Add Your Name to Keep Families Together
Parents who are fleeing persecution, violence, and natural disasters have been separated from their children upon arrival to the United States to seek refuge. Separating immigrant families is not a new policy. Freedom for Immigrants has been working with families separated by our immigration detention system for the last decade.
We can end these family separations by building community-based hosting and accompaniment groups. You can be part of this movement.
And you can be part of this solution!
You can sign up to become a sponsor/host, providing free housing to asylum seekers and other migrants who would otherwise be thrown into the immigration detention system.
You can also pledge to donate funds to support community-based hosting and accompaniment. It costs only an average of $50 per day for an entire family to receive housing and wrap-around services. This is far cheaper than the average of $798 per day it costs taxpayers for a family to be imprisoned.
By adding your name here today, you are not becoming a host or a sponsor. You are simply pledging that if the United States was willing to respond to migration by supporting community-based alternative accompaniment programs, you would be willing for Freedom for Immigrants to contact you to support in one of these two ways.
Please add your name today, and help us respond to migration with compassion, not incarceration.
*Please fill out this form if you are in contact with someone in ICE detention who has requested assistance finding a host or sponsor.
