Why is this important?
It’s hard to an estimate official number on how many queer and gender-nonconforming people ICE is currently detaining, but Francisco is one of them. He has been detained at Dodge Detention Center since October of 2018, far from his friends and the community that is fighting for his release. We were connected with Francisco in a few days after he was detained by ICE through his mother who gave us a call requesting support.
While detained, Francisco has faced retaliation by detention officers and was put in solitary confinement for helping other detained people. Francisco suffers from mental health conditions for which he has not received adequate help while in detention. Although he was granted asylum, he was denied parole. For this reason, his legal team is filing habeas requesting his release from detention. We are demanding that Francisco be released!
