I just called the Director of BOP. He agreed situation is unacceptable and that contractor had left MDC. Given how badly MDC is handling, he agreed to get BOP Regional Director involved. We stressed need to get detainees with medical needs moved.
He also found it unacceptable I wasn't allowed to speak with inmates during last night's visit.

Continuing to monitor and push for answers & immediate action.
I want to thank my colleague @RepJerryNadler and all the NYers today who joined together to stand for justice and against this inhumane treatment. We will continue pushing for answers and more importantly, swift action.
I appreciate all the elected officials, BK Defenders and concerned NYers who joined together today for not allowing this outrageous behavior to stand. We will keep fighting until this is resolved.
We were able today to enter cells to feel air and water temperatures and speak with detainees. One guard reported needing to wear fleece over a down vest to stay warm in overnight hours.

Will continue to push for action.
