Below is a letter I wrote to our representative Darrell Issa.
I’m also including the link in case you’d like write him yourself. It took me 5 minutes.
This is the first time I ever reach out to you or any other political representative and as such, I am heartbroken over how our government is separating children from their parents who are crossing our borders seeking refuge and asylum.
While I understand that we have laws, we also have a moral code to follow: One that primarily seeks to love our neighbors, especially those who are experiencing trauma in crisis. We cannot be separating children from their parents. That is not moral and it is not how my generation wants to be remembered by. As one of the people that you represent, I am asking what your office will do you to advocate for children and their parents staying together. What might you propose and how can someone like me help to remediate the situation?
Praying for The family is being affected and our leaders to live out of a more conscious that seeks the flourishing of all.
