750 Illegals Detained by ICE Go on Hunger Strike to Pressure Trump

In a gesture of goodwill toward their Norte Americano amigos, prisoners at an ICE detention facility in Seattle, Washington have decided to stop eating.

“We want to save zee taxpayers heez money,” said an inmate who identified himself as Juan.

Juan has also made an offer to Los Estados Unidos that few would refuse. He has promised that if released from prison that he will come to the homes of American citizens at 6 A.M. every morning for the next year, armed with his leafblower. Juan promises Americans a leaf-free future to show his love and loyalty to America.

Meanwhile, he promises not to eat a bite.

Let’s hear it for Juan in a million and his generosity.

A massive hunger strike at the Northwest Detention Center (NWDC) in Tacoma, Washington, entered its fifth day on Friday, with more than 750 immigrants detained at the facility joining the effort.

The detainees are demanding an improvement in quality of food, clarity and speed in their immigration proceedings, improved access to medical care, and the lowering of commissary prices.

The strike began at noon on Monday, when one hundred prisoners refused to eat their lunches. Maru Mora Villalpando, a spokeswoman for the activist coalition NWDC Resistance, told The Daily Beast that the current climate is the worst since President Donald Trump was elected.

Trump has announced stringent deportation policies and actions since his inauguration, including one national raid at the end of March that detained 367 undocumented immigrants in five separate operations, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the federal agency in charge of border security.

The Tacoma facility currently holds more than 1,400 immigrant detainees—almost at full capacity—all held under varying charges.

Although exact figures are unknown, one prisoner told The Daily Beast that the majority of inmates had no criminal record and were instead detained as a result of expired visas or illegally entering the country.

ICE would not confirm exact numbers regarding the NWDC’s current population.

Detainees in the facility receive only $1 per day for cleaning, cooking, and operationally running the prison. Strikers called for more in a letter that was circulated throughout NWDC prior to the strike, as well as demands that included expedited hearings, improvements to food and medical care, and price cuts to the commissary, where the cost of some items recently doubled.

One detainee, only identified as Christian, spoke to NWDC activists in a recording for their blog on Monday.

“The food they serve, they serve beans and rice seven days a week, three times a day,” Christian, who is about to turn 26, said in a conversation from inside the facility. “Commissary is very expensive and my family always gives us a little bit of money, and sometimes… spends hundreds of dollars.”

The following day, Christian was one of several detainees who were transported from NWDC in a two-bus transport to be deported to Mexico, according to Villalpando.

Even as more immigrants are deported, the facility’s population continues to grow, as indicated by a Facebook video posted by NWDC Resistance showing buses entering the prison grounds.

According to posts on the same Facebook page, another hunger striker, Johnathan Guzman, said “I am doing the hunger strike not just for me but for everyone out there in the future.”

  1. “The Tacoma facility currently holds more than 1,400 immigrant detainees—almost at full capacity—all held under varying charges.”

    All held under “varying charges”. Still calling them “immigrants”. Still dicking around with them. Still making sure they stay in Los Estados Unidos.

    ““The food they serve, they serve beans and rice seven days a week, three times a day,” Christian, who is about to turn 26,”

    Aww poor baby. I bet he would be eating a lot better in Mexico.

    “Although exact figures are unknown, one prisoner told The Daily Beast that the majority of inmates had no criminal record”

    Amazing isn’t it? They violate the law to come and stay here, yet still they have no criminal record. As if that twist makes all the difference.

    “According to posts on the same Facebook page, another hunger striker, Johnathan Guzman, said …”

    Color me surprised.

  3. This is off the topic, but I have no other place to vent. I was watching Tucker Carlson on live-stream and some advertisements came on. One ad was from USAA my bank and insurance company. The ad profiled a former female Marine mud-shark, her groid husband, and their half-breed picanninies. I threw up in my mouth a little. I really like USAA, but I am sick to death of this miscegenation agenda every time I turn around. It is bad enough that I live in a military town and see mud-sharkery and miscegenation galore. I want a new racial cleansing to sweep across the U.S. and put these people to the sword. Of course, we do not have swords anymore, so I guess that rope will have to do. We have plenty of rope.

    • That is disgusting. San Antonio is Military City, USA and it is filled with blacks paired with Asians, Mexicans, and some whites. I was shocked at how much of it there was when I first moved here 30 plus years ago.

