John Ferron, a U.S. veteran and father of eight, is detained at the Eloy Detention Center, a for-profit immigration detention center in Eloy, Arizona. After a 10-day hunger strike to protest his prolonged detention, John remains in solitary confinement.
He has no attorney, and he suffers from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, and Adjustment Disorder. We are asking the U.S. government to grant this veteran of the Vietnam War the dignity to mount a strong case in his defense from outside the detention facility walls. Please sign this petition to show your support for John and the thousands of U.S. veterans who have been detained and deported.
