Families for Freedom along with the ‪#‎Not1More‬ campaign, Detention Watch Network, We Belong Together and many organizations are taking part in A National Week of Action to call for the End of Immigration Detention. “‘A system that ‘breeds cruelty and harm’ should be shut down!” Our loved ones have been imprisoned for many years without bond in immigration detention, without knowing if there will be a day when they will be reunited with our families. We call for the freedom of our loved ones languishing in unnecessary detention. Detention is not a solution to anything, it is the problem. The only alternative to detention is freedom. In honor of the National Week of Action for the End of Immigration Detention, Families for Freedom is demanding Free Marlon Vaz!
