Carrillo Leads Rally Against Family Separations at the Border

(Los Angeles) – Assemblymember Wendy Carrillo (D-Los Angeles) and dozens of families rallied on the steps of Los Angeles City Hall to protest the federal government’s policy of separating families as they cross the border into the United States. “Making a policy to separate children from parents, to spread fear as a deterrent to seeking refuge and safety in the United States is barbaric and cruel,” said Assemblymember Carrillo. “The horror stories we see in the news, of crying babies snatched from the arms of their mothers, should be a wake up call to all of us to take action and stop this disgraceful practice.” Here’s more in this Assembly Access  video.
