I am asking ALL Canadians who care about human rights and social justice to PLEASE CONTACT OUR FOREIGN AFFAIRS MINISTER, PETER MacKAY about the ordeal of the nine-year-old Canadian boy who is being held at the T. Don Hutto Detention Center in Taylor Texas!
For links to my earlier articles and some background about this family’s terrible situation please read this: Nine-Year-Old Canadian boy Pleads for Freedom from Texas Detention!
Listen to Amy Goodman’s telephone interview with the little boy and his father and read the transcript of their conversation on Democracy Now!:
* “I Want To Be Free”: 9-Year-Old Canadian Citizen Pleads From Texas Immigration Jail *
*** Many thanks to liberal catnip for providing the link to Peter MacKay’s contact info on her post here.
