NYLPI’s Director of the Health Justice Program, Laura Redman, recently published this op-ed in the New York Daily News warning of a developing human rights crisis, as the new administration’s deportation policies will increase the number of persons being sent to detention centers. “Under President Trump’s newly released policies expanding who is considered deportable, many more of our neighbors will be held in detention until their cases are resolved.  They will be locked into an unsafe and intolerable situation.”  Our report released February 22, 2017 documents egregious, recurring medical neglect in three county jail immigration detention facilities in our area.
