End the Detention Quota
Join AFSC in working to stop the quota
Did you know that there's a federal policy that requires U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to maintain 34,000 spaces for immigrant detention every single day?
This "detention quota" fuels the mass detention of over 400,000 immigrants in the U.S. every year, while lining the pockets of for-profit prison corporations contracted to run detention centers.
As long as Congress continues to mandate a detention quota, we will see more and more people funneled into this for-profit system of mass detention.
Tell Congress: End the detention quota
Take action today. Urge your elected officials to end to this inhumane federal policy.
Join us in calling on Congress to end the quota and support inclusive policies that respect the dignity and rights of all people.
