29, a queer migrant of faith and Public Health organizer who grew up in the San Fernando Valley said, “How can we take pride in saying God bless America when right here in Santa Ana we have a detention center making daily profit from detaining and traumatizing LGBTQ immigrants. Every day our undocumented Trans and Queer siblings face harassment, segregation, and solitary confinement in the detention machine. Authorities might claim it is safer for our marginalized population to be locked in LGBTQ pots inside detention centers, but I refuse to believe that’s the safe haven we pray and provide for UndocuTrans and UndocuQueer siblings in the U.S. I am risking arrest because my family values, faith, and roots will not allow me to remain silent or delay injustice, so let’s abolish the criminalization and dehumanization of LGBTQ people and abolish the prison industrial complex together! Don’t stop at marriage, Trans and Queer folks continue being incarcerated and deported. Not one more.”
