As you may remember, within days of the first family separations at the U.S. border, more than 20,000 medical professionals and PHR supporters condemned the barbaric practice in a letter to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. She then responded with a letter that simply shouldn’t be shared without pointing out the obvious factual errors and misleading doublespeak. So, red pen in hand, we attempted to fix Secretary Nielsen’s letter for her.
But there is simply no amount of red ink that could “fix” this disingenuous letter. And because we will NEVER allow polite words and bureaucratic smoke screens to deter us from fighting back, we have drafted a serious response to Secretary Nielsen that you can read here.
Please share this shameful letter (and our attempts to “fix” it!) to expose DHS’s callous twisting of the facts. Click here to share using the social media buttons at the top of the page.. We will be in touch soon with more ways you can stand with children and families at the border.
