Lawyer Moms of America Against Trump Immigration Policy

In news from south of our borders:
"A new group called Lawyer Moms of America, formed to oppose separation of immigrant families, has quickly grown to 10,000 members, thanks to social media. " 

"The group is planning a Day of Action on June 29, even though President Donald Trump signed an executive order Wednesday to end family separations."

"Lawyer Moms says the executive order is silent on the status of more than 2,345 immigrant children who are already separated from their families, and the group is urging they be reunited. And the group is concerned about families being held indefinitely in what could amount to internment camps."
Earlier this week, the American Library Association mentioned a whole list of other organizations fighting the Trump administration's cruel anti-immigrant policy:
“We express our sincere appreciation and stand in solidarity with those of like mind including ACLU, Al Otro Lado, Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project, Border Angels, CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project, Immigrant Defender's Law Network , KIND (Kids in Need of Legal Defense), Pueblo Sin Fronteras, REFORMA: Children in Crisis, Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, Texas Civil Rights Project, The Florence Project and Refugee Rights Project, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, The Young Center of Children's Immigrant Rights, and Together Rising.”
Send them money.

The American Association of Law Libraries has also reacted this week.

Amnesty International has declared that it "considers intentionally inflicting severe mental suffering on families for coercive purposes a form of torture".
