Just went to St. Mary’s Greyhound Station in San Antonio. This is where ICE drops off asylum seekers when they’re released from detention. @RAICESTEXAS volunteers help 60 families a day to make sure they have the ability to get to their destination.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) December 12, 2018
In the past week our Bus Station Project in San Antonio provided legal orientations to 200+ families released from detention centers at the bus station.— 𝐑𝐀𝐈𝐂𝐄𝐒 (@RAICESTEXAS) December 13, 2018

When we arrived at Karnes Detention Center there was something serious enough going on that there was a sniper out front. When I asked about what was going on, I was told it was a drill. #FamilySeparation pic.twitter.com/49UTbNwJN8— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) December 11, 2018
Separating families and traumatizing children is a choice we don’t need to keep making. We know how to fairly examine each case in a safe space.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) December 13, 2018
Why aren’t we working toward that?
All people have rights. We need to respect those basic rights and uphold our values. #Tornillo pic.twitter.com/F52Urr3uKP
