Pennsylvania Immigration and Citizenship Coalition

It’s Time to #ShutDownBerks!

Dec 19 2016    Action Alerts

Action Deadline: Ongoing

Pennsylvania is currently home to the Berks County Family Detention Center (BCRC), one of three detention centers for immigrant families, where children as young as two-weeks-old have been incarcerated. Learn more about the Berks Detention Center.

Governor Wolf Has the Power to Shut Down Berks. WHY WON’T HE ACT?

Call today, and every day, to tell the Governor’s office:

“Protecting immigrant families is the right thing to do. You have the power to Issue an Emergency Removal Order for the Berks County Detention Center. And you don’t have to wait for the license litigation to be over. Issue the ERO now!”

Governor Tom Wolf – 717-787-2500

PA DHS Secretary Miller – 717-787-2600

Get Involved! Download the materials, organize a call in day, a letter writing campaign, and post on social media. For regular updates, follow the Shut Down Berks Campaign on Facebook and subscribe to the newsletter!
