Free the Berks kids

Seeking asylum is not a crime

Every day in the United States, hundreds of families are locked up in three detention centers known as “baby jails.” Their crime? Seeking safety in the United States.

The Berks family detention center in Pennsylvania is the oldest of these “baby jails,” and until recently, where four children and their mothers were jailed for nearly two years all because they were trying to seek a better life in the United States after fleeing violence and persecution in Honduras and El Salvador.

Imagine you flee for your life, only to be locked up for seeking safety. Imagine having to watch your children learn to walk in jail.

The United States administration must stop locking up children and their families for seeking safety.

Send an email to Secretary Nielson and demand an end to this inhumane policy.

Free the Berks Kids now.
