On June 20th, World Refugee Day, we will be calling Governor Wolf to demand he take action to protect families seeking refuge in the U.S.

Governor Tom Wolf (717-787-2500)
PA DHS Secretary Miller (717-787-2600)

Governor Tom Wolf and the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services have the power to issue an Emergency Removal Order on the Berks County Detention Center, an action that would ensure the facility can no longer be used as a prison. It is not only their moral obligation to keep families out of jail but their legal responsibility. FAMILY DETENTION IS ILLEGAL.

It is literally the state’s job to protect these families, which has not been done in the four years this center has operated.

No more nice words about “standing” with the immigrant community, we demand real action NOW.
