AMOS YEE STILL STUCK IN US PRISON, ASKS FOR BOOKS TO BE SENT TO COMFORT HIM

Amos is still needlessly in prison because the government continues to challenge the court ruling that granted his political asylum. The government’s decision to continue to incarcerate him weighs heavily on his spirits as he continues to fight against the enduring stress of his imprisonment in the US and the trauma from his imprisonment in Singapore. Amos has found comfort reading books that his supporters have sent him over the weeks. Amos has requested Joshua Benjamin Jeyaretnam​'s book “Make it right for Singapore: Speeches in Parliament, 1997-1999” in solidarity with those who have been unjustly persecuted by their governments.

AMOS YEE PLACED ON SUICIDE WATCH, STUCK IN US JAIL INDEFINITELY

Amos is currently out of suicide watch but his prolonged stay in jail is only making his situation even worse. Amos is suffering under great psychological stress. We are disappointed that immigration authorities under the Trump administration would not uphold our Western values of taking in persecuted political dissidents; our country was founded on these principles. We can only suspect inference by the Singaporean government as there would be no other legitimate reason for Amos to be detained for so long after being granted asylum by the court.
