ICE Detention in Fla. Violates 5th, 8th Amendments: Gayle v. Meade

Gayle v. Meade

"The Petitioners in this case are 34 immigrant detainees. Petitioners claim that they are housed at one of three immigration detention centers in Florida: the Krome Detention Center in Miami (“Krome”), the Broward Transitional Center in Pompano Beach (“BTC”), and the Glades County Detention Center in Moore Haven (“Glades”). ... There is record evidence demonstrating that ICE has failed in its duty to protect the safety and general well-being of the Petitioners. ... there is sufficient evidence in this record to determine that the present 
conditions at the three detention centers constitute a violation of the Petitioners Fifth and Eighth Amendment rights."
