The return of debtor’s prisons became acceptable when people were being jailed for owing child support debt. Most child support debt is held by people with low or no income which led to parents being jailed for being poor. This act of jailing the poor in America was outlawed in 1833 and needs to be re-abolished. American citizens should never be jailed, for any reason, for being too poor to pay a government debt. We must start with the reformation of the child support system. Join the fight!
