On July 9, 2014, nearly 100 New Jersey Children and their families traveled to Washington D.C. In Washington, they attended a briefing titled "Since My Mother Left," and testified about the experience of being seperated from their families because of detention and deportation.
The American Friends Service Committee, Detention Watch Network and Friends Committee on National Legislation would like to thank everyone who attended the briefing. We hope that you found the briefing to be both interesting and informative. We encourage you to continue learning about immigration policies under consideration by President Obama and Congress.
