Elijah Cummings Recognizes “Where Are the Children” project

“When our own government rips vulnerable children, toddlers, and even infants from the arms of their mothers and fathers with no plans to reunite them, that is government-sponsored child abuse. As Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, I’m working to hold the Trump
Administration accountable for the inhumane treatment of children and fighting to make sure families are reunited as soon as possible. That is why I am proud to recognize the “Where are the Children” project for taking a stand against the injustice of separating families. The Pajama Clothesline Project event that will be held on International Children’s Day on the National Mall will send an important message that these separated children must be reunited with their loved ones immediately.” Congressman Elijah E. Cummings

Can’t wait until 2020 to win an election?
