Hunger Strike at Immigration Prison

ROJ Trainer Brenda Zook Friesen has a connection to an inmate at this immigration prison, run by for-profit company GEO Group. Prisoners, detained for not having immigrations papers, are protesting deportation policies as well as inhumane conditions at the prison. A hunger strike started a couple weeks ago, peaked at 750 prisoners, with two remaining strikers. The strike has also spread to a Texas immigration prison, run by the GEO Group.

Not One More Deportation is running a campaign in support of the prisoners.
