On June 30th, 2018, thousand of people got together all in different cities of the United States to show their support for those families that have been separated in the border of the USA and México, during the “Families Belong Together March”.

In New York City, all the supporters of the march walked with powerful messages across the Brooklyn Bridge. One of the people who walked the march wa Chris Perez: “When someone’s first memory of the United States is being locked up at the border, that doesn’t help the American dream,” told the political science professor to the publication Patch.

But some celebrities were also part of the march through social media. Selena Gomez said in her Twitter: “Families seeking safety in our country need protection, understanding and opportunity, not detention,” she wrote. “This is a moral choice, not a political one,” the singer added it.

More than 2 thousand children are still separated from their families, and the march was looking to reunify these families soon.

Thousands of people for the Families Belong Together march!

We have two sons. Sebastian is 3, Francisco just 5 months old. I cannot imagine the emotional trauma my boys would experience if they were to be separated from Vanessa and me. But that’s what’s happening at our border—forced family separations, denial of due process, imprisonment of kids and parents. To be silent while this takes place in our country is to be an accomplice.
