> “Bear in mind that the wonderful things you learn in your school are the work of many generations. All this is put in your hands as your inheritance in order that you may receive it, honor it, add to it, and one day, faithfully hand it to your children.” — Albert Einstein

Jose Vasquez was born in El Salvador and came to the United States in 1985 with his parents when he was five years old, fleeing civil war. He has been detained at the Theo Lacy county jail in Orange, California, for over a year — fighting to remain in the United States where the rest of his family resides legally.

To those supporting people in immigration detention, Jose says: “God bless you for spending your time with us. May God’s light shine on your days, and your nights!”
