Immigrant detention breeds resistance

first_imgTacoma, Wash. — It was “Free Saja” Day on Oct. 21 at the Northwest Detention Center as people rallied to stop Saja Tunkara’s threatened deportation and to support his immediate need for health care. Tunkara is from Sierra Leone. He and his partner, ShaCorrie Tunkara, have two children.His partner told the rally that Tunkara had been scheduled for surgery to remove a tumor at a hospital when he was picked up and imprisoned last January. He was not let out for the scheduled surgery, and the detention center allowed him to suffer greatly for three months. The detention center’s so-called Immigrant and Customs Health Service finally allowed him to have surgery on his neck, but by then the tumor had grown from the size of a quarter to that of an egg. This is a form of torture. Tunkara has also had numerous problems since the surgery due to U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement’s neglect. He has suffered a loss of vision, ShaCorrie Tunkara told the crowd, as the neglect continues.The rally was called by the Northwest Detention Center Resistance, which is also fighting to stop his threatened deportation. ShaCorrie Tunkara thanked the crowd for supportive phone calls, Facebook support and love, which has probably helped hold up Saja’s deportation so far.Another prisoner is now on the 61st day of a hunger strike at the NWDC, as of this writing. A Mongolian man from Russia, he is demanding health care for himself and others as well as his freedom. Other prisoners have fasted with him.There were two mass medical emergencies at the NWDC in September. One was a slag pile fire at Simon Metals, right next to the prison on the Tacoma tideflats industrial site. The fire burned for 10 hours before the fire department finally put it out. Prisoners reported coughing and vomiting, but were not even told what caused the fumes.The other emergency was a severe measles outbreak. NWDC Resistance charged the prison with negligence and estimated the epidemic could have reached 400 out of 1,575 prisoners.All these incidents have increased demands on the Tacoma City Council to shut the immigration prison down. Medical neglect is the top grievance of prisoners in immigration prisons, according to Freedom for Immigrants, a prisoners advocacy group. ICE announced in June that it would seek up to 15,000 additional beds in privately run detention prisons. A huge prison built to hold up to 3,800 children has been opened in the desert at Tornillo, Texas.The increase in the torture and bondage of immigrants is bound to fan the flames of resistance, as seen by mass demonstrations against detentions in June and by current Central American im/migrant caravans.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The city provided the waste stations.Watts said the dog waste system has made the park more inviting.“The intention was to make it dog-friendly, not to get onto people about picking up their dog’s waste,” she said. “We’re saying we’re encouraging people to come here, bring their dog and to have fun.”The city of Fort Worth recently provided Bluebonnet Circle Park with a dog waste system. The bags are free for dog owners to use.The concert is also being held to spread what the Blue Zones Project stands for living a healthy lifestyle.

Professional teen race car driver hopes to be a role model like Danica Patrick

first_imgMarch 23, 2018 /Sports News – National Professional teen race car driver hopes to be a role model like Danica Patrick FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Professional race car driver Aurora Straus put the brakes on her admission to Harvard to pursue her racing career full-time and said she hopes to inspire a new generation of girls.The 19-year-old from Cold Spring, New York, told Good Morning America that while motorsports have been predominately male, she has already seen a big shift and hopes to “keep pushing forward.”“The face of the sport has changed a lot in recent years, and a lot of that is due to huge role models like Danica Patrick,” Straus said. “For every one racer or crew member out there that treats me differently because I’m a girl, I’ve met 50 that genuinely care about me, want me to succeed and think of me as a racer before a girl.”Straus said she was 13 when she got behind the wheel for the first time. She was driving a Mazda Miata with an instructor.“I almost ran into his rental car,” she said. “But then I went out on track for the first time. And going over 100 miles an hour is the most remarkable feeling, and once you do it, you fall down a rabbit hole and you’re doing that for the rest of your life.”The young pro will race this weekend in the Pirelli World Challenge in Austin, Texas. One of her heroes had a message for her before she hit the track.“Hey, Aurora. I’m Danica Patrick, and I just wanted to wish you the best of luck. Don’t forget to dream really, really, really big,” Patrick said in a video message that was played on Good Morning America.A stunned and excited Straus said, “That’s crazy,” and explained that Patrick was a “huge maverick” in changing the face of motorsports.“Danica, like other role models out there, they were the reason I got involved in the sport and the reason I was strong enough to keep pushing forward. And my goal is, 10 or 20 years from now, I want to be that Danica to a young girl who doesn’t know if she can make it in the industry,” Straus said.Straus graduated from Westchester High School last year and deferred her acceptance to Harvard, but said she eventually plans to study English and mechanical engineering at the Ivy League university.For now, she is taking the driver’s seat and going full speed toward her dreams.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
