UPDATE: USCCB is currently involved in providing services to reunited and released families around the country. If you are an attorney looking for more information about a client, please send the client’s name, the name of the detention center from which they were released, and a copy of their G28 to familyseparation@usccb.org, and we will be happy to see if he or she was served by one of our affiliates. However, because this inbox is not encrypted, please do not send A numbers.
