OSJ Action Alert: July 13, 2018

Tell Congress that Incarcerating Immigrant Families is Unjust

Congress is trying to solve the crisis of separated immigrant families -- but bills like the Keep Families Together and Enforce the Law Act (H.R. 6190, S. 3093) would not provide a just solution. Instead, it would change the law to allow children to be detained indefinitely, together with their parents.

Both separation and detention cause trauma for children. And there are much better solutions.

We need humane immigration policy that keeps families together, protects access to asylum, and promotes alternatives to detention for all those seeking asylum.

Ask Congress to reject proposals to expand family detention and speak out against “zero tolerance” policy!
