Although Trump signed a motion to end family separation along the U.S.-Mexico border yesterday, thousands of children are still being detained in detention centers where they are being held subject to inhumane conditions. In the fight against this, Voto Latino is assembling a rally at Tornillo, TX, the site of the first tent city to house migrant children. Here's how you can get involved:
