An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Please support the FIRST Act

11 so far! Let’s get to 25 signers!

I'm writing today to urge you to support the FIRST Act, co sponsored by Cory Booker and Pramila Jayapal. This act would release anyone who does not pose a public safety threat from ICE detention. Currently, detention facilities are primed for a mass casualty event due to COVID-19. To leave people in detention under these circumstances would effectively be to sentence people to death for trying to immigrate to the United States. Thank you for your time.
