Immediate intervention needed

LeeB on Larisa's cousin in jail:
Larisa -

I just posted an appeal to Sen. Nelson at Congress.org. Mebbe we can stir up a bit more attention with it on this site, too. It contains this updated info as well as the complete text of the original story with the link to RS.
I'll be either making calls to Florida tomorrow or sending some faxes. Seems to be the best way around the restrictions of constituents-only communications.

Go here.
What LeeB posted at COngress.org:
Subject: Immediate intervention needed to save the life of a LEGAL RESIDENT ALIEN being detained by U.S.

To: Sen. Bill Nelson

October 1, 2006

Please give immediate attention to this outrageous affront to the humane treatment of a legal resident alien in the State of Florida. Since this report was published, Ms. Maryanovsky has been moved to Krome, a location 130 miles away from her attorney and her family, and is STILL being denied her high blood-pressure medications.

THIS IS NOT MY AMERICA. WE DO NOT ALLOW THIS KIND OF TREATMENT OF ANYONE. PLEASE STEP IN AND CORRECT THIS OUTRAGEOUS ACTION ON THE PART OF ICE.

Thank you
Thnx LeeB

update from LeeB:
Here is a link to the entire Florida delegation. Each name takes you to a page with their office addresses (both in D.C. as well as main district office), complete with phone and fax numbers.
Thnx LeeB

this is NOT my country, not the one in which i grew up, at least. i don't think anyone in power's gonna do shit unless WE step up in unison and stay visibly outside en masse.

i hope Larissa's cousin's family are setting up lawsuits especially about denying her cousin her medication.

totally outrageous. it breaks my heart.

Larisa, are you watching this space?

I sent you an urgent message via the Raw Story contact page and also an email via Luke.

Email me at baxtl at hotmail dot com and I'll fill you in. The Raw Story message includes my cell phone number, so if you can get that, please call.
