ATU calls separation of immigrant children from parents cruel, immoral, and Un-American

Silver Spring, MD – Amalgamated Transit Union International President Larry Hanley issued the following statement condemning the immigration policy separating immigrant children from their parents at our southern border.

“The separation of children from their parents by our government, and the audacity of President Trump in taking this action, is wrong, cruel, immoral and un-American.  Children are the most vulnerable people in any society and what’s happening is inhumane and heartbreaking.

“ATU joins with communities of conscience in demanding that our president, our congress, our country, reconsider our values and act to end this atrocity."
