(Day 52) Hwaseong Immigration Detention Center-day 39
After about 20 minutes of this back and forth, the caseworker said "Finished. You go Friday. Stop calling guard." And walked away-- almost the same reaction as myself, except I only lasted about 5 minutes before I walked away. When you're in a cage, you're not really in a position to make demands about your release...
In one of the cells, there is a transgendered person. Technically a man, I suppose, but not really. Poor guy/girl is in the cell by him/herself. On one hand, she/he can watch whatever program he/she wants on TV, doesn't have to wait to shower, etc., but it must be very lonely to be in a cell all by yourself with no one to talk to, and whenever he/she walks by the other cells, the other men to make derogatory comments as she/he passes. It makes me sad to see, both for her/him and the other men.
