9. A call to action for all Catholics to stand against the inhumane treatment of people,

especially those seeking asylum from violence and **ESPECIALLY CHILDREN** who are being harmed by this brutality. All Catholics need to be united against these atrocious actions. Call your representatives, stage protests, sit-ins, prayer vigils, call in the press to cover it. Unite with the people of your parish and discuss ways each of us can help. Speak loudly and clearly that the Church will not sit idle before the evil actions of these men. Call them out by name. Gather at the gates of the concentration camps and detention centers. Demand immediate disclosure of the whereabouts of all the young girls taken by ICE. Demand that the children be returned to their parents. Let them know that the Holy Church will not rest until these crimes against humanity cease and all asylum seekers are treated with dignity and respect and families are no longer separated.
