As you may have heard, ICE officials have banned both Bud Conlin and Wendy King from visiting with people detained at Krome Detention Center in Miami, with no explanation. Bud was denied entry for his two scheduled visits on January 9th, 2020. Wendy was notified she was banned via email one week later, on January 16th, 2020.
Banning visitors and organization leaders has become a disturbing trend in recent months, as visitation programs throughout the south have experienced total and individual bans by ICE.
Fortunately, FOMDD is bigger than just two people. We are a whole community of people dedicated to loving and protecting our neighbors, and will continue showing up week in and week out to visit with our friends in detention while we fight this unconstitutional ban with our partners at Freedom for Immigrants, Florida Immigrant Coalition and United We Dream.
