Deadline Day - Release and Reunite All Immigrant Families

Date: 
Thu, Jul 26, 2018 - 7:00pm to Fri, Jul 27, 2018 - 10:00pm

City:

The court mandated deadline to reunite all families separated by ICE is fast approaching on July 26th. Currently, DHS has not been able to confirm they've even matched every child with their parent in custody, and less than one fifth have been reunited.

Even if they do, the Trump/Sessions DoJ will still be detaining them. This is reunification in cages, not community.
