Did you know there’s a federal policy that requires U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to maintain 34,000 immigrant detention beds every day?
This “bed quota.” This arbitrary mandate deprives immigrants of their fundamental rights and devastates families and communities—all while feeding the bottom line of for-profit prison companies contracted to maintain those beds in detention facilities nationwide.
The bed quota is inhumane as well as a waste of a taxpayer dollars. And it must end.
Please join us in calling on Congress to pass the Deutch-Foster amendment and oppose the bed quota!
