In response to President Trumps Executive Order on Family Separation, Abby Maxman, President, Oxfam America said:

By Oxfam

“President Trump’s executive order replacing his immoral policy of family separation with a new practice of indefinite family detention simply trades one evil for another.

The internment of children, even if with their caregivers, remains reprehensible.

The executive order also does nothing to address the 2,300 children who have already been separated from their parents.

Oxfam stands in solidarity with every voice denouncing the Trump Administration's "zero tolerance" policy and demands the immediate reunification of families.”
