Watch: Recorded Webinar on How You Can Help #EndtheQuota for Immigration Detention

June 12, 2014

The expansion of the immigrant detention system is in part due to an arbitrary quota from Congress that requires the incarceration of 34,000 immigrants in detention at any given time. The immigration detention bed quota, which started in 2009, requires Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to lock-up an average of 34,000 immigrants in detention – close to half a million immigrants annually – in a network of over 250 county and state jails, private prisons and federal facilities. In this webinar we explain the very basics of what the detention bed quota is, and the process on how we can eliminate it. We also share information about the End The Quota campaign and ways in which organizations and individuals can get involved.