      • You will be more shocking to learn about Royal Queen of England II. her prince grandson Harry is now dating biracial name, Meghan Markle.Meghan is now living with him not even marry yet it just ruins the Queen of England morals nothing new. even worst is that Harry’s parents haven’t formally meet Meghan’s parents. you have to check their background is far fetch like her African-America mother Doria Radlan just graduation from college to become a yoga teacher move to settle in Canadian.even more you will not be going to believe Harry’s mind is over the heel with Meghan Markle.the question mark whatever happen to Harry’s ex-girlfriends? why did he leave his every ex-girlfriend? why he decide that Meghan Markle is the one? because Meghan has now appeared 35 yrs old older than Harry 3 yrs apart she divorced her ex-husband name Trevor Engelson Trevor Engelson is an American film and television producer their marriage only last not long They couple separated just two years later and were divorced in August 2013, citing “irreconcilable differences”.A source told Woman’s Day magazine that her role as Rachel Zane on hit TV show Suits was to blame, they said: “Meghan landed her role in Suits just a few months before they married.
        “And despite being together for six years before getting hitched, things started to fall apart not long after the wedding.”The source added that a long distance relationship didn’t work for the former couple, they said: “They really battled with long distances.Meghan’s half sister name Samantha Grant had a warning message to prince Harry that Meghan has a thing for a ginger man and she is in for social ladder too. Meghan’s half brother Thomas Markle Jr, 50, allegedly held a gun to girlfriend Darlene Blount’s head.Prince Harry’s parents told him to break up with Meghan Markle because of that. guess they’re still together ever since they living together in England. Meghan Markle good at wrapping her finger around Harry and to fork him because it’s every ladies dream to have prince Harry. Meghan Markle have learned a lot from her mother Doria Radlan taught her how to lure a ginger man is to wear less breast showing wtf she still wearing showing a breast on front magazine etc. all BS! Meghan Markle is up to something cannot be trusted since her half-sister Samantha Grant knew a lot and is going after her to suing her for making a book and her family is protect her and is on the side with Meghan Markle. just because she’s dating and living with Prince Harry just like she living with her ex-husband before wedding same in a path.Prince Harry told media to leave Meghan Markle alone leave her to private life, yes what a smart move since Meghan intend to breath better and not to worry about it. The 32-year-old royal pursued Suits star Meghan Markle, 35, after meeting … “They went out with a group of friends to Soho House in London in early July, … water project and has traveled to Afghanistan to support US armed forces.Harry loves her humanitarian work in Africa just to make it look good for Harry’s parents that the main reason also Queen of England Elizabeth II haven’t meet Meghan Markle personally and heard that Elizabeth isn’t taking good news well because her health issues and a lot going on like family feud over who going to be throne? son prince Charles or grandson prince William what’s con is Charles had history affair with his old girlfriend is now his wife name Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. William is still too young to be the king of England. and now Harry is living with biracial star Meghan Markle While rumors swirl that Prince Harry is preparing to move lady love Meghan Markle into his new Kensington Palace apartment. This is strange how Harry fell for it so fast in the process like unbelievable.It’s like second-hand shoes, one just does not buy them or indeed try them on.blimmey she got married, not many people do that? she had a drink, not many people do that? had fun on the beach, not many people do that? wonder what they did on their wedding night??? not many people do that.Oh dear, this is hardly in line with normal Royal protocol. Of course being ‘in line’ requires a considerable amount of discipline and Prince Harry needs to realise that he is funded by the taxpayer. England the tax payers do not expect to fund, second-hand goods and hand them downs.Sorry Harry, but you have to take the privilege with the bad. I’m sure there will be many many more stories coming through. this is far out odds?have you heard about youtube Prince Harry doesn’t want you to know Why Prince Harry does not want you to see this Video. PrinceHarry 666. ..youtube has shown Prince William is installing RFID Mark of the beast machines.Prince William is installing RFID Mark of the beast machines, under the disguise of Obama care. What a dirt bag, getting Obama to set up and do all his dirty.Obama care now under Prince Williams control the Mandela,,Pope,Queen Knights of Malta. Prince William is installing RFID Mark of the beast machines???

  4. If authorities of prisons, camps, jails, etc., everywhere would wise up to the benefits of water-only-fasting, the next time any person or group claims they are going to “HUNGER STRIKE,” the authorities should simply say…

    *”So you want to go on a water-only fast? Great idea! We will accommodate you with fresh water daily & a mat to rest on. Fasting is really excellent for the body. It detoxes all your internal organs which will help you to live longer, it will clear up any ailments, aches, pains, asthmas, high blood pressure, allergies, etc., it will make your spirit calm & loving, it will makes your eyes white & bright again, it will clear up your brain so you can think better, etc. etc. So, by all means, please proceed. Jesus fasted 40 days, so did Elijah. So we would love it if all of you would lie down, rest, & drink only water for the next 40 days. It’ll save us a bundle, so it’s a deal! Carry on!”*

    The “protesters” would be dumbfounded!
