Ayúdanos a unir a la comunidad contra la detención de inmigrantes.

El viernes 12 de julio, de 6:00 a 8:00 pm en la Iglesia Christ Episcopal en 410 Grand Avenue, Waukegan, realizaremos una vigilia para las miles de personas y niños detenidos en campos de concentración. Tendremos varios oradores que hablarán sobre la polízas de inmigración, las condiciones de los campamentos de migrantes y las acciones que podemos tomar diariamente para terminar la detención de inmigrantes.

Right now, immigrants are being housed in inhumane conditions with spoiled food and severe overcrowding; imagine 155 people in a room for 35 and migrants standing for weeks. Scholars are comparing migrant camps to concentration camps because people are being placed in them without proper court hearings and are not receiving appropriate healthcare or adequate food.

In the past 40 days, 60,000 migrant kids entered DHS custody. The president is also canceling English classes and recreation for migrant children in camps, when recreation is legally required in the US for minors.

Below are resources with information regarding migrant camp conditions:

En este momento, los inmigrantes están siendo alojados en condiciones inhumanas con alimentos expirados y un congestionamiento severo; Imagina a 155 personas en una habitación para 35 y migrantes de pie durante semanas. Académicos están comparando los campos de migrantes con los campos de concentración porque autoridades han encarcelado a migrantes sin las audiencias judiciales adecuadas y porque no les estan dando la atención médica y alimentos adecuados.

En los últimos 40 días, 60,000 niños migrantes ingresaron bajo la custodia del DHS. El presidente también está cancelando clases de inglés y recreación para niños migrantes en campamentos, cuando la recreación es legalmente requerida en los Estados Unidos para menores.
