Petra Albrecht has spent over 15 months at the Adelanto Detention Center in California and remains detained there. During this time her health has greatly deteriorated to the point of needing to use a wheelchair. In the video, she highlights that because she speaks German, she has been verbally abused and ignored by the detention center staff. Community Initiatives for Visiting Immigrants in Confinement (CIVIC) and her family are actively fighting for her release.
Special thanks to CIVIC for coordinating the interview.
