55 people found in the back of a trailer in #sanantonio We are onsite and ready to provide legal orientation and support with social workers and attorneys, but being denied access to the survivors by @DHSgov pic.twitter.com/2HldFOriSR— RAICES (@RAICESTEXAS) June 13, 2018
We were not allowed to speak to any of the people from the trailer. They were loaded onto buses by @DHSgov and driven away, presumably to detention. What should have happened? Our attorneys should have been able to advise people of their rights.— RAICES (@RAICESTEXAS) June 13, 2018
What should have happened? Our social workers should have been able to do a quick intake to determine if there were any special needs to be addressed.— RAICES (@RAICESTEXAS) June 13, 2018
