‘I wouldn’t wish it even on my worst enemy’: Reunited immigrant moms write letters from detention
Immigration Justice Campaign and the Dilley Pro Bono Project invite you to join their social media campaign to free the 39 families who have endured months of detention with no end in sight. Here’s what you can do:
1. Spread the word on social media using the hashtag #FreetheFamilies.
2. Read the letters in their entirety on the Immigration Justice Campaign website.
3. Stay tuned for opportunities to send your comments to the government on the administration’s proposed Flores regulations, which if implemented could result in the indefinite detention of thousands more immigrant children.
OWLS Member May Low, Chief of Staff at Catholic Charities shared this event with us which will be held on Thursday, June 27 at noon. This one hour Facebook Live event hosts a discussion on new, existing, and past border policies & how they affect children crossing the border.
“Hear from two of our immigration and refugee experts, and learn what you can do to be most helpful in the midst of this crisis. We’ll be selecting questions during the LIVE event for a mini Q&A session at the end.”
Please join Kelsey Keswani and Sarah Purce in this Facebook LIVE event this Thursday.
