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.
