All She Asked Was That Her Brother Be Treated Humanely
"Please we need help from each & every one of you." the sister of a man held at Delaney Hall, a for-profit immigration detention center in Essex County said.
On October 9th outside of Delaney Hall, the private, for-profit correctional facility that is housing ICE detainees as part of a deal with Essex County, protesters met a woman who had waited an hour and a half to see her brother only to be turned away. She told us how badly her brother was being treated and with tears in her eyes she begged for help.
Remarkably, she did not ask that he be represented by a lawyer, or for him to be set free, all she asked was that he be treated humanely.
Sadly, that is not a given in Essex County or anywhere else that immigrants are being held on behalf of ICE in the United States.
Please watch the video and share it with everyone you know.
And then sign the petition to revoke the ICE contract in Essex County
Then ask your friends to do the same.
…Because we need help from each and every one of you.
