Thank you IM4HI community for sharing your voice with President Biden. 900 signatures delivered today!📢 The movement to end immigration detention is made up of people from diverse backgrounds and religions. Today, 900 spiritual leaders, faith-based organizations, and immigrant rights groups sent a letter to the Biden Administration demanding they reverse course on a long list of unfilled promises. Immigration detention is expanding in the United States, with the Moshannon Valley Correctional Facility (the largest detention center in the Northeast) almost at full capacity, detaining more than 500 of our community members. The Biden Administration has claimed to have ended family detention yet they are converting the Berks County ICE Detention Center into an adult facility for women. Immigration detention IS family separation. ///// Let us be clear, this is inexcusable and the Biden administration must cut contracts immediately.Read the letter ow.ly/wUIz50HysCh and head over to detentionwatchnetwork.org/take-action to let Biden hear from you! #CommunitiesNotCages #FreeThemAll ...
