLERANCE for any policy that doesn’t put children’s interests first. It is our moral and legal obligation to ensure children are protected and their rights for due process are upheld.
Because all children should have what every child deserves: safety and a chance at a future.
Thank you for your support,
