“The Southern California Local Council of Covenant of the Goddess opposes the separation and unreasonable detention of families seeking asylum in the United States of America. American ideals include welcoming those who flee tyranny, violence, and other forms of abuse in their homeland. We are a nation of heart, of vast wealth, and of vast space. We have made the grave mistake of demonizing and incarcerating entire groups of people in the past to our profound regret and disgrace. We must not let this situation continue.
We demand that every effort be made to trace children to their parents separated at our southern border and facilitate their reunion without delay. We also support providing entry and timely judicial review to those awaiting asylum outside our ports of entry.”
