Familyseparation Photos & Videos

I took this video of their daughter learning to take her first steps the day before Christmas outside a migrant shelter in Tijuana. - A few weeks later the family had their chance to enter into US immigration the legal way and asked to file for political asylum. For unknown reasons Fredy was separated from his wife and child and sent to a prison in Tallahatchie, Mississippi (that also holds immigrants). Since then he has had no contact with his wife and daughter who were being held in a facility for minors in Texas. - Fredy has a sister who is a US citizen with whom he hopes to be able to stay with in Seattle while his family files for asylum. But Fredy’s sister told me that Esther, his wife, was made to sign away Fredy’s parental rights to his daughter while in US detention (still unclear why). - I have had phone calls with Fredy in the Mississippi prison. He told me that the inmates had to be quarantined for a bit because of an outbreak that was going on there. Once the quarantine is over he has been told by the staff that he will be transferred to a facility in a different state where he will see an immigration judge. - The problem is that they wont tell him in what state it will be (maybe they don’t know yet). This makes things very difficult for his family to be able to find a lawyer that can represent him since they don’t know where he will be transferred to and how much time they will have, if any, before his case will be processed in front of the judge. - Fredy is trying to file for asylum because his family’s land was stolen by gangs and two of his brothers were murdered by gang members. The gang has promised to finish off him and the rest of his family as well. - #asylumseeker #migrantcaravan #documentary #photography #immigration #legalaid #abogadosdeimigración #immigrationlawyer #needed #derechoshumanos #humanrights #incarcerated #familyseparation

Whenever REUNIFICATION screens publicly, I would start the film and stay for about 15 minutes in order to make sure that everything runs smoothly. After that, I like to leave the screening room for the next hour to check out the surroundings. At libraries, I would roam around to see the library layout and to browse their book and dvd selections. At colleges, I would walk to the student center, get a cup of coffee, student-watch and reminisce about the sweet and sourness of those youthful years. How those college days opened up a whole new view on life... absorbing radical and challenging fresh ideas, meeting great lifelong friends, rollerblading, b-balling, yet still feeling uncomfortable in my own skin and not yet aware of who I was. At an outdoor park screening, I would stroll to the very far end of the park, look back to see the film playing at a distance (can’t hear the sound anymore)... with families standing and sitting on the grass, strollers and bikes idling, cars moving on the street in the background, and planes flying over the sky. Festivals are a bit more serious. Instead of leaving the building, I would just stay in the lobbies to chat with other filmmakers and festival staff. I suppose this rigidity is due to the air of competition and promotion there. I usually go back into the screening room about 20 minutes before REUNIFICATION ends, when the film’s trajectory changes into a warm and hopeful feeling, to get ready for the post-discussion with the audience. . .

Alison the youngster of three girls, is playing a game over the phone with her dad, who was deported back to Guatemala - From a BuzzFeed news story on family separation - Arredondo his wife, Cleivi, and their three daughters — had fled to the US after their son, Marco, 17, was shot and killed by suspected gang members outside his grandmother's house near Guatemala City. Then, the family was separated again. After more than 90 days in detention, Arredondo failed his asylum interview and he was deported. Just weeks earlier, former attorney general Jeff Sessions said that gang violence was not a reason to claim asylum, though a federal court struck that down later in the year. Arredondo case highlights the arbitrary nature of the immigration system — two parents told the same story of their son's murder, but only one passed their asylum interview — and the impact that the Trump administration’s burdensome policies have had on migrant families. The family has only sees there father and husband via FaceTime since May 2018. • • @buzzfeednews #photojournalism #home #familysstaytogether #america #family #familyseparation #humanrights #dad

#TBT to the annual GRAMMY block party the same year I married this absolutely amazing, incredibly talented, intelligent, and loving soul standing next to me - can’t believe it will be 3 years!🥰♥️ My husband is also an artist/singer-songwriter, and adopted as well (by his dad). Relationships are a lot of work as they are, and two adoptees in relationship, as you can imagine, is a lot of hard work and then some to navigate — yet it has been the most challenging, rewarding, most beautiful work I’ve ever done. Here’s to continuous healing for all of us.🌌♥️✨ . . #GRAMMY #grammyblockparty #adopteelove #musicianlove #nerdlove #musicheals #adoption #adoptionstory #universalstory #singersongwriter #composer #newmusic #artistsforchange #mentalhealth #emotionalintelligence #awareness #trauma #grief #loss #familyseparation #healing #fereraswan

I’ve spent some time researching my family lineage for the past year and have found out so many things. It’s unfortunate I wasn’t able to hear more stories from family members before they passed. I hope our nation doesn’t forget this part of history as we continue to review our immigration and asylum policies. #dor at Los Angeles, California

This article broke my heart. It is about #familyseparation #autism style. The parents made the decision to separate the family to protect their kiddos from their nonverbal autistic child. It really opened my mind. What do you do when you feel like you can’t control your other kids? 💙🧩 #Autistic #AutismLife #SpecialNeeds #AutismAwareness #AutismAcceptance #SpecialNeeds #SpecialEducation #appliedbehavioranalysis See the link in my bio.

