An 11-person delegation representing FIRE (Fight for Im/migrants and Refugees Everywhere) visited the South Texas Human Rights Center in Falfurrias, Texas, on June 30.Sixty im/migrant prisoners began a hunger strike July 17 at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in the Bristol County House of Corrections complex in North Dartmouth, Mass. Another 72 prisoners joined this bold action on July 20. These detainees, some undergoing removal proceedings and others awaiting deportation, are protesting the deplorable conditions of their captivity.Chief among their complaints are “nearly nonexistent medical care, inedible food, abuse from facility employees and exorbitant commissary prices,” says a press release issued July 19 by Families for Freedom, a multinational, New York-based immigrant rights organization and mobilizing center for migrants fighting deportation.Detainees called the group’s hotline to ask for help in publicizing their protests over the facility’s terrible conditions. They say the food served them is not nutritious and often rotten, and they are ignored if they get food poisoning. It can take up to two weeks to get needed medical care, if it’s provided at all. One prisoner with a broken hand has not seen a doctor for three weeks. People having seizures get no care, and those needing medications don’t get them.Hunger strikers report that showers and bathrooms are full of mold. Phone and commissary prices are double — or more — the cost outside the prison, but the facility’s food is so bad that detainees must buy food at the canteen. They report being subjected to racist and other verbal abuse by guards, as well as inhumane treatment, including guards laughing at prisoners who faint from hunger.Families for Freedom reports: “Bristol County House of Corrections is a facility with a history of mistreatment” and high suicide rates. “Sheriff Thomas Hobson, a Trump fan, is known for his exceptional brutality, misconduct, including receiving kickbacks from prison telecoms and his proposal to use prison labor from his county to build Trump’s border wall.” (Press release, tinyurl.com/y9padac4)The hunger strikers’ Call to Action succinctly lists their demands for proper medical care, nutritious food and essential hygienic equipment and services. They ask supporters to advocate for them by calling the following officials to ask that their demands be met: Bristol County Detention Facility at 508-995-6400 and Acting ICE Field Office Directors Thomas Brophy and James Rutherford at 781-359-7500. Women migrants resist!Across the country, im/migrants are protesting horrendous conditions of their captivity through whatever means they can. Women migrants held at the Port Isabel Detention Center, a prison-like ICE facility in Los Fresnos, Texas, have intense feelings of isolation, grief and anxiety, exacerbated by separation from relatives, especially their children. The women are even cruelly prohibited from hugging each other for comfort. Yet they have found ways to resist.Some women at Port Isabel are objecting to the lack of telephone calls with their children by staging rolling hunger strikes. Most women have only been allowed a few calls. The Intercept blog reported that as of July 18, about 15 women had been alternating fasting days for two weeks — not eating for two days, after which another group fasts for two days.Debbie Nathan, Intercept’s reporter, spoke with 24 women detainees, including one who had not been allowed to call her child for several weeks. After her two-day hunger strike, this woman was permitted three calls. Despite being threatened with placement in solitary confinement if they fast, a number are courageously doing it anyway.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

pinkomelet/iStockBy ABC News(SKAGWAY, Ak.) — Hours before an ABC News story about the last COVID-free counties in America published last week, one on the list, Skagway, a 1,000-person community nestled in the Alaskan panhandle, was diagnosing its first coronavirus case. Over the next three days, five people would test positive for COVID-19 in what Mayor Andrew Cremata referred to as “a community spread-type event.”“A lot of people are blaming the media, saying they jinxed us,” Cremata said.While five cases might not sound concerning in contrast to the hundreds of thousands of infections that big cities like New York and Los Angeles have reported, Skagway’s five infections prompted swift action: Local officials initiated widespread testing and a shelter-in-place directive for all residents.“You can market yourself as the community that’s COVID-free, but you also have to be realistic,” Cremata said. “I’d rather be the community that deftly handled the outbreak when it arose.”Local officials, including the mayor, city manager, police and fire chiefs had an emergency plan in place for when the first case arrived, Cremata explained. The Skagway community also rose to the occasion, he added. One of the individuals who tested positive released their name publicly to speed up contact tracing. Clinic staff worked through the weekend to provide COVID testing and send the test kits on an airplane to Juneau to be analyzed. Residents lit candles in their windows for the health care workers helping around the clock to keep everyone safe.That community effort was necessitated in part by Skagway’s remote location. The picturesque cruise ship destination, which was a major hub for tourists before the pandemic, isn’t easy to drive to and the border between nearby Canada is closed because of the pandemic. Without summer tourism, the economy is at a standstill and the population has shrunk to offseason levels.Skagway is also considered a “medically underserved area” by the Department of Health and Human Services, meaning there are too few primary care doctors for the population. There’s no hospital. If someone has a serious medical emergency, like a heart attack, they’re airlifted out by helicopter for treatment.Then there’s the reality of small-town living, where everyone interacts with everyone. “Even under normal circumstances, if somebody gets a cold in town it spreads like wildfire,” Cremata said. “With something as contagious as COVID, we had to have protocols that recognized our unique situation.”“It’s a pandemic,” he added. “It’s going to seep into every nook and cranny.”As of Tuesday, the three remaining locations on ABC News’ COVID-free counties list are Loving, Texas; Esmeralda County, Nevada; and Kalawao County, Hawaii.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
