TAKE ACTION FOR HUMAN RIGHTS
URGENT: TWEET FOR DIGNITY
Around 14,000 people are STILL held in U.S. immigration detention. Many are stuck there for weeks, months, even years, without easy access to attorneys and in dangerous, crowded conditions that lack basic hygiene and medical care. Black and brown people, who make up the overwhelming majority of those detained, face added discrimination and other human rights abuses.
Every day immigrants and asylum-seekers remain trapped there is another day their rights are violated and their lives at risk. We have an opportunity to reform the way this system works, and to make freedom the norm by passing the Dignity for Detained Immigrants Act – tweet at your member of Congress now!
