Oppose Trump’s Attempts to Indefinitely Detain Children!

Sep 7 2018    Action Archive

Action Deadline: November 6, 2018

The Trump administration has issued new DHS and HHS regulations in order to withdraw from the Flores Settlement Agreement. The new rules would: strip children of current protections regarding limits on the length of their detention in CBP, ICE, and HHS facilities; undermine licensing practices and conditions standards for their detention, including potentially limiting their access to food and educational resources; and, restrict their ability to reunite with family members and other currently qualified sponsors within the United States, amongst other provisions. Simply put, these rules jeopardize the lives of children and should not move forward.

Submit a comment and tell the administration we need an END to family detention, not rules making it easier to detain children indefinitely. The deadline is November 6th!
