Breaking news from the Otay Mesa Facility: Claudia Rueda (see blog post from yesterday) has been released on her own recognizance. On one hand, this is a tremendous victory for her and all who organized around her case. On the other hand, that was a month of her life spent in a detention facility that she won't get back, and tax dollars spent detaining a young college student who had herself organizing around justice and equality for her community. And more resources spent on her continued deportation case.
