"It's a warehouse of humans. And they treat us like chickens, they are treating us like cattle. The reality is that Latinos ... if we do nothing, if we do not unite, and we do make others listen to us, these abuses will continue ... and families will continue to separated. And we will continue to be detained without any other reason but to be detained before they deport us, and that's not fair. Virtually all the people who are here, we're at the point where we have lost hope. Most of us have been here for many months, some up to three, four years, then you reach a point where they no longer care anymore."
Oscar Quintero, immigrant detained at Etowah Detention Center, Alabama
