Mark Ruffalo and Common Speak Out on Humanitarian Crisis at Border in Immigration Video

Mark Ruffalo & Common

By Jack Barnes

Today,  We Stand United released a new video featuring Mark Ruffalo and Common about the ongoing humanitarian crisis of family separation and abuses at the border. The Trump Administration failed to meet a court order to reunify families they separated at the border by July 26. Many families have not been brought back together. Children are still being kept in cages and abuses continue. The short video features distraught parents and children at the U.S. border, humanitarian workers describing the conditions they are facing, and also includes moving footage of a mother being reunited with her child. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.

Oscar nominated actor, director, and advocate Mark Ruffalo says in the video, “We are in the midst of a humanitarian crisis here on U.S. soil. The Trump Administration has failed to comply with the court order to reunify all the families that have been separated at the U.S. border.”

Oscar and Grammy Award winning musician and actor Common states that, “Families are still being kept apart, and children are still in cages. We need to help these families. We will not rest until all the children are out of cages and back in their parents’ arms.”

Andra Day’s Grammy-nominated song “Rise Up”, which she offered in support of the video, is also featured.

The video asks viewers to donate to Families Belong Together (at www.ReunifyFamilies.org) to help reunite families, including transportation costs. Many parents are being forced to pay to get their kids back, sometimes thousands of dollars, and many of them came here with nothing but the clothes on their backs.

Rebecca Chaiklin and Bruce Cohen, of We Stand United, said, “We made this video to show the human cost of the Trump Administration’s despicably inhumane immigration policies. The Trump Administration must immediately comply with the court order to reunify every single family they separated.”
