READ: Rep. Grijalva One Of 32 House Dems To Tell Obama of Concerns Re: Undocumented Central American Families

Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-CD3) is one of 32 House Democrats to send a letter to President Obama today about concerns that the U.S. is planning to house more undocumented Central American women and children for longer periods and without bond.

The letter was led by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), and comes as a new detention center in Dilley, Texas may be opening within a few weeks, and could house 2,400 undocumented immigrants next year.  It also expresses concerns about the no bond (or high bond) policy that is keeping Central Americans in detention even after there has been an initial determination that they have legitimate fear if sent back to their country of origin.

Grijalva was the only Arizona Representative to sign the letter.
