#freemarichuy Immigration and Trans folks

Tiq Milan MSNBC

With clashes at the Texas/Mexican border becoming increasing more violatile, the needs of trans folks falls through the cracks,  often times delibrately. Marichuy Gamino, a 23 year old trans woman who has lived in Arizone since she was a child has been detained for over a year because she is undocumente. While in uthe dentetion center she told the guards repeatedly that she was being harassed. They ignored her and then she was raped. This heartbreaking story is far too common. Many transgender women with intersected identities are wholey ignored and abused by the systems put in place to protect them.
