VIDEO sent to me from the Krome detention center. The detainee is reading a statement written by 62 inmates who launched a hunger strike Thursday, begging that they be released. “If we have the unfortunate luck that we die, we can at least be with our families,” he said.

This is the second recent hunger strike launched inside South FL immigration detention centers. Detainees are scared to die behind bars amid the coronavirus pandemic. Tomorrow will be day 4 of a hunger strike inside the Monroe County detention center:

Full disclosure: I spoke to both detainees on the phone, as well as their families, after I was sent this video. They gave me permission to publish the footage.

People who just say “if they just came here legally” have no clue on how immigration policies and enforcement actually work. How can we educate better? Good journalism is only the start. So thank you.

Just exactly what freebies are u talking about? Bc they don't qualify for food stamps, health care, anything really and they're the ones working their ass off in the fields getting exposed to get food for us bc the US is greedy as fuck and wants to overstock on food right now

These are criminals or just illegal immigrants? If the former they should be deported immediately

A detention center isn’t punitive so these aren’t criminals being punished for crimes. People who have been convicted of a crime go to prison. A lot of them are immigrants who are awaiting trial for asylum (legal way to enter our country) or legally fighting their deportation
