What: Vigil @ Karnes Detention Center during visit by ICE Director Sarah Saldana
When: TOMORROW THURSDAY, APRIL 16, 7 TO 9 PM
Where: In front of the Karnes detention center, 409 FM 1144, Karnes City, Texas, 78118
Why: Sarah Saldana, ICE Director, is visiting the center Thursday and Friday April 16 and 17.
10 women are on a partial fast, eating once a day only. ICE has threatened to take their children away because the fast will “affect their health” and they will “lose their capacity to care for their children.”
Among the women is Delmy Pineda (A# 077 657 488) who has been imprisoned since September 2014, now going on 8 months with her 11 year old son who is having a very hard time coping with this.
Directions: Travel south on I-37. Exit 181 toward Floresville. Go through Floresville, Poth, Hobson. When you get to the very entrance of Karnes City, there is road FM 1144, take a right. The detention Center is ¼ mile from that corner. We will be in front on the road. It is a 45 minute drive.
Please leave San Antonio around 6 pm.
