The decision represents the latest recent victory for immigrant rights advocates who have been fighting Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy and the separation of families. Over the weekend, a federal court denied Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar’s request for an extension on the deadline to reunite families.
“We cannot allow the administration to continue to push responsibility for the human rights crisis it created in every direction but its own. The administration must be held accountable for the horrors its created, and the zero tolerance policy must end,” said Olivares.
The Families Belong Together coalition celebrated Gee’s decision and reminded supporters to continue fighting Trump’s anti-immigration agenda.
