Support the Families Not Facilities Act (H.R. 2217 and S. 388)

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a person of faith, I am deeply concerned by the use of emergency influx facilities to hold migrant children away from their sponsors without proper care, lack of medical and legal access, and poor education standards.

The Families, Not Facilities Act will help reunite children who are being held in emergency influx centers like the one in Homestead, Fla. with their sponsors, by ending hurtful collaborations between the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Homeland Security. Beyond this, it will provide greater oversight in the placement of unaccompanied minors by creating an advisory committee that will ensure the Office of Refugee Resettlement provides proper care to these children.

I urge you to support the Families, Not Facilities Act.

Children deserve to thrive with their families. I hope and pray you will join me in making this possible.
