Family Separation & Detention

Children should never be detained, with or without their parents.

Act now

We support openness to refugees, victims of violence, and human trafficking and those seeking asylum. The immigration policies we envision will allow people to migrate to the United States regardless of their wealth or skill levels, to preserve their families’ unity, to change their places of employment and to apply for lawful permanent status and eventual citizenship.

We live in troubling times. First, the administration separated children from their parents as they sought safety by crossing our border with Mexico. Hundreds remain separated today. Then, they responded to a humanitarian crisis by deploying troops in border communities and actively teargassing asylum seekers. Today, they are building walls through communities and detention camps on military bases to house refugee families.
