NYT: ICE Regularly Using Solitary Confinement in Detention Centers

Rate this Entry

The Times ran a stunning investigative piece this weekend on the regular use of solitary confinement in immigration detention centers around the country. A couple of points -


1. These are civil cases, not criminal ones.


2. The confinement often lasts for months on end.


3. The UN says anything more than 15 days absent extreme circumstances is tantamount to torture.


ICE used the oldest excuse in the book when it declined to comment to the Times - they are just protecting the privacy of the detainees. ICE seems to love making sure that these folks get a lot of privacy including making sure they have no human contact for months at a time. Read this piece, folks.
