I REALLY DO CARE, DON’T YOU?

via


Last week, First Lady of the United States, Melanie Trump, wore a “I really don’t care, do u?” jacket TO a migrant visit. At first, I WAS FURIOUS. I MEAN, WHO THE HELL DOES THAT!?!? But then, I realized that I was talking about America’s first family and then I was kinda like, yeah not at all surprised, do better.


FLOTUS and her controversial jacket


I’m going to leave this tweet right here. It speaks for itself.


I REALLY DO CARE, DONT YOU?

Description from PSA: “After Melania’s fashion disaster, we figured we had to do something about it. So we sprung our Rapid Response unit into action, thought of United We Dream, and are presenting here, a better message: We Care. We Really Do.

100% of profits go to United We Dream, the largest immigrant youth-led network in the country, fighting for justice and dignity for all immigrants.”

BUY THIS T-SHIRT


So, instead of having a rant on today’s post of how disgusting, crime against humanity etc., her actions are, her husband’s actions are, how the American government has reached a new low, let’s talk about what we can do and who you’re helping.

While I am not American and I’m a damn proud Canadian, I can’t just sit here and be happy and ignore what’s going south of the Canadian border. I’m not familiar with the American law and what it entails, so a quick Google Search brought me to this article by the Guardian. This article, it lists all the ways we can help. 

Some ways you can help

Sign this petition to stop family separation

Call your representative. Stop Speaker Ryan’s Anti-Immigrant Bill

Make a donation to Act Blue and they will split donations evenly with 14 organizations


Support Kids at the Border

From their Website:

Chip in to critical groups working to protect kids separated from their families by ICE:

Al Otro Lado – serves indigent deportees, migrants, and refugees in Tijuana & Los Angeles

The Florence Project – providing legal & social services to detained immigrants in Arizona

Neta – a Latinx-run progressive media platform telling the stories of what’s happening on the border

Innovation Law Lab – working in immigrant detention centers and hostile judicial districts; keeping the definitive list of kids being held

Fuerza Del Valle – organizing workers & immigrant communities in the Rio Grande Valley

The Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights – promoting the best interests of unaccompanied immigrant children

We Belong Together – women for common sense immigration policies

United We Dream – the largest immigrant youth-led network in the country

Womens Refugee Commission – advocating for the rights and protection of women, children, and youth fleeing violence and persecution

ACLU – fighting attacks through the legal system

Kids In Need of Defense (KIND) – protecting unaccompanied children who enter the US immigration system alone to ensure that no child appears in court without an attorney.

Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project – providing asylum seekers with legal aid and community support across the country

Human Rights First – helping refugees obtain asylum in the U.S.

La Union del Pueblo Entero – founded by Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta, a community union that works in the Rio Grande Valley from the grassroots up

By making a monetary donation and/or calling your representative (US citizens), we can do our part and hopefully put an end to this. I saw a couple photos and videos of separated kids, and I just sat there crying. You just want to give them a big hug and tell that it’s going to be okay and just want them to be happy. These kids are innocent. They don’t deserve this. Children should be playing with their family and friends, smiling, laughing. No one should be separated from their families. No one should feel scared. By making a donation or calling your representative, you’re helping these sweet, innocent children be reunited with their family. Imagine if you were in their shoes. You can’t say “this doesn’t affect me, let the government deal with it” or this horrendous, disgusting, appalling tweetI got SO MAD when I saw that tweet. Yeah, but what if that was you? What if you wanted a better life and ask for help? You owe them, as a human, to help others. I hate it when people preach about “doing good for our country” and so and so and claim to be a Christian/Catholic AND THEY SAY/DO STUFF LIKE THIS!!!! You think God would appreciate what you’re doing and supporting?!?! Supporting someone who has committed adultery, has cheated, lied, hates on people of colour etc.???? Wouldn’t you think God would want you to help your brothers and sisters? 


If you’re gonna preach about the Bible and God, yet you’re supporting him, you’re doing it wrong. Do better, help others, be kind to everyone.
