Death by Detention video addresses unjust immigration system

Major press outlets like the New York Times and the Washington Post have reported on a dangerous “system of neglect” in immigration detention centers across the United States. Told from the point of view of her sister June Everett, this tragic video unravels the story of Sandra Kenley, a 52-year-old grandmother, who, after living in the U.S. legally for 33 years, was subjected to inhumane conditions that caused her death in detention.
