The detention centers holding unauthorized immigrant families on the Southern border are reminiscent of the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II. This bill would end the morally catastrophic detention of families seeking asylum and a better life in the U.S.
Detention centers are an unfortunate symptom of a broken immigration system, but they’re necessary to the enforcement of immigration laws. Simply releasing unauthorized immigrants or asylum-seekers who may never appear in court is unacceptable.
