Note: this is an area of the site related to breaking news. It's currently devoted to highlighting companies and organizations that profit from Trump's "zero tolerance" immigration policy, which includes the detention of migrant children, a practice opposed by the United Nations. Note: when contacting these companies, please do be respectful. Many do provide services that are necessary such as translation, healthcare, shelter, and furniture. The question is whether or not an organization can both profit from this administration's draconian policies and truly assist the populations it claims to serve. In many cases, the budgets of these organizations have dramatically increased since Trump's policies were introduced.
