StopTheCaging | NoMoreDeaths Vigil at Broadview Detention Center

November 1, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Since 2003, 164 men and women have died in immigration detention. This year alone, there have been ten deaths in detention centers at the hands of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) nationwide.

On November 1st, community members and organizations are coming together for Detention Watch Network’s Day of the Dead Days of Action to honor and remember the individuals that have died in immigration detention.

Join us on November 1st for a vigil outside the Broadview Detention Center, where in 2010 Jose Antonio Hernandez-Gomez lost his life when he was detained.

On this day we will also continue community support for Gualberto, currently detained at Tri-County Detention Center. Gualberto is in detention after ICE conducted a raid on a corner and racially profiled day laborers as they waited for work. Gualberto’s life is in danger in detention, a recent report by DWN found that “there have been 56 deaths in ICE custody during the Obama administration, including six suicides.” (1)
