House Democrats call for end to the shame of family detention

In this video, El Paso Representative Beto O’Rourke and other House Democrats speak out to urge our government to end the detention of Central American women and children who have been detained at our southern border. Most of them are seeking (and are eligible for) political asylum. They should be freed and given their day in court, not locked up in shoddy, unhealthy conditions. It’s a long video, but Beto speaks at minute 29 (and gives a nod to the work of Annunciation House).
