Family And Society Team: images of young children being taken away from their families and sent to facilities where they will be held have invited outrage among Muslims – AIWA! NO!
People around the world are outraged by the US policy of separating families suspected of illegally entering the country.
More than 2,300 children had been taken from their parents by US officials since President Donald Trump enforced his “zero-tolerance” immigration policy, prompting an international humanitarian outcry.
Most of the children in custody are of Mexican families arrested at the border.
Public anger over the controversial policy has forced Trump to issue an executive order halting the family separation. But the order has been condemned by observers and analysts as falling short of addressing the situation.

Please take a moment to look at this photo. These immigrant children were crying after being put inside a bus to the detention center. Imam Omar Suleiman placed his hands on the windows to pray. You can see those tiny hands. #ImmigrantChildren6311:23 PM – Jun 23, 201844 people are talking about thisTwitter Ads info and privacyView image on Twitter
