A Long Night
He was sentenced one year for a domestic violence case many years ago. He had to reduce that one-year sentence by one day so he wouldn't have to face deportation. But he lost. He doesn't want to appeal the judge's decision because he's tired of being locked up. He's been in custody for almost 3 months.
For two hours, he vented his frustrations and concerns about leaving his parents behind. I listened, advised him to focus on the future, and comforted him. Once he got tired, he went to sleep.
Tomorrow is another day.
