As an immigration attorney, I have witnessed the toll indefinite detention takes on children and parents. Last year, just before Christmas, I traveled to the Berks Family Residential Center in Leesport, Pa. Berks is one of the few immigration detention facilities in the country that holds families. Despite the holiday decorations, the families I met were depressed and distraught. Parents were confused about the immigration process and when they would be released. Children were crying and listless. One little girl kept telling me she just wanted to go home. Another boy told me he missed playing soccer with friends.
