My name is [redacted] and I have a one year old son here where I am being detained for the past seven months. I was detained on July 30, 2014 and I was in the “Ice box” for 7 days and came here to Karnes on August 7, 2014 and since that date I am still here. I can’t stand to be here anymore. I am desperate, I don’t like the food anymore, and I don’t want to be here. My son’s first birthday was here. I would like to get out of here. I’ve been here for a long time. I would like you to help us get out. I pray to God. Only God has given me the strength to bear all of this time here. With this I say goodbye.
