Mothers participate in 'playdate protests' outside ICE offices to condemn family separation

President Donald Trump and his administration faced backlash from both parties after their “zero tolerance” immigration policy separated parents from their children once they illegally crossed the U.S. border.

Even though Trump has since signed an executive order reversing the administration’s decision to place migrant children into facilities that appeared to have cropped up overnight, it is still unclear how the United States plans to reunite the families.

This uncertainty has inspired many people to protest and to call for the abolishment of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) branch of the Department of Homeland Security.

Naturally, a good number of these people who are protesting for the children to be reunited with their families are mothers themselves.

Waging Nonviolence reports: “Parents with small children — mostly moms — have invaded the offices of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, in New York and Chicago to decry family separation and detention. Many more of these ‘playdate protests‘ are planned around the country for the coming days.” 

Last week, children wrapped themselves in thermal blankets, which are often provided for migrant children who are detained, at the Capitol rotunda, and 50 mothers had a “nurse in” outside ICE’s New Jersey headquarters.
