YOUR COMMENTS MATTER

Until November 6 all citizens
can post responses on the official website.
— here is how you do it:
- Go to www.regulations.gov
- Enter into the search box
DHS Docket No. ICEB-2018-0002
- That will take you to a comment form
to fill out and submit.
The Flores settlement should remain unchanged, as it reflects ALL scientific, developmental, psychological, and medical knowledge about the well-being and healthy growth of children, both physically and emotionally.
Our government should defend and promote the needs of all individuals, however small and powerless.
SPREAD THE WORD.
