Stop Family Detention

October 18 @ 8:00 am - November 6 @ 5:00 pm

The Trump administration is trying to change the rules so it can jail immigrant children and families indefinitely and roll back already-minimal standards for their treatment by issuing a Notice of Public Rulemaking (NPRM) purporting to implement the Flores Settlement. The proposal would transform the child welfare protections of the Flores Settlement into administrative tools of the Trump administration for punishing children and their families seeking protection in the United States.

Calvary urges it’s members and friends to submit robust comments detailing our opposition to the proposed rules. To help build and inform your comments, a coalition of organizations has produced comprehensive template comments covering dozens of topics. As maximizing the number of unique comments is critical, please modify the template comments to reflect your unique perspective.

CLICK HERE to access the template comments, and remember that public comments must be submitted by Tuesday, November 6.

When you submit your comments, please consider sharing it with the Stop Family Detention campaign by uploading it here. You can also use and share the StopFamilyDetention.org public comment microsite to directly submit short, individual comments opposing the proposed Flores rules.
