A mistake with which Trump gained millions of dollars in aid

Por dbloggers

Thousands of spectators and fans are following the Football World Cup Russia 2018. Some shout, others jump and the merriment in the stadiums of the Eurasian nation turns the great sports’ event into a real celebration. But while this is happening, Mary is being separated from her son Juan. In "cages" and not rooms the Immigration Customs Services has put infants separated from their parents. Age does not matter, nor does the matter that almost 1500 children were taken away from their families and could not have being located. This concern and images of infants crying for their parents have become viral. In order to help these families, non-profit organizations have made several donations.

Once again social networks like Facebook have become a headache for the US government and this time a couple from Silicon Valley has created a campaign to raise money for these families who are suffering from ICE harassment.

"Reunite an immigrant parent with their child" is the name of the campaign created by David and Charlotte Willner that has gone viral in such an extension that they had raised so far almost 14 million dollars. "What began as a hope to help persons reunite with their family has become a movement that will help many people", said former Facebook employees.

Both felt identified and moved after seeing images of what was happening on the border between Mexico and the United States. They came out with the initiative but never imagined that donations would start arriving in large quantities. In less than a week already millions of dollars have been invoiced destined to help the families separated from their children.

The shocking pictures that media is currently publishing are stirring hearts around the world. Despite this, Donald Trump is undaunted and firm in his idea to stop the emigrants. Nevertheless, his “iron fist” has been pushed to sign an executive order to end the separation of families at the border.

The document aims to maintain the family unit and help the Department of Defense to host them. However, there still is the question where those families who have already been separated will go to and what will happen to the children outside the ICE radar and their families who have not yet been located.

However, the head of the Department of Justice, Jeff Sessions and the government will maintain the "zero tolerance" policy that has been supported by the head of state. This strategy requires the filing of charges against all adults who are detained for crossing the border illegally.

Many experts and Democratic congressmen consider the president is blatantly blackmailing everyone to ensure the construction of his border wall, which, according to him, would control the migratory flow.

Meanwhile, parents from around the world have sympathized with what is happening. The couple creator of the initiative commented that political affiliation doesn’t matters but the anguish of seeing thousands of families suffer when being separated from their children.

According to numbers offered by media, almost 300,000 people have donated money for this cause. The money raised will be given to the non-profit organization, Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), based in Texas, which offers free and low-cost legal services to immigrants.

It is expected that more than 2000 families will benefit from the donations received. Among the aid that will be offered, the nonprofit organization RAICES reported that it is intended to use the funds in addition to bringing families together, providing them with legal services.

Jenny Hixon, RAICES’ director, told the Washington Post that they hope to hire more lawyers and train more volunteers, and even create a network of therapists and psychologists to help children when they leave detention centers. The fight to stop the abuses against the families of emigrants has touched even the business sector of the United States that already begins to give sparkles of opposition to Donald Trump’s administration. It is expected that Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg will join the donations.

The executive said he was going to donate money to groups that help migrant families to obtain legal advice and translation services at the border. With the message: "We need to stop this policy right now," he encouraged the heavyweights of Silicon Valley to do the same.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has also joined the support of migrants and the collection of funds for affected families. ACLU has raised $ 2.5 million online thanks to the donations made from more than 40,000 people since last June 14.
