Protect Immigrant Children and Reject Expansion of Family Incarceration

I pass this along from Church World Service.

Right now, ICE is asking Congress for additional funding for family incarceration and immigration detention. It is critical for the faith community to make their voices heard and urge Congress to reject any proposal that fuels family separation and family incarceration. Instead, Congress should pressure the administration to reunify separated families and end "zero tolerance" policies, keep Flores protections for immigrant children intact, and invest in community-based alternatives to detention like the Family Case Management Program.

Faith Leaders: Click here to sign on to an important letter urging Congress to protect immigrant children and reject an expansion of family incarceration.

Thank you for your work, and please share this letter with your networks
