Vigil for Family Unity

Iowa’s faith community stands in solidarity with immigrant families at their ICE check-in appointments

•Families from Central America are fleeing violence & seeking safety in Iowa.

•A mom and dad followed the rules, but ICE cruelly detained and deported the father.

•Faith communities denounce ICE’s inhumane enforcement priorities and call for welcoming, just policies.

•ICE’s tactics result in family separation by targeting parents who seek to protect their children.

•We are urging ICE to allow asylum cases to move forward, explain why Dad was deported and keep families together.
