One trans woman was isolated AFTER a suicide attempt. 🤦🏻♀️
For 10 more months.
SEVEN PEOPLE have committed suicide in solitary confinement in ICE custody.
"She was disturbed."
She contacted her boss
They did virtually nothing.
Now she's come out to the public.
When you add in that many in ICE detention centers are ASYLUM SEEKERS and have committed NO CRIMES, but have themselves been persecuted or tortured and may have PTSD....well, it's disturbing.
Seeking asylum is legal. So is being disabled, gay, or having a green pepper in your sock.
None of these should get you 15 days in solitary confinement.
1) Call your Electeds and tell them to:
a. support the Dignity for Detained Immigrants Act, HR 2415/S 1243
b. call for a new, more thorough inspection from OIG of "segregation" in ICE detention, aka solitary confinement
There are a number of such services in my Giant Conglomerate Thread:
