CITIZENS CHALLENGE HEALTH AGENCY’S INVESTIGATION OF DETENTION CENTER ABUSE, AND WILL ANNOUNCE DEMANDS FOR GOVERNOR AND OTHERS AT THE PRESS CONFERENCE
Uncage and Reunite Families, a volunteer grassroots group, demands that those responsible release and reunify immigrant children with their families! They were separated and detained as they crossed the U.S. border, and we are outraged at the lack of accountability from government agencies that have oversight! The children are suffering emotional trauma, physical and/or sexual abuse, and malnutrition, and they are deprived of humane treatment and basic needs.
