United Way of Western Connecticut is deeply concerned about the separation of young immigrant children from their parents. It is hard to imagine a more vulnerable person than a child who may be fleeing violence and oppression in their home country. It is unconscionable to further victimize such a child by taking them from their parents. That is simply not who we are as a nation.
United Way is a non-partisan, non-political organization and believes that Americans must work together to find an immediate solution to this urgent matter.
