Tell Congress: No New Money for Family Detention
The national crisis of family separation and unchecked immigration enforcement persists. To pave the way for increased family detention, Congress is considering pouring billions more dollars into the budget for immigrant detention.
Government spending should protect families and end unjust border policies. As part of the Interfaith Week of Action to Stop Family Detention people of faith are speaking out in one voice against these policies.
Increasing funds for detention, deportation and border militarization, will result in more immigrant families kept in detention. We should instead invest in effective community-based alternatives like the Family Case Management Program. These programs treat families with the dignity they deserve.
