Women and children detained in immigrant holding cells along the U.S. - Mexico border are regularly forced to sleep on the floor in cells so cold, agents refer to them as “freezers," according to a new @HRW report.
Detainees described being forced to remove layers of clothing for “security” reasons, and sleep with just a thin, Mylar blanket, like this, to keep them warm at night.
