Jose Luis has been moved to the Monroe County Jail in Michigan! This is good news as he is now closer to home and his family can visit him.

With the support of the family, we will be holding a rally for Jose Luis at the immigration detention center in Monroe. With this rally we hope to keep public attention on Jose Luis' case, continue to let the courts know that his case is being closely watched by many, and make sure the jail knows that Jose Luis should be treated with care as there is a community supporting him and looking out for his well-being.
