PORTLANDERS, JOIN A PARTY ON THE FOURTH TUESDAY OF EVERY MONTH. SIGN UP HERE
Yesterday thousands demanded the Trump administration #CloseTheCamps – we must all bear witness and act.
“The day after we arrived here, my baby began vomiting and having diarrhea. I asked to see a doctor and they did not take us. I asked again the next day and the guard said “She doesn’t have the face of a sick baby. She doesn’t need to see a doctor.” My baby daughter has not had medicine since we first arrived. She has a very bad cough, fever and continues to vomit and have diarrhea.”
“They told us that we could only have one layer of clothing, and they threw away the rest of our clothes in the garbage.”
“The conditions are very crowded in the cage where I am at. There are about 75 people each night that I have been here. We sleep literally stacked on top of each other should to shoulder. So many are sick. On any given day there are at least 20 that are sick. They try to separate the ones that are sick, so that means people come and go. But not everyone goes if they are sick.”
Do not look away. Call every day until they #CloseTheCamps
