It was not without difficulty but we have freed yet another person from detention through our Families Reunidas Bond Program, Kuo. He is a 22 year old Chinese asylum seeker who was in detention for an alarming 11 months. He was detained in the Otay Mesa Detention Center, which continues to have an extreme number of COVID cases, and we are so glad to have one less person exposed.
We cannot stress enough the urgency of bonding people out of detention centers, as we have now seen 21 confirmed deaths in ICE custody, and the conditions in detention centers across the US continue to be negligent and horrifying. Kuo is now headed to New York to start a new life with his sponsor. We could not have achieved his freedom without the help of Freedom For Immigrants and without all of your donations.
We need YOUR help to save lives! Our bond funds are running low and we need your support more than ever in order to free our folks. All donations make a difference no matter the amount, and every dollar is spent towards getting someone out of detention!
