What immigration detention did to my mental health.
Graciela Lopez

I am appalled by the responses so far in this thread. I’m sorry you had to go through such a painful experience. Pressuring people who do not speak or read English well to sign legal papers in English is not legal, but that doesn’t stop ICE. Most of our ancestors could not speak English when they immigrated to this country, it isn’t a requirement. The whole immigration system is broken, refugees are being turned away at the border when they ask for asylum (not legal under international law) and clearly things need to change.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
