HAPPENING NOW: #JewsAgainstICE protesting Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health in Rosemont, PA, to demand in solidarity with @Vamos_Juntos_ that Devereux cancel its $14 million plans to open an ORR detention center for 42 immigrant children in Devon, PA.

We are protesting child detention camps opening in our own backyards in PA. We are protesting corporations and organizations profiting from collaborating and working with DHS and ICE. We are saying #NeverAgainParaNadie.
BREAKING: #JewsAgainstICE are blocking the entrance to Devereux Behavioral Health. We are demanding, as Jews who have heard the message of #NeverAgain our whole lives, that Devereux end its plan to build a $14 million child detention center.
This violence isn’t just happening at the border. And wherever we see this injustice and violence, we have a moral obligation to say #NeverAgainIsNow and make business as usual impossible.
Organizations like Devereux use language of mental health and rehabilitation to justify caging children. This isn’t new for them, but what’s new is that this time, we’re going to say NO with a united voice.

Erika Almiron, ED of @Vamos_Juntos_, on the realities of life for kids in these detention centers.

“It’s not a “shelter,” it’s a jail!”
We’re currently saying the Mourner’s Kaddish for immigrant children killed in custody.

These kids were murdered by a system that values profit over human life. We’re saying #NeverAgain, we’re saying #FreeThemAll because children’s lives matter more than money.
We have now effectively shut down ALL ENTRANCES AND EXITS to Devereux.

What does it feel like to not be able to go home at the end of the day? This is but a small taste of what the children in their proposed detention center, and in ICE & CBP custody around the US, will feel.

We’ve just heard that the police won’t be arresting anyone. We’re closing- but with the promise that we’ll be back, and we won’t be letting Devereux’s hatred and abuse in PA go unchallenged.
This doesn’t end today in Rosemont, PA. It goes on tomorrow and the next day, all over the country. Join us in saying #NeverAgainParaNadie
