Our country is at its best when we welcome people seeking refuge with humanity, dignity, and respect. It’s time to Reimagine Safety and demand that President Biden and DHS Secretary Mayorkas invest in the resources that truly keep Black, brown, and immigrant communities safe!
Jorge Rondon Torrealba is a queer immigrant from Venezuela who has been detained for nearly a year in the Krome Detention Center in Florida, isolated from his home & community in New York.
The ICE director in Florida has allowed Jorge to remain imprisoned where he has faced sexual and gender based violence. So now we’re demanding that Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Mayorkas use his power to free Jorge NOW!
Each day Jorge stays in detention he remains at risk for further abuse. If Jorge is deported, not only would he be completely uprooted from the only life he has known here in the United States since 3 years old, he will face violence for being openly gay in Venezuela.
You can support Jorge right now by sending a letter!
SEND A LETTER and call on DHS Secretary Mayorkas to FREE JORGE NOW!
We are calling on President Biden and DHS Secretary Mayorkas to stop the expansion of the deportation machine by ending 287(g) agreements, closing immigration detention centers, and prohibiting further investment in dangerous surveillance tech.
Since President Biden took office, he has called for over $23 billion to fund ICE and CBP’s deadly detention and deportation practices that have detained, deported, and expelled upwards of 2 million people.
