17. He's also been arrested 5 times fighting in this capacity, & while he was US Rep too!

Here he is at it again, at 78 yrs of age.

He doesn't have to say much at all anymore.
He simply arrives & the nation knows why.

His legacy humbles us all.

9. John Lewis is 78 yrs old. What an honorable man.

John Lewis was one of the "Big Six" leaders of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s, and he has continued to fight for people's rights since joining Congress in 1987.

He Leads while others merely talk about leading.

16. Thank God that there are protesters out there

bringing attention to the atrocities occurring on our borders. God bless John Lewis who has been fighting for human rights for over 60 years. I am hoping there are young people who will carry the torch. Some of us oldsters are getting tired... and old.

29. So agree with you.

Separating children from their is extremely offensive. Since when did the United States declare war on children. I am so angry.

FAMILIES BELONG TOGETHER
https://familiesbelong.org

Families Belong Together opposes the cruel, inhumane and unjustified separation of children from their parents along the U.S. border. Join us on June 14, 2018


Families Belong Together opposes the cruel, inhumane and unjustified separation of children from their parents along the U.S. border with Mexico and at other ports of entry into the U.S. We protest the conditions in which these children are kept. We protest the irreversible trauma that has already been perpetrated on these children and their parents for the crime of seeking a better life.

To separate immigrant families, victims of violence, hunger and poverty, is to re-violate them. Children as young as 18 months are torn from their mother’s arms by the U.S. government. This is violent abuse. These families are victimized again by the government to which they turn for help. Families Belong Together opposes the inhumane policies of the Trump Administration, Border Patrol, and I.C.E. and calls for immediate reform.
----
Familias Unidas, No Divididas rechaza la separación cruel, inhumana e injustificada de niños de sus padres a lo largo de la frontera de los Estados Unidos con México y en otros puertos de entrada a los EE. UU. Protestamos por las condiciones en las que se mantienen a estos niños. Protestamos contra el trauma irreversible que ya se ha perpetrado contra estos niños y sus padres por el delito de buscar una vida mejor.

Separar a las familias inmigrantes, familias víctima de la violencia, el hambre y la pobreza es volver a violentarlas. El gobierno de los Estados Unidos separa a niños de tan solo 18 meses de los brazos de sus madres. Esto es abuso. Estas familias son nuevamente victimizadas por el gobierno al que acuden en busca de ayuda. Familias Unidas, No Divididas se opone a las políticas inhumanas de la administración de Donald Trump, Protección Fronteriza y I.C.E. y pide una reforma inmediata.
