“The U.S. has the largest immigration detention system in the world.

On any given day, over 40,000 children and adults are languishing in immigrant jails and prisons. They don’t have access to a court-appointed attorney, a free phone call, or a speedy trial. Many of them are subjected to medical neglect, sexual and physical assault, and other forms of human rights abuses. Two-thirds of people in U.S. immigration detention are in private prisons and the rest are locked up in county and city jails, all of which profit off their misery. The U.S. government and the private prison industry have been exporting immigration detention to governments across the globe. This is unacceptable.”  Brave New Films.

Letter-writing is an art.  Practice it.  Practice Justice.
