Use this as a sample message to give during your call:
“I am your constituent from [City, State], and I am deeply disturbed by the inhumane way families seeking protection in the United States were systematically separated by our government at the U.S.-Mexico border. While this practice has ostensibly been put on hold, I recently learned that families arriving at our border today face the threat of indefinite family detention; and this policy is no less disturbing than the practices that came before it.
I urge you to work with your colleagues in Congress to end indefinite family detention and provide a solution that preserves family values and human dignity at our border. Indefinite Family detention ignores the fundamental principles of family unity that call for families to be placed in the least restrictive setting and afforded the right to expeditious processing.
As your constituent, I cannot in good conscience allow for this to continue. The safety and well-being of children and the integrity of our nation is at stake.
Thank you for your time and consideration."
You can also tweet @ your Senators/Representatives with the same message, share this action alert with your social networks, and continue to follow this advocacy effort by using #KeepFamiliesTogether and #EndFamilyDetention.
