United Way, The Boston Foundation, Combined Jewish Philanthropies and Catholic Charities Statement on Immigrant Family Separation Policy

Thursday, June 21, 2018

The practice of separating children from their parents at the U.S. border with Mexico, many of whom are desperately fleeing violence in their own countries and seeking asylum, is not only inhumane, it is immoral and un-American.
