Family Unity/Enforcement Reform Letter to Secretary Jeh Johnson

As the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) undertakes its review of enforcement policies and practices, we strongly urge you to take immediate action to stop the pain being inflicted on families through detentions and deportations. This not only affects the impacted families but harms our communities overall. There are a number of actions DHS should undertake that, combined, would promote family unity. This letter is not intended to provide an exhaustive list of recommendations for enforcement reform or administrative relief. Rather, the letter identifies just some of the specific actions DHS should undertake with regards to families to make its enforcement more humane and effective.
