West Texas Detention Faciliy

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« Having “connections” often infers: ONE: criminal TWO: reach to higher status. As I use the word, “connection” in this post I’m neither reaching up or into crime. My Cuenca amiga is connected. She is a business owner, landlord, and homeowner. We are about the same age with all of our adult lives in the US. Ironically if it weren’t for me she would not routinely speak English. My Cuenca amiga is a goto person for her barrio, and she was asked to make a credit-card payment to a phone card, and being one of her goto persons she came to me. I’ll call the man who came to her Juan, and Juan’s wife, Maria. Maria crossed Mexico’s northern border into the US, and Maria is now in West Texas Detention Facility. Dear kind readers: If you have no familiarity with the difficulty making phone calls from a prison or a detention center please consider: ONE: detained and imprisoned people are more likely to get their life back on track if they stay in touch with people who can help them like family and attorneys TWO: detained people are more likely to fail upon release if they stay in contact with the wrong people. Sincerely, Tom Doody. This aforementioned good-call-bad-call makes phone calls a problem for facility management, and among other problems calls are expensive. In a flash last night my Cuenca amiga collected some money, and I bought an internet phone number for the area code of the West Texas Detention Facility. At that moment and for a month Maria can call Jose by calling a local phone number. God this feels great. I spent minutes making a solution for a couple in a difficult situation, and I owe this to my position as one of my Cuenca amigo’s goto people . . awesome. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us
