Detained Migrants Sue ICE Over Sham Inspection

November 08, 2023 (1 min read)

ACLU New Mexico, Nov. 8, 2023

"A group of immigrants detained in inhumane conditions at New Mexico’s Torrance County Detention Facility (TCDF) is suing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for certifying a sham inspection in 2022 that allowed ICE to evade federal law and continue detaining immigrants at the facility, despite known ongoing violations of federal detention standards.  “The conditions and medical services in TCDF are deplorable - this place is not prepared to care for people or meet even their basic needs,” said Luis Doe, a plaintiff proceeding under pseudonym in the lawsuit, who has been detained at TCDF for over a month and a half."
