ACLU’s Mother’s Day appeal for migrant reunification: “Will my mom remember me?”

The ACLU is running an emotional two-page ad in the New York Times this Mother’s Day, urging the Biden administration to go beyond reuniting migrant children and parents separated by President Trump and guarantee them protections to stay in the U.S.

Details: The ad, previewed by Axios, depicts, in red ink, desperate, hand-scrawled fears of separated children against the backdrop of a growth chart.

  • “They took my mom and dad,” says one note below the 4-foot mark.
  • “Will my mom remember me?” asks a note closer to the 5-foot mark.

Driving the news: The administration reunited its first four families this week. Around 400 parents have not been located and roughly a thousand remain separated — some since as far back as 2017.

  • The ACLU is calling for family members to be reunited inside the U.S. and provided “citizenship, resources, care, and a commitment that family separation will never happen again.”

What they’re saying: “This Mother’s Day, hundreds of children remain separated from their mothers and thousands of others are suffering from the trauma Trump’s family separation practice inflicted,” Anthony Romero, ACLU executive director, said in a statement.

  • The Biden administration “understands it needs to pick up the pace, and we can’t hang the ‘mission accomplished‘ sign just yet,” he said.

What we’re watching: Biden’s Family Reunification Task Force is due to release a progress report on June 2.

  • After suing over the Trump administration's separation of migrant children, the ACLU entered into settlement negotiations with the Biden administration in March, citing the task force's intentions and work to reunify the remaining families.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
