“The atrocities being committed by ICE against women, children, and families is horrific, though not new. The United States is a history of racism, abuse, and neglect towards immigrants and indigenous people. Enough is enough.

Bloomington-Normal DSA Condemns Sheriff’s Efforts to Restrict Free Speech and Reaffirm’s Commitment to Black Liberation & Solidarity with Black Lives Matter Bloomington-Normal

We warned you back in March that COVID-19 would certainly reach the jail and now it’s here. Back in March, Sheriff Sandage refused IC Solutions’ offer for free video visitations for detainees in the jail to keep in touch with loved ones on the outside.
