REALTalk ~ Ann Lewis ~ Immigrant Detention Center

January 9th, 2018 by Susan McCabe & Kiya Bodding

Our government’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) department operates the nation’s largest immigrant detention center in Tacoma, WA, right across the Sound from Vashon.  Islander Ann Lewis of Cascade Global Consulting has been working with detainees at the facility, and joins host Susan McCabe to tell the stories you won’t hear from ICE, the government or even in the media.  Hear how immigrants, legal and otherwise, are held without due course for months, and some even for years. Find out the human impact of this kind of detention.  It’s sure to be REAL.

For more information and to volunteer with Advocates for Immigration, go to or to  (Northwest Immigrant Rights Project).
Vashon Island resident and immigration attorney Robert Gibbs will speak January 14, 2018 at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship meeting, 9:45AM and at a meeting of Indivisible Vashon, January 22, 2018, 7PM in the Sheffield Building.
