Separating immigrant families is unconstitutional

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was recently presented with a proposal to enact a policy of separating immigrant children from their parents as an alleged way of halting immigrant families from coming to the United States. If approved, this policy would give the stamp of approval to a horrible and unconstitutional practice that families my organization works with in Texas are already experiencing.

The Obama administration tried something similar to deter immigrant families from coming to the U.S. In August 2014 the government began a policy of not issuing bonds to families with the stated aim of forcing them to remain in detention to discourage future immigrant families from coming to the U.S.
