177 House Members to DHS: End Family Detention

On Friday, 177 Democratic members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) calling for an end to its Family Detention Program.  The letter, led by Representative Zoe Lofgren of California, comes on the heels of the US District Court ruling that the detention of immigrant women and children violates the 1997 Flores Settlement.
