US President Donald Trump ordered the arrest and prosecution of all migrants attempting to enter the US illegally. He also ordered the confiscation of their children.
The RINJ Foundation Women say they have seen the worst of mankind exploit and harm the most vulnerable of mankind claiming “God” and “Justice” as their empowerment and impunity for crimes against humanity.
But when the President of the United States of America rips over 2000 migrant children from their mother’s arms, some of them just little babies, “America, the last bastion of so-called liberty and freedom is collapsing into a cesspool”, says RINJ’s Sharon Santiago.
“We cannot stand by as just one criminal does this crime in the name of 330 million freedom-loving Americans”, she added.
“Trump must be a man (as Trump said to Jimmy Fallon) and resign as POTUS to face as a man his accusers around the world in a global tribunal unless US prosecutors want him in their Court first.”
Santiago and RINJ Director Katie Alsop recently joined others from around the world to meet with senior RINJ executive in South East Asia to discuss their Human Rights violation complaint filed against Donald Trump with the extraordinarily fair, effective and reasonable United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad al Hussein on May 24 Geneva time.
The initial May 24 complaint can be read here.
The meeting was important because a decision had to be taken on the next best step in a class action complaint of sobbing families separated from their children. The witnesses, says Santiago, are afraid to speak out while their children are in custody, somewhere, for fear of reprisals from racists among the cult-like followers of Donald Trump.
The ACLU has said that children in such custody are in danger of physical and sexual abuse. Meanwhile the crime is a crime against humanity in one context but in another it is a crime against the convention on the rights of a child. In International law, the United States has continually found impunity by withdrawing its signatory status from human rights statutes.
At a time when the globe tries to comfort over 60 milion displaced persons including sexually abused children from Central America, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions unveiled a new “zero tolerance”policy on May 7 for people caught illegally crossing the US border, vowing to criminally prosecute every border-crossing case in a policy that could confiscate thousands of migrant children from their parents, indefinitely.

In short, says Santiago, the United States just became a rogue nation by
1) Admitting it is committing human rights violations; and
2) Withdrawing its membership from international tribunals to avoid accountability.
A day after both the Secretary General of the UN and the Human Rights Commissioner admonished Trump on the separation of migrant families, the United States withdrew its membership from the United Nations Human Rights Council. But the Human Rights violations were committed during the time of US membership.
The complaint still stands despite Trump’s so-called promise to stop confiscating children from their families. Over two thousand confiscated children taken since the complaint was filed have not been returned to their parents.
According to Santiago, “the situation’s so out of control that American Airlines has told Trump that it will not carry any more of these children from place to place under the custody of the myriad of Homeland Security paramilitary groups.”
Trump is now saying that he will order the deportation without trial, of all the parents.
RINJ Lawyers are undaunted by Trump’s continued pursuit of impunity and say they will find an effective venue if the US authorities investigating the matter are unsuccessful.
