Action #1 – Write a comment to prevent the indefinite incarceration of immigrant families. Deadline: Nov. 6th
“These places can destroy people.”
We have 57 days left to flood this government rules site with comments protesting the revocation of the Flores Agreement’s 20-day maximum limit for incarcerating children.

Detaining families indefinitely is not the answer for protecting our borders.
Read the entire rule text here.
Read other comments for inspiration here. We’ve included some great comments at the bottom of this post. They don’t have to be long. You can use someone’s comments as a basis, but try to insert your own voice for your comment to be fully counted at the deadline.
