Want to help us Protect Refugees? Below you will find a few initiatives the Interfaith Welcome Coalition has started to help Refugees at Karnes Detention Center.
The Karnes Visitation Program was as a branch of the Interfaith Welcome Coalition. The purpose of the visitation program is to show support to the families that are without visit because their families leave hundreds of miles away.
We have families that are being released everyday from detention to the Greyhound Station where they will be boarding a bus to reunite with their families. San Antonio Families are opening their homes for the night and offering a warm meal before these women and children leave San Antonio.
The IWC is working to provide families released from Karnes with backpacks with supplies for their long bus journey ahead.
Sign on to our letter to aw we urge the administration to immediately halt the practice of family detention and employ alternatives that allow children freedom and dignity while they await due process.
