End the Immigration Detention Quota!
It’s time to take action! The DHS Appropriations Act currently requires that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) maintain 34,000 immigration detention beds at all times. This mandatory quota, enacted to law in 2009, benefits corporate prison, not our public safety or those fleeing violence and seeking a better life. This policy is unprecedented; no other law enforcement agency operates on a quota system.
By advocating against the detention quota, you are working to keep families together and uphold the dignity and rights of all people. Steward your voice by urging Congress to eliminate the bed quota from the FY 2017 DHS appropriations bill! Click the button below to add your voice!
