Keeping families together and advocating against deportations

Felipe's Story

"They’re bringing the food to our bunks. We all have fever and officers say they can’t help us. They’ve taken people with the virus."


"This is a business, we want them to decide if they want to send us to our countries, send us now, they need to decide what they’re doing with us because we don’t want to die here. Every time we ask an officer they say we are here for our own good but we are all getting sick. They say we are sick because of allergies to pollen but that has never happened to me. Now they’ll call me and threaten me. 98 people with fever in the same unit. They have only isolated 7."


"Nos están trayendo las comida aquí a los bunques. Todos tenemos fiebre, y los oficiales dicen que no nos pueden ayudar. Han sacado casos de coronavirus del centro. Esto es un negocio, queremos que si nos quieren mandar a nuestros países, que nos manden ya, que determinen lo que quieren hacer con nosotros porque no nos queremos morir aquí. Cada vez que le preguntamos a un oficial nos dicen que estamos aquí por nuestro propio bien, pero nos estamos enfermando todos. Nos dicen que estamos todos así por el polen, pero a mi eso nunca me había pasado. Ahorita me llaman y nos amenazan. 98 personas con fiebre en un bunque. Han aislado a 7."
