Thousands of asylum-seekers were crossing the Mexican border into the United States, only to be arrested and separated from their children. A huge thank you goes out to the 134 members of the UUCS congregation who signed the Social Justice petition last Sunday, asking our Congress to intervene. The petitions were printed, envelopes addressed and stuffed, and all were mailed on Tuesday, June 19. The petitions will go to every U.S. Senator, every member of the Oregon delegation to Congress, and several high ranking people at the White House. Thank you for lifting our voices in the face of injustice.
On Wednesday, June 20, President Trump reversed course and signed an order to end separating families at our southern border.
