End Family Detention


In the Spring and Summer of 2014, an increased number of families fleeing violence in Central America came to the United States seeking protection. Rather than welcoming these individuals with compassion and addressing their needs, the Obama administration sought to deter other families from making this journey by detaining the arriving families in several large detention centers where they await legal proceedings that will decide their future. The practice of detaining families continues under the Trump administration. Urge your elected officials to end this harmful and inhumane practice.
