Every year thousands of asylum seekers flee to America after facing great persecution in their homeland only to be thrown into our prisons and stripped of their possessions and dignity.
Refugees in the United States share their stories:
"The jail guards told us to take off all of our clothes, and then take showers. After showering, I was standing there naked, and then I was given a prison uniform. The whole process was surprising to me, and very embarrassing, but when you’re in jail, you have to do as you are told." ~ Somalian refugee who was detained for four months in a California Detention Center before being granted asylum.
"I was crying in jail. I was hungry. I was surprised to be in jail. I had never committed a crime, and suddenly I was in jail." ~ Ethiopian Refugee who was detained for six months in a Virginia jail before gaining asylum.
Let us keep watch with You.
