Default Multiple Bibles never Delivered...Chippewa

So, Apparently in the Chippewa Facility, They are not delivering bibles. Stating that one was never received. Even though the tracking shows it right to their mailroom. This has happened to several different people one different days all through proper Vendors. They are furthermore giving out tickets if you have your bible with you in the quiet room (yet, catalogs, newspapers etc are ok)
My question is:
Is there anyone here with knowledge of who I might contact, either in the facility or at a state level?
I used to be the biggest supporter for prisoners and legal issues....I guess I am getting old! but this just seems to be directly against Freedom of Religion...

Are they being sent through an authorized source?

As to where they can possess it, units can dictate what is allowed in what areas. It will essentially be the same fundamental issue as the restriction of an ability to actually go to a church post release...the courts have repeatedly held that buildings and books are not absolutely essential to the individual being able to practice their faith. And, as long as an offender can read their book in their cell, their ability to practice their faith has not been abridged...

Yes all through BnN and Amazon. My bigger focus is who to contact because others are getting packages that are not bibles. Thank you.

Maybe you can call the mail room direct and ask them. See what kind of response you get and go from there.
