Slimy lunch meat, moldy showers, strip searches. Feds find horrid conditions at N.J. ICE facility.
An inspection of conditions immigrant detainees faced in four facilities around the country -- including the Essex County Correctional Facility in Newark -- found rotting food, decrepit bathrooms, a lack of outdoor space and other “egregious violations of detention standards,” according to a federal report.
The Department of Homeland Security’s Office of the Inspector General issued a 28-page report last week calling for better oversight of the facilities where Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents hold detainees awaiting immigration hearings, often for months at a time.
