FWD.us Statement on Settlement over Family Separations at Border

WASHINGTON, DC – FWD.us President Todd Schulte released the following statement today in reaction to a settlement deal reached between the Biden administration and the ACLU in the case over the Trump administration’s family separations at the border:

“This proposed settlement is a step in the right direction but overdue and incomplete. The thousands of families the government cruelly separated deserve nothing less than financial compensation as is standard given the severity of the harm caused by the government’s punitive deterrence policy. They also deserve no less than a prioritized pathway to permanent residence and more than one option to stay in the United States. The U.S. government must expand upon this settlement and take all steps necessary to ensure the abhorrent policy of separating young children — including infants — from their mothers and fathers never happens again, including by building more legal migration avenues that give families safer options to come to the United States.”
