Our Statement on Family Separation and Detention

Vera believes that children belong with their families, but the answer to family separation is not family detention. We proved in a three-year test that immigrants don’t need to be in detention to appear in court, and alternatives are more cost effective and humane.

Many immigrants coming to the United States are fleeing violence and persecution in their own countries and are seeking protection. Vera remains committed to ensuring that all immigrants and their families are provided with due process and critical legal services. We will continue our work to safeguard justice for all.
