"The guard grabbed the boy by the neck and dragged him away. We have never seen this boy again." These are children. Seeking asylum & safety. They are not criminals. Nothing about this is ok. TY @closethecampsdetroit

Children. Little children, with family already in the US who would take them. This is on us.

These children are in limbo. Separated from family, routine interrupted, waiting for some sense of security and normalcy.

Our adults are behaving like petulant children or worse, and the children are forced to leave their childhood to parent each other. The trauma from this will be lifelong.

Imagine if this was your own child. Cooped up in a small room day in & day out, the highlight of the day being able to go out in the hall while the room is cleaned. There are emotional & physiologic consequences from these restrictions.

“we are all alone” Children should be in the loving care of their family, not alone, caring for one each other in a detention facility. This beautiful work is from Fritz's Stitches who shared it on FB & IG

Children belong w/ loved ones in the community, allowed to heal the wounds of any trauma they have experienced, we should not be adding to it. TY

“there is not enough room for everyone to sleep at the same time. People put their mats in the bathroom...” This is not safe and sanitary, and it certainly is not humane. Thank you
