Ask Congress to hear the voices of immigrant youth

In July, immigrant youth and families will make the journey from Newark, N.J. to Washington, D.C., to tell Congress how immigration enforcement policies tear apart their families.
Detention and deportation have a particularly traumatic impact on the children whose parents and caregivers are taken from their community. Between 2010 and 2012, over 200,000 parents of U.S.-citizen children were deported, leaving tens of thousands of children without at least one of their parents.

That’s why AFSC and immigrant allies in Newark are partnering to ask members of Congress to hear directly from immigrant families about the human impacts of detention and deportation.  

Ask your members of Congress to be there to learn the consequences of immigration enforcement policies.