Thoughts today. It’s hard not to imagine what my bio mother would have done had she had the information that is available today; the education, facts, and research when it comes to the separation of mother & baby — for both mother & baby. Again, this has nothing to do with gratitude or what I believe in spiritually — grief & trauma have never been about gratitude. Too often our society makes assumptions about things (and people) without allowing new information in; too often we allow ourselves to be misguided by belief systems (whether we realize it or not) that don’t even truly belong to us. Awareness is everything. Curiosity is everything. Compassion & kindness are everything.♥️ . . #adoptee #adoption #motherbaby #trauma #grief #loss #adoptionstory #reunionstory #universalstory #adoptiontrauma #ptsd #familyseparation #mentalhealth #awareness #emotionalintelligence #truthheals #justlisten #neurobiology #artistsforchange #newmusic #singersongwriter #composer #secondtime #fereraswan

El Paso was originally called “El Paso del Norte” (the passageway to the North). It’s fitting that we are here, so close to the imaginary line where the most racist Americans want to build a wall and lock people in cages while the rest of us just want to treat people decently and welcome them in. Today we are holding a #TeachInForFreedom. From 9am until 6pm today (MST), teachers from all around the US and Mexico will converge in San Jacinto Plaza to educate the country on the real crisis at our Southern Border. You can tune in via our livestream. (Link in bio.) at Downtown El Paso

WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK!!! Posted @withrepost@una_nacion_latina There are no words to describe this administration's desire to now KIDNAP separated migrant children from their parents. We posted a video recently of a little girl separated from her mother, she was traumatized & her mother was desperate to love her. The real story is this administration lost track of how many children were separated and now they are fabricating cause to protect their inadequacies. This news leaves us heartbroken. The #ACLU takes this corrupt admin to court on February 21st, please support them. 💔 ☆ ☆ #fucktrump #mitu #latinosunidos #trumptrain #nobannowall #trump #gop #republicans #democrats #liberals #unanacionlatina #trumprussia #borderwall #seekingasylum #immigrationreform #caravanamigrante #mexico #elsalvador #guatemala #honduras #25thammendment #trumpresign #familyseparation #hielera #internmentcamp #2019 #2020

Does #Scientology force its members to get abortions? That’s the accusation of #ClaireHeadly, former member of the Church of Scientology.  Appearing on actress Leah Remini’s A&E show Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, Claire alleges that she - as a member of the Sea Organization - was forbidden to have children, and was forced to undergo an abortion during her time as a church member.  #leahremini #moneyabuse #jennamiscavige #ronmiscavige #cult #notsavingtheworld #beatings #evil #scientologytheaftermath #scientology #lies #openconfrontation #tomcruise #formervictims #slavery #davidmiscavige #cultleader #martyrathburn #markrathburn #60minutesAustralia #markrinder #disconnection #familyseparation #plannedparenthood

It’s really nice to have the privilege to talk about the 17 yr process in making a personal film after the screenings, but it’s really great to witness how different audiences react to it. While some commented on the shooting, writing & editing techniques, others spoke about the film as a microcosm of our culture, i.e, how struggling families don’t have the luxury to reflect on the past because of survival for now, how Asians don’t usually talk about divorce, or how Asian parents tend to value money over happiness for their children (audiences generally agree that there needs to be a shift here). Still others who are shy to speak in front of everyone during the discussions came up to me and entrusted me with their own personal stories face to face. Here are a few memorable and heartfelt moments at these screenings... an Asian mother and her young son held hands while his head was on her shoulder several times during the more poignant moments of the film; an elderly Jamaican immigrant woman said how she wished she could’ve had “that talk” with her mom about the past before her mom passed away; several brave middle and high school students spoke in front of everyone about what was going on at home w their (step)parents these days. The more stories I heard, the more I realize that we are all on the same boat, bounded by societal/familial pressures, yearning to become our true selves. May we all be blessed on our journeys. .

