Action Alert – June 8, 2016

National Call-In Day to DHS to Release Detained Youth and Halt Raids  

June 8th, 2016, 9am-5pm

Tell DHS Secretary Johnson to release detained youth now and to halt the raids that are separating families


Call Script:

Hi my name is                         , and I want DHS Secretary Johnson to stop the raids. These raids have been shown to violate the due process and right to asylum protection for families and children, and foment fear within immigrant communities. They deserve our protection, not jail and deportation.

I ask for the release families and youth currently waiting appeal so they can be reunited with their families.


After you call, please encourage others to do so!
