Thank you to everyone who donated to help the Immigration Justice OutreachTeam raise money for the commissary accounts of people being detained by ICE.
Together we passed our goal to raise $500 for 20 detained individuals. A few of these folks are still being held in the Hardin County jail. Most have been shifted to other jails by ICE, and at least one was deported.
Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) and Iowans for Immigrant Freedom (IFIF) have been able to track those still in detention so they will receive funds. This money will allow those harmed by our government to contact families, friends, and legal assistance.