🇵🇷 Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens, and they need help now to avoid hunger! ⁣ ⁣ ⚠️ This is urgent: Puerto Rico will not have enough Nutrition Assistance Program funds- the island’s version of food-stamps- if Congress does not provide $600 million before the end of March. Without this funding, 1.4 million people in Puerto Rico will lose some or all of their food assistance. ⁣ ⁣ ✅ Puerto Rico needs these funds because Congress previously approved too little to meet the needs of people still reeling from the impact of Hurricane Maria. Congress was expected to include this urgently needed help for Puerto Rico in a disaster relief package as a part of the spending bill that must be passed by February 15. ⁣ ⁣ ⛔️ But President Trump and his allies in the Senate have so far refused to help Puerto Rico, so there will be no disaster relief in the spending bill. They are counting on your silence, and on the nation’s distraction from the critical needs of 1.4 million U.S. citizens. ⁣ ⁣ 🗣 We are asking YOU to speak up for the unheard and to call your Senators:⁣ ☎️☎️ CALL: 202-224-3121 ☎️☎️ and ask your Senators:⁣ ⁣ 1️⃣ Please provide $600 million so Puerto Rico’s Nutrition Assistance Program does not run out of funds in March. This need is urgent – 1.4 million people will lose vital food aid if you do not act. ⁣ ⁣ 2️⃣ The U.S. citizens of Puerto Rico deserve our help as they struggle to recover from Hurricane Maria, and they have gotten far less help than other disaster sites. ⁣ ⁣ ✊ Thank you for standing up for our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico. #TakeAction4PR

I’m not sure who wrote the above (if anyone knows, please let me know so I can credit them) but there is so much truth in this for what adoptees experience. If it’s not the expectation to be grateful for their new identity, new life, new culture, etc. — it’s the expectation to forget they had (have) a biological mother, a biological family. Only recently within the last year or so had I been introduced to bio mothers who experience their own version of ‘coming out of the fog’ from their perspective as well, and my heart hurts for them as they speak their truths of their grief & longing they experience for their baby that was taken from them. I can’t even imagine. The powerful, spiritual, emotional, psychological bond between mother & baby is often underestimated, often misunderstood. True, each case and every circumstance is different in each story, but at the end of the day, adoption, ultimately, benefits everyone else — not mother nor baby: the two individuals who suffer the most as a result of being ripped apart, and forced to move on without each other. Again: Grief & trauma have never been about gratitude. . #motherbaby #motherloss #babyloss #familyseparation #trauma #grief #ptsd #adoptee #adoption #adoptionstory #reunionstory #universalstory #mentalhealth #emotionalintelligence #healing #awareness #artistsforchange #singersongwriter #composer #newmusic #secondtime #fereraswan

#Repost from @fereraswan 💓 ・・・ "You’re probably wondering what this is a picture of. It might seem silly to get excited over something like freckles, but for an adoptee, features we share in common with our biological parents are like tiny little treasures. Both my first mother and her twin sister have many freckles on their faces (theirs are more noticeable than mine), and when I met my first mother, I didn’t have any at all — she told me I would likely develop them over time just like she did, and she was right!" . "There is so much validation, comfort, grief, sadness, connection, and longing in these little dots on my face. I know where they come from. I know she has them too. I also have her forehead. It never gets old to me. These things may seem so insignificant, but on days when I feel especially far away...they’re a reminder that I did come from a real person; that I do have roots.♥️" . . #adoptee #adoption #adoptionstory #reunionstory #grief #trauma #familyseparation #ptsd #awareness #truthheals #adoption #adoptionishard #adoptioniscomplicated

Lord tonight, I’m praying for couples who are separated. Not only are they dealing with family separation but also financial separation. I pray for household finances going from two incomes to one. God, thank you for meeting every need and thank you there will be NO lack in the homes of your people. I praise God in advance that every bill is paid AND paid on time. I pray the children are not affected Lord. I pray increase over their home, financial stability and the peace of God over their family life. In Jesus name!

Can you as a Trump Hater have a friendship with a Trump Lover? I have for a myriad of reasons decided no. What a person supports, who they voted for and their values can tell us an enormous amount of information of what is inside a person: -A person that supports a President who puts children in cages cannot be my friend. -Racism is Evil. Trump is a Racist. A person who Supports Trump cannot be my friend. -A person who mocks a handicapped person cannot be my friend. -A person that Lies almost all the time cannot be my friend. -A person that is a Racist and says they are not a Racist cannot be my friend. -A person that supports a President that uses the term "shithole countries" cannot be my friend. -A person who hated Obama because he was black and loves Trump because he is white and a Racist cannot be my friend. -A person who does not support a free press and freedom of speech cannot be my friend. -People who dismiss facts and science cannot be my friends. -The uneducated, the idiots, the morons, can be my friends....but when they turn Evil they cannot be my friend. At it's hate full heart are millions of Americans that are unaware of their Racist Tendencies and love Trump because Trump is them in their hearts and they do not even think Trump is a Racist even with the red hats and the Ku Klux Clan slogan on it. thestorm walkaway censorship thegreatawakening theconservative411 getoutthevote kanye candiceowens news politics radicalliberalterrorism kag americans neverforget trumplican liberallogic deplortme thestormishere lockherup hillaryclinton clintonfoundation flynn breaking whyididntreport ibelievechristineford criminalkavanaugh conspiracyachieved ibelievechristine ibelievechristineblaseyford trumptax istandwithdrford taxscam2 obstructionofjustice postponethevote stoplavanaugh bluewavecoming2018 connecttheleft mog vetsembarrassedbytrump cadetbonespurs cowardinchief trumpcowardice trumpbetrayedthenation draftdodgerinchief notmycic trumpneverserved vetsagainsttrump vetsashamedoftrump jfkucinich trump5timedraftdodger robbymook trumpshirkedhisduty vetsdisgustedbytrump democracy kinglear williamshakespeare macbeth hamlet theatre ophelia london romeoandjuliet s lo at Bristow, Virginia

