Disturbingly, it has been reported that as many as 83 Central American immigrants recently denied asylum were murdered within months of their return…I urge you to immediately end these raids and not deport families back to countries where a death sentence awaits. We cannot continue to employ inhumane tactics involving rounding up and deporting tens of thousands of immigrant families to address a crisis that requires compassion." ProCon.org.
