#Not1More Deportation

Free the Hunger Striking Detainees

strike supporterAt any given time, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), holds up to 34,000 people in detention centers as they await immigration court dates or possible deportation.

In recent months, people locked inside detention centers across the country have responded to their inhumane treatment and imprisonment with the drastic measure of denying themselves food in hunger strikes. Strikers are demanding their immediate release!

In response, instead of investigating conditions or freeing the strikers, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has started to retaliate against the brave protesters. Hunger strikers have been thrown in solitary confinement, relocated to new facilities, threatened with expedited deportation, silenced, and cut off from any news reports about what is going on inside other facilities.

But the strikers are refusing to be silenced as support on the outside grows.

Strike support committee members include:
CIVIC, Desis Rising Up and Moving (DRUM), Georgia Detention Watch, Grassroots Leadership, IYC, #Not1More, Northwest Detention Center Resistance, and more.

To: ICE Director Sarah Saldaña

I am writing in support of immigrant detainees on hunger strike in multiple ICE facilities around the U.S. Instead of punishment and retaliation, ICE should immediately release them and investigate the conditions that caused their whistleblowing activity.

Thank you,
