Senator Jeff Merkley - America is Better than This: Trump's War Against Migrant Families — in conversation with Eric Schwartz — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Thursday, November 21, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Merkley, US Senator from Oregon and sponsor of the Stop Cruelty to Migrant Children Act, was among the first members of Congress to witness firsthand the abhorrent conditions of detention centers along the U.S.-Mexico border. Millions watched on Facebook when he was blocked from entering a former Walmart in Brownsville, Texas, where 1,500 migrant children were detained, and many more have been galvanized to protest Trump’s immigration policies after seeing what Merkley saw on several subsequent border visits: children and infants stranded in heat or locked up in cold holding pens, a child tent prison in the desert, and children torn from their parents’ arms. In this passionate and unsparing call to action, Merkley exposes the Trump administration’s atrocities and demands that we call a halt. 

Sen. Merkley will be in conversation with Eric Schwartz, President of Refugees International.
