Immigration detention is deadly.
Since 2003, 190 people have died in immigrant detention. The past three years (2016 -2019) mark an unprecedented increase in the number of deaths in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody. You can read the names of these individuals on this poster; among them are two children, Felipe Alonzo-Gomez and Jakelin Amei Rosmery Caal Maquin, who died while detained by Customs and Border Patrol (CBP). Notably, CBP is not legally required to report the names of those who perish in their custody. Twenty-eight miscarriages (In FY 2017-18) and a stillbirth (2019) were reported among the women in ICE custody. The loss of life in custody cages is pervasive in a system that neglects, abuses, isolates, and tortures those it swallows up.
*Nineteen month old Mariee Juárez died soon after being released from ICE custody.

Many artists, including many of us at Justseeds, are facing acute economic consequences as a result of the COVID19 pandemic:
cancelled art fairs, lost opportunities, dwindling sales. If you were thinking about supporting your friendly neighborhood radical artists’ cooperative by picking up a print, poster or book from our shop, now would be a great time, and much appreciated!
