As the global pandemic ramps up, few of us would imagine that our government would unnecessarily expose people to the novel coronavirsus. Yet the Trump administration has repeatedly shown it is willing to do just that to immigrant communities in the United States, writes J. Larry Brown, president of Chances for Children International. He served on the faculty of the Harvard School of Public Health and Tufts Medical School.⁠
⁠
By far, the most egregious example are detention centers, he writes. Across the country, the Department of Homeland Security operates 137 of these facilities where many immigrant men and women are incarcerated simply because they overstayed a visa or need to file more paperwork. Many have no charge against them at all but are being held after appearing at the border to request asylum, as is their lawful right.⁠
⁠
They are now in jail even though they played by the rules. Most of those being held are accused of no criminal behavior and pose no threat to public safety, he writes.⁠
⁠
"It is as if they are the unwitting victims of a cruel experiment by DHS: Gather up a group of immigrants fleeing violence in their home countries. Jail them even when they have no criminal records. Hold them together in close proximity while a lethal pandemic ravages the nation. Give them no masks or protective equipment. Provide them with no advice on how to protect themselves. And then see what happens," writes Brown.⁠
⁠
"In other words, DHS is knowingly and needlessly exposing these people to severe and even deadly risks. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which oversees DHS detention centers, did not respond to requests for comment."⁠

If you claim you cannot be friends with Immigrants, Migrants, & Asylum-Seekers because of their status, then your theology is distorted.

I thought about a place I used to patronise. I visit it often because the lady boss and the taste of her food reminded me of home. It is a place I am permitted to converse in my mother tongue, where I do not find myself tongue-tied in the inconveniences of a dominant spoken word. A place where family and foreign land intermingle and where I seek an odd sense of comfort in the familiarity of a foreign home. It is funny what absence can do to you, how you only realise its true value when this co-presence is gone. -

(And here are the pictures to prove it😋😘) Life was hard for me as a 10 year old. I landed at Heathrow Airport clutching my favourite cloth doll wrapped in my thin cardigan✈. English wasn't my first, or even second language. I had to learn it from scratch. My country was at war and wasn't safe to go back to. Just as I thought I was in a safe place I had to face the bullies.😨 LINK IN BIO

This #COVID-19 fight, like many others, can affect vulnerable #immigrant communities the most. Even when immigrants make it to the hospital, many face #LanguageBarriers that can be the difference between #life or #death. Every patient has the right to an #interpreter, but there are likely to be shortages as #COVID19 cases grow across the country. .

I finally gave up when my Amin and Artin begged me to close the computer and head out. Now, I wished I did more of that! .
What we have today might be exactly what we wished we had a month from now. .
Cherish your moments!
.
Enjoy your life!
.
As hard as it is to stay home, we are blessed to have all we have!
.
چند مدت پیش با اصرار امین و آرتین رفتیم بیرون. امین میدویید، آرتین دوچرخه سواری میکرد، من و پشمی هم قدم میزدیم. پریدم روی ریل کنار پیاده رو و بالانسم رو امتحان کردم. هنوز بد نبود. .
چقدر الان دوست داشتم اون روزها بود. دیگه برا بیرون رفتن کسی اصرار نمیکنه. .
چیزهایی که امروز داریم، ممکنه همون چیزهایی باشن که یه ماه دیگه آرزوشون رو میکنیم.
.
هر چقدر سخت، از توی خونه موندن کنار هم لذت ببریم.
