SBCC-FACEBOOK-share-image-logo.png

Recently, The Southern Border Communities Coalition, along with over 220 nongovernmental organizations from across the United States stood in solidarity and signed a letter to end the mass detention of families and asylum seekers. Addressed to Jeh Johnson, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, the letter highlights the record-high numbers of immigrants detained daily. Furthermore, the letter notes DHS' recent contract extension with one of the nation's largest for-profit prison companies. We demand that the mass detention of families end immediately.
