Broward Transitional Center: More Abuse Reported. Saturday Protest Planned
Expelled November 1 after months of suffering at the Pompano Beach facility, Angel's recuperating now in a Lake Worth sanctuary home, still in pain and nursing a hernia the size of a baseball. It's a condition he says GEO left untreated -- except for some Advil -- for three months.
Families of detainees from around South Floridan and as far off as Tampa will be converging in front of BTC from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to demand the freedom of their loved ones. Sponsored by the NIYA ( National Immigrant Youth Alliance ) and DreamActivist Florida , local contact for the protest is Radym Berlinger, at 561-876-9035.
