Immigration Detention and International Migrants Day

As Kevin Johnson noted earlier, today is International Migrants Day. Here's a related message from Breakthrough.TV

Today, on December 18th, as we mark International Migrants Day, let us remember the thousands of people in the U.S. languishing in immigrant detention suffering from bad conditions and no due process. These issues have been documented most recently in the ACLU report:"Detention and Deportation in the Age of ICE."

Experience these conditions first hand in our 3D-interactive project - End Homeland Guantanamos.

Let's take this opportunity to ask President elect Obama to restore due process and human rights in immigration policy.  When we let the government deny due process and human rights to some, all of our freedoms are at risk.
