#EndFamilyDetention #EnditNow

We are outraged that the Department of Justice has chosen to ignore the pleas of pediatricians, psychologists, faith leaders and (most importantly) U.S. voters by insisting that it is morally acceptable to incarcerate infants and children as they await due process for their asylum cases. The negative affects of Family Detention are well documented and we have little need to restate what has been said ad infinitum, #EndFamilyDetention #EnditNow
