#FREEBLANCA Let's reunite her with family!

Blanca Vasquez left her home to avoid the gang violence that led to the murder of her husband and threatened the safety of her two sons.  Instead of the welcoming embrace of asylum, her 12 year old son was sent to New York and she was detained in the El Paso County Detention Center.  Since October, she has been separated from her family and treated as a criminal for trying to survive.  This is a shameful act of cowardice, and we must assert that this is not the American way!  Let's spread the word and make sure ICE officials know that this heartless policy of dividing mothers from children at the border is unacceptable.  Furthermore, when our government dismisses asylum cases and criminalizes victims by detaining them, it is condoning murder and violence worldwide.  #FREEBLANCA
