From Alex Mensing of the University of San Francisco Immigration and Deportation Defense Clinic:

Hello friends and fellow social justice warriors! Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving with your families.
#GiveMateoBack TWITTERSTORM SATURDAY 11/25!! Simple instructions below.
As many of you have heard, one of the members of the most recent Refugee Caravan was separated from his one-year-old son by ICE & CBP after crossing the border to request asylum. José, the dad, is now in Otay Mesa alongside three other fathers who were separated from their kids. Carlos' 12-year-old son, Eric's 3-year-old son, and Walter's 5-year-old daughter were taken from them and sent to ORR.

We CANNOT stand for this. Our message to Central Americans fleeing violence cannot be "if you come here we will destroy your families." It must be "we will stand with you as you pursue your dream of safety, dignity, and life."

Help us spread the word and keep the pressure up, demanding that they reunite all the families NOW and liberate them immediately! As José told us yesterday: 
“on this Thanksgiving Day, I can only say: Equality, Reunification, and Freedom!”
