At last night’s town hall, Representative Mark DeSaulnier responded to my question about the detention center in Homestead, FL. Please enjoy his response. In a nutshell, the new congress is on it. Let us help them.
Even while their access to the streets leading into the center are being restricted by intimidation and threats, they report how buoyed the teenagers are when they see the witnesses and their signs.
I could not help my father. I cannot go back in time to a story before my birth and spare the 4 year old who would later raise me. However, I can try to help children now.
