Airlines to Trump: Don't put separated migrant kids on our flights
Author: Carleton English, The New York Post, Published on: 22 June 2018
American Airlines and others do not want the US government using their fleets to transport migrant children torn from their families as a result of the Trump administration's controversial border policy..."We bring families together, not apart," American Airlines said in a strongly worded statement Wednesday hours before President Trump signed an executive order to halt the practice of splitting families....Since the policy was enacted, more than 2,000 children have been separated from their parents. While many of the children are in facilities in South Texas, some have been sent to other locations in the US. The Post reported Wednesday, citing federal sources, that 300 migrant children are headed to New York City in the next week. Other airlines, including United Airlines and Southwest Airlines, also issued statements Wednesday echoing American Airlines' sentiments.