The quick answer here is #FamilySeparation; but that hardly explains how naive and foolish allowing #IsisMoms to raise #CaliphateCubs in diverse nations really is. In the top corner, an innocent pair of #KichenTongs were converted into #TortureTools by the caliphate. #WomenOfIsis used these "breast-rippers" against girls and women who refused to wear burkas, and any number of "crimes" of being less extreme about islam than allowed. This torture, and worse!! was inflicted by these very women. Numerous magazines and radio news shows profile these fanatics raising #TickingTimeBomb kids. This must be stopped, and now. All jihadis, especially isis, must be returned to whatever nation or area suffered their war-crimes. Only if found innocent BY VICTIMS OF JIHAD should they ever see another free day. In the case of these children, when possible, they should be sent to responsible relatives overseas, and banned from returning. When impossible to return these children, rehabilitation is the only responsible choice. To deprogram these cubs, isolation from islam is key. And, #SecurityServices must track these kids for life; they might go off at any time. In particular, isis made its sinister agenda regarding children clear. Toddlers were indoctrinated. Even in control of 3 million people, the caliphate never counted its chickens. At war against the world, the terrorist quasi-state acted much like its predecessor, nazi Germany had. Even in defeat, isis intends to rise from the grave and kill again. NVBorneo_World encourages comments, reposts and shares!!

There’s plenty of research that supports this fact — psychologically, physiologically, spiritually, emotionally, intuitively (the list goes on) — but microchimerism is something I only learned of today and found so fascinating. Excerpts from article with link below: . “It’s now known that cells from a developing fetus cross the placenta, allowing the baby’s DNA to become part of the mother’s body. These fetal cells persist in a woman’s body into her old age. (If she has been pregnant with a male child it’s likely she’ll have some Y-chromosomes drifting around for a few decades too). This is true even if the baby she carried didn’t live to be born. The cells of that child stay with her, resonating in ways that mothers have known intuitively throughout time.” . “Fetal cells you contributed to your own mother may be found in her blood, bone marrow, skin, kidney, and liver. These fetal cells appear to “treat” her when she is ill or injured. Researchers have noticed the presence of these cells in women diagnosed with illnesses such as thyroid disease and hepatitis C. In one case, a woman stopped treatment against medical advice. A liver biopsy showed “thousands of male cells” determined to be from a pregnancy terminated nearly 20 years earlier. These cells helped her body recover just as fetal cells you gave your mother rush to help repair her from within when she’s unwell.” . “There’s evidence that fetal cells provide some protection against certain cancers. For example, they’re much more prevalent in the breast tissue of healthy women than in those with breast cancer. Fetal cells are less common in women who developed Alzheimer’s disease, suggesting they provide late-life protection. Fetal cells can contribute stem cells, generate new neurons in the mother’s brain, even help to heal her heart. Her heart!” . https://tinyurl.com/microchimera . . #microchimerism #motherbaby #adoptee #adoption #adoptionstory #reunionstory #universalstory #motherloss #trauma #familyseparation #awareness #truthheals #justlisten #artistsforchange #mentalhealth #emotionalintelligence #singersongwriter #composer #newmusic #secondtime #fereraswan

Filmed over a 17-year period, this award-winning film gives an insider view on the contemporary Asian American immigrant experience, family psychology, and personal filmmaking. Director Alvin Tsang reflects on his family's migration from Hong Kong to Los Angeles in the early 1980s - fraught with betrayal from his parents' divorce, economic strife and communication meltdown between parents and children. This poetic exploration moves moodily across different channels and modes, bending into labor histories and Hong Kong's colonial trajectories. Tsang turns the camera on his own family, cautiously prodding for answers, but fully acknowledging that the only closure he can get will be from deciding for himself how to move on. .

This is Helen. She is 5. She was separated from her grandmother and uncle while seeking asylum at the United States/Mexico border. Her family was fleeing Honduras after her uncle had received death threats from gangs in the area. . This photo was taken after her family was separated. Helen was once a very calm and happy child. She has now been reunited with her family, but her grandmother says Helen is afraid to sleep at night-afraid her family will leave her or be taken from her. Her grandmother says she is very clingy not wanting to be apart from them during the day; this five year old is scared she won’t see her family ever again if she’s apart from them. .
