Aberdeen Residents Plan Vigil in Support of Children at the Border

Aberdeen, S.D. (HubCityRadio.com) – A group of Aberdeen-area residents plans a vigil on Friday, July 12 at Anderson Park, to shine a light on the horrific abuses by the federal government in human detention camps, particularly with respect to children.

Organizer Dr. Marie Schwab Miller says the “Lights for Liberty” demonstration is a nonpartisan effort and all are welcome to participate who agree that all children are entitled to a basic standard of care that keeps them safe and healthy-adequate food, clean clothing, access to soap and water, suitable accommodations for sleep, and proper supervision by adults, not other children.

“Innocent children are not a policy tool, and they should not be so employed. We see the care of children as a humanitarian issue. The vigil is focused on the safety and well-being of children and families. Children should not be imprisoned, and in the awful event they are, we owe them our most determined efforts to assure their well-being.” she says. “We want to show that we believe America can do better for those seeking safety and opportunity in our country.”

The event will begin at 6:00 pm and wrap up at 7:30. All are welcome.
