Veteran Service Corps is engaged in building toward an equitable world through maximizing the training, education, experience, and talents of the veteran community.  VSC volunteers support human and civil rights, facilitate sustainable solutions that improve our communities, provide the infrastructure necessary to address complex systemic problems, and build capacity in others through camaraderie, teamwork and service.

The detention of asylum applicants and their children on the southern border of the United States is equivalent to concentration camps, slavery and the internment of Japanese-Americans.  The incarceration of these families is immoral and is reminiscent of black site operations undertaken in the past. The United States as a beacon of hope for those fleeing tyranny in the pursuit of peace and justice is what is at stake.  Our American legacy for protection of the defenseless and assistance to the needy should be offered to these refugees as it was to our ancestors. 

The board of directors of Veteran Service Corps, and the individual signees affixed hereto, respectfully petition the government of the United States to immediately halt the current border crisis and replace it with a policy of respect for the human rights of these immigration aspirants and end detention of asylum applicants. The honor of the country and the American people demands nothing less.
