The American Bar Association speaks out

“As President of the American Bar Association, I write to express the Association’s concerns about recent policies and practices that have significantly expanded immigration detention, particularly impacting women and children arriving in family units at our borders seeking refugee protection.  Widespread detention of migrants is inconsistent with fundamental principles of liberty and due process and is particularly problematic when it impacts asylum seekers and children.”
