The Department of Human Services has announced it will revoke the license of the Berks Family Detention Center in Pennsylvania. This comes after a lengthy campaign by a coalition of grassroots organizations to shut down the controversial family detention center, which has housed thousands of parents and children seeking U.S. asylum. Berks is one of only three family detention centers in the United States.
