Angelique Mikail started this petition to Governor Gavin Newsom

I am writing this petition to inform others what is going on in some of California's immigration detention centers. As well as to spread awareness, to help make a change against these cruel and brutal policies.

For instance, how the Otay Mesa facility in San Diego County is planning to expand their facility. Along with how one detainee died from COVID-19 under Otay Mesa. Or how there were 81 confirmed cases of COVID-19 among immigrants detained at the Adelanto Immigration and Customs Enforcement, (ICE) Processing Center in San Bernardino County. Also, did you know that in 2020, around 21 people died in ICE custody? More than a third of the people that have died in ICE custody last year had been tested positive with Covid! Since 2004, around 214 people had died in total, due to ICE custody! 

What I'm asking for is to give the migrants in California's detention centers the right  proper care, plus healthcare treatment! It's already unfair how migrants are sent away like this! Sleeping on cold, hard concrete. Being torn away from your families. Just imagine the impact they're going through!

If you would like to show your support towards this, there have been statewide protests going on. A goal for one of the statewide protests was to hold private prison companies accountable for any medical abuses or harmful neglect of detainees. Therefore, you can go out and protest for immigration rights. But if you want to keep it safe, due to covid, then you should consider supporting groups. Some I recommend are InformedImmigrant.com, The Young Center for Immigrant Children, and The ACLU. It would be amazing, and thoughtful to show your support! Thank you for your consideration!
