Last month, @Call_Me_Dutch  , @RepSarbanes  , & I sent a letter to @ICEgov  requesting that ICE immediately stop using this predatory tactic. Read our letter:

Lead poisoning is one of the most preventable environmental diseases, and tragically still far too many of our children have been affected and face a lifetime of possible health problems.
