AFSC calls on the Obama administration to stop conducting raids

We are deeply troubled by news that the Obama administration is planning to conduct a second round of raids to deport women and children from Central America. The raids are said to target young people who crossed the border as unaccompanied minors, alone, and have recently turned 18. Targeting young people who have had to make a treacherous journey and sending them back to a country where they may face persecution shortly after their 18th birthday is particularly callous. Targeting women who have made the journey with their young children, equally so.
