Un Dia Sin Fronteras (participant)




We stand up against injustice, we pray for peace



On the 4th of July, 2011, we mourn the loss of freedom.  Our country is imprisoning more people than ever before.  The Obama Administration is deporting more people in the history of our nation, about 450,000 people last year alone.  The deaths in the desert from an unjust immigration system have risen to over 230 people last year, and those are the ones who were founds.  Countless fathers, daughters and relatives have disappeared into the desert between the US and Mexico, never to be heard from again.



Meanwhile, GEO Group and Corections Corporation of America are cleaning house at tax payer’s expense.  They make over $130 per day for every person they incarcerate.  These prisons-for-profit are not happy with the millions of dollars they are milking from tax payers.  They want more beds, and obviously more prisoners!  Immigrants make up a significant portion of the population of these prisons for hire.



Today, we met at the GEO facility and held a vigil.  We heard testimony from those who have been detained before as to the desperate conditions of the people held inside.  For example, we heard the story of the person whose cell block was locked down for three days because they asked for toilet paper.  Five rolls for 70 men was plenty, greedy GEO claimed.  For merely making the request, prisoners were confined to their tiny cells for three days.


E-Z to Get In, Hard to Get Out

These are people who came to this country looking for opportunities, with no criminal histories, with families and employers who depend upon them.  These are people who pay taxes, own businesses and contribute to the well being of their community.  These are Dream Students, people of faith, parents, uncles, grandparents, babies.


A company whose morality allows the incarceration of people for profit has no problem leaving inmates “unclean” to make a few more cents.  GEO is a company whose human rights record is far less than stellar.  This extra harsh treatment will be one of the last memories some immigrants have of the US on 4th of July.  An uncaring nation which allows private companies to make a buck at their expense.


We ask you to join us at the next vigil.  It is held the first Monday of every monthy.  Come on by 37th and Peoria in Aurora Colorado.  Tell your story.  Share your outrage.  Let your voice be heard.  We cannot be a free nation when we remain silent while unjust conditions continue.
