Bethany Christian Services Urges the Administration to Keep Families Together

March 08, 2023

Bethany Christian Services today urged the Biden administration to oppose any plans to restart a family detention policy. Family detention is an inhumane policy proven to impact children and families negatively.

“At Bethany, we believe that every man, woman, and child deserves to be treated with inherent dignity. We implore the Biden administration to restore all asylum protections and dedicate resources to ensure that vulnerable families are sufficiently served, so that no family is sent back to the danger they fled,” said Liz van Zyl, Vice President of Government Affairs for Bethany Christian Services. **
