Prison Reform Rally 1/20/18 Jerry Mendoza-Villata statement on Incarceration & Immigrants

"Hola Hermanos y Hermanas de la comunidad Hispana de parte de los prisioneros de Augusta Correctional Center en el Estado de Virginia!

 

Sabemos que hemos cometido errores en el pasado para llegar a estos extremos.

Hemos pasado mucho tiempo arrepentidos de nuestras malas decisiones y estamos pagando por esos errores.

 

Sin embargo, seguimos siendo humanos y merecemos ser tratados como seres humanos con oportunidades, igualdad y derechos. Algo que por tiempo no ha estado pasando por falta de educación y entrenamiento de los prisioneros y la comunidad por igual. 

 

Pedimos humildemente que vayan los que puedan y a los que se les haga posible a la marcha el 20 de Enero en Richmond VA  para apoyar no solo a los prisioneros hispanos pero a todos sufriendo de las injusticias en el sistema de prisión en Virginia. 

 

Ejemplos de servicios insuficientes que no nos proveen son: clases en Ingles o Español de primaria y secundaria. Llamadas internacionales ( solo tres al año ) para nombrar algunas cosas.

 

Les agradecemos con mucha estima y cariño mientras esperamos poder ser liberados para ser ciudadanos productivos a nuestras familias, comunidades, y países.

Gracias y que Dios los bendiga

ENGLISH TRANSLATION (translated by Aileen Rivera)

 

Greetings Brothers and Sisters of the Hispanic Community from the prisoners of the Augusta Correctional Center in the state of Virginia! 

We know that we have made mistakes in the past  that brought us to these extremes. 

 

We have spent a lot of time in deep regret and remorse for our bad decisions and paying for our mistakes.  Nevertheless, we are still humans  and deserve to be treated as human beings with opportunities, equality and rights. These are things that have not been happening for a long time due to lack of education and training for both prisoners and the communities equally. 

 

We humbly ask everyone that is able to attend the rally on Saturday January 20th in Richmond VA to come support not just the Hispanic prisoners but anyone who has suffered from the injustices of the Virginia Prison system .

Some examples of insufficient services that are not provided: Elementary and Middle school grade classes in English or Spanish, international calls ( we only get 3/yr) to name a few things.

 

We appreciate and are very grateful for your support while we await to be free to become productive citizens for our families, communities and our country. 

Thank you and God Bless you all.

 

Jerry Mendoza-Villata
