The Women’s Refugee Commission stands in support of this ruling and the sanctuary city movement in its attempt to protect vulnerable populations and allow them safe spaces to report crimes without the fear of deportation.

    Washington, DC -- According to a CNN report, US Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly told Senate Democrats yesterday that he does not intend to separate mothers and children seeking refuge at the border.

    The Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) is pleased with this development, as it affirms what WRC has long known to be true – that separating asylum seekers' families in an effort to punish them for seeking protection and to deter other families from coming to the U.S. is cruel, un-American, illegal, and ineffective.
