ACTION ALERT: National Week of Action to End Immigration Detention

Immigration detention is an inhumane and unjust system of mass incarceration that targets immigrant communities across the United States. The U.S. currently has the largest immigrant detention infrastructure in the world with a sprawling network of over 200 facilities. Subjected to abysmal conditions, people locked up in immigrant detention languish in a punitive limbo as their immigration court proceedings play out. With over 145 reported deaths in immigration custody since 2003, it’s time that the U.S. government move towards permanently dismantling its immigration detention system.

 You can sign a petition to end immigration here.
