Cat herder.

Betsy Ebeling, 73, who was known as Hillary Rodham Clinton’s best friend and first childhood school chum, died Sunday in Arlington Heights after a long battle with breast cancer.

Ebeling and Clinton had a long history together dating back to when they were sixth-graders at Eugene Field School in Park Ridge.

“It’s so sudden because Betsy was always busy gathering Hillary and all of us who had been close — especially her Park Ridge school buddies, which she jokingly likened to herding cats,” said Kathy Burgess, a close friend.

Ebeling was working on getting everyone together for a “slumber party” in Indiana Aug. 9- 11, Burgess said.

Wednesday marked one year since the United States District Court in the Southern District of California ordered ICE and the U.S. government to reunite an asylum-seeking mother and her seven-year-old daughter — which they did, after months of waiting.

Meanwhile, hundreds of families are still waiting to be reunited, and more are being separated and sent to isolated detention centers. In the past few weeks, we’ve seen reports about CBP forcing children to take care of toddlers in holding cells, and DOJ lawyers actually trying to argue that the Trump administration doesn’t have an obligation to provide detained children with items as basic as blankets, toothbrushes, or soap.

Please make a donation to support the organizations working to protect children and families at the border.

Together, we’ve raised more than $700,000 this week that will help get basic resources, legal aid, and advocates to children at the border, among other things — with our help, Families Belong Together has been able to cover the costs of flights for families finally being reunited and secure safe housing for vulnerable immigrants. Thank you for making that possible. It’s critical that we provide a counter-point to the unconscionable things being done to refugee and immigrant families in our names.


Thank you,
