Last year, when California voters passed a proposition which reduced charges like hers, Rajshree thought she was coming home, but instead was transfered to immigration detention.
Rajeshree has been granted a $10,000 bond but remains locked up because she cannot afford it. Please make a donation to support her release.
Rajeshree is detained at the Yuba County Jail. Even though she has lived in the United States as a permanent resident since she was 10 years-old, a series of “tough on crime” laws for immigrants passed in the 1990s made her subject to mandatory detention and almost mandatory deportation.
Remember to make a donation, and find out more about Rashree’s story and the relationship between violence, incarceration and deportation in “Here is how shoplifting a gardenhose gets you a life sentence.”.
