Take Action Today to End Solitary Confinement in Immigration Detention

Write Your Senator TodayThe Senator Blumenthal Amendment 2 to the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act (S.744) is an amendment that would limit the harmful practice of solitary confinement in immigration detention facilities. The amendment would prohibit the use of solitary confinement for children, limit its use for those with severe mental illness, and require the Department of Homeland Security to develop effective oversight mechanisms.

We urge you to take action today by expressing your support for the Blumenthal Amendment 2 to your Senator on the Judiciary Committee using the sample email we have prepared. You are invited to customize it and send it to your Senator.  If asked, please enter your zipcode so we can identify if you have a Senator on the Committee.
