Will We Be Locked Up Forever?

Created by a mother while detained (ultimately for 13 months with three children).

I had a court date Monday.

            Two days ago.

The judge will not deport me.

            But the judge will not release me.

We have been locked up a long time.

            Seven months.

I have three children.

            They are here with me.

My husband is undocumented.

            He fled gang violence too.

            Three years ago.

We are trying to join him here.

            To live together as a family.

I don’t have another court date.

            Maybe next month.

What happens if the judge doesn’t release us?

            Will we be locked up forever?
