We Won! The Tornillo children's prison is closing

Anthony,

The government has responded to our demands and is shutting down the immigrant children's prison in Tornillo, Texas. Most of the children have already been allowed to go live with their sponsors pending their asylum hearings. More are scheduled for release in just a few days.

Thank you for helping us achieve this remarkable historic success! 


OUR JOB IS NOT DONE. Many thousands of children remain imprisoned at other detention facilities. 😱 We have already started to contact senators and representatives to urge them to pass legislation to free these other children, reverse the policies that have led to their confinement, and make the changes to our immigration policies that are so urgently needed.

In order to demonstrate the support that we have for these demands, we will be delivering to Congress the petition that you and more than 65,000 other people signed.

In coming days, we'll be back in touch to ask you to be part of our ongoing efforts. In the meantime, be encouraged by knowing that once again the people have prevailed and have brought about change—and you helped make it happen.

Rabbi Bruce Elder,
Shut Tornillo Down Coalition
Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
