We received the following action alert from our friends at the Detention Watch Network. Please take action as you are able. Thanks!





Today, May 7, people directly impacted by detention, advocates, faith communities and members of Pax Christi USA will take part in an advocacy day on Capitol Hill asking members of Congress to End The Quota.


Amplify these voices by calling your member of Congress today, May 7th and tell them Congress should eliminate the detention bed quota, which ensures funding to keep an average of 34,000 immigrants locked up in ICE detention facilities on any given day.


What You Can Do to #EndTheQuota


TODAY: Call your Senators and Representative. 


In Christ's peace,


Johnny Zokovitch

Director of Communications, Pax Christi USA
