As a front line community with a private Detention Camp, we ask that our public servants & authorities ensure dignity, safety and compassionate care, regardless of the age or legal status of the refugees being housed. Currently federal law allows ICE facilities to operate without oversight or supervision. We fully recognize that the Core Civic operation in Estancia, New Mexico is a recently, reopened prison that will be housing adult, male immigrants. Our elected, public servants must advocate for oversight, transparency and accountability in these ICE funded facilities. We ask for these protections to ensure the safety of immigrants, facility staff and the citizens.
'For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me' ~ Jesus of Nazareth, Matthew 25:35.
