Join us on March 24 to commemorate Monseñor Romero Day by calling on the Obama administration to release the women and children held in immigration prisons! Over a thousand women and children have been deprived of their freedom and have undergone tremendous trauma from their time in detention. Many women and small children have been held as long as 8 months.
