Rep. Grijalva Pushes Back on Biden Administration on Family Detention

WASHINGTON, DC – Representative Raúl M. Grijalva (AZ-07) issued the following statement:  

“Family detention serves two purposes: lining the pockets of private prison companies and acting as a useless deterrent to prevent migrants from seeking their legal right to asylum. This failed policy is callous and inhumane. I urge President Biden to instead focus on the root causes of migration, expanding our nation’s asylum process to ensure that it is fair, humane and orderly, and reunite the children forcibly separated under the previous administration.”
