Today I learned that every day, the U.S. government incarcerates 34,000 immigrants in detention facilities all across the country. I am writing to tell you that I am sorry, and to reassure you that you are not alone or forgotten. Even though we have never met, I am thinking of you and sending warm wishes your way.
If you are interested, I would like to be your pen pal. Every month we can write letters to each other.
Please understand that I am not a lawyer or social worker, but am writing simply as a concerned friend. If you would like to be my pen pal, please write me back at:
PO Box 12345

Your courage and strength is inspirational!
All the best,
