Act now! Stop DHS from jailing children and families indefinitely.
The Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Health and Human Services are taking steps to REMOVE limits on how long children can be detained in U.S. detention centers.
The evidence and the science that prove family detention and family separation have tangible negative short- and long-term health impacts on children is well-documented. Still, officials are willfully ignoring the research, and moving toward policies that further endanger the health and well-being of children and their asylum-seeking parents.
