American Immigration Council and Partners Call on U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement to Ensure Access to Legal Services for Haitian Immigrants at Torrance County Detention Facility
The American Immigration Council joined partners ACLU New Mexico, Haitian Bridge Alliance, Innovation Law Lab, and National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild in sending a letter calling on U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to ensure access to legal services at the Torrance County Detention Facility in Estancia, New Mexico. The letter was submitted in response to ICE denying attorneys both in-person and telephonic legal access to a group of Kreyol-speaking Haitians at the facility and also calls for a pause of their deportations until legal access is implemented.
