I read this on CNN this morning and was outraged. I've written the Jail spokeswoman but it would probably be great if voters in the county could contact them as well to register your outrage. The contact information is:<br>

CHARLOTTE -- A Brazilian woman who was jailed for an immigration violation isn't being allowed to give her 2-month-old son breast milk.<br><br>
Those taking care of the infant said he's crying incessantly and keeps spitting up baby formula.<br><br>
Ezequiel Oliveira said he spent hours at the Mecklenburg County jail on Monday trying to get a breast pump to 29-year-old Danielle Ferriera.<br><br>
The Brazilian woman has been in jail since Friday.<br><br>
Jail spokeswoman Julia Rush said inmates generally are not allowed to provide breast milk without a court order.<br><br>
Rush said officials are aware of the situation but can't discuss conversations between inmates and medical staff.<br><br>
Ferriera was initially arrested on a shoplifting charge, though Oliveira said Ferriera didn't know that her brother hid a CD or DVD in her baby stroller.</td>

Oh my, that is so sad!!<br><br>
I'm not sure how to do it, but maybe this could be double-posted on the lactivist forum. Any one know how to do that??
