Immigration Statement as of 6/19/2018

We stand with the countless leaders across the nation who are calling for the immediate reunification of parents and children and an end to the separation of families at the border.

Immigrant families that are fleeing their countries and coming to the U.S. to seek asylum are being separated. Over 2,000 children have been separated from their parents and this inhumane treatment must end immediately.

Chattanooga is at its best when we come together. As Chattanoogans we urge you to stand with us and use your voice to stop the separation of families. You can do something TODAY by calling our senators and let them know that you are against the separation of families.

Call Senator Corker - 202-224-3344

Call Senator Alexander - 202-224-4944

ESPAÑOL

Apoyamos a los innumerables líderes a través del país que exigen la reunificación inmediata de padres e hijos y que exigen un fin a la separación de familias en la frontera.

Familias inmigrantes que se están huyendo de sus países y vienen a los Estados Unidos a buscar asilo están siendo separadas. Más de 2,000 niños han sido separados de sus padres y este tratamiento inhumano debe terminar inmediatamente.

Chattanooga es una mejor ciudad cuando estamos unidos. Como Chattanoogans, les pedimos que se unan a nosotros y usen su voz para parar la separación de las familias. Usted puede tomar acción HOY llamando a nuestros senadores y haciéndoles saber que usted está en contra de la separación de las familias.
