Ya estoy harta! The U.S. has an extensive history of abuse and degradation of our folks and the recent policy which tears children apart from their families is widely visible and, of course, repugnant and egregious.

No one, let me repeat NO ONE should be locked in a cage...not parents, not children, not people migrating across land or sea, not folks who can't pay cash bail, not folks who violate their probation because they got caught smoking a joint. NO ONE!

And it's definitely about more than private institutions making money from the detention of folks. The carceral colonial project continually builds on legacies of violence. We have to connect the dots and see, as Konstantin Kilibarda notes that its time to dismantle "the architectures of global apartheid that mark certain bodies as targets for continuous surveillance, control, regulation, and violence."
