Immigrant detention and deportation

Immigrant detention and deportation

Every year, the U.S. deports over 300,000 people and imprisons an estimated 400,000 individuals in immigrant detention facilities across the country, costing taxpayers over $2 billion annually.  

AFSC works to stop detention and deportation, which tears families apart and and harm all of our communities. Joining with immigrant-led efforts across the U.S., we advocate for fair and humane immigration policies that welcome and respect the dignity of all people.
