NYLPI, along with five immigrant rights organizations, has supplemented our joint February 2022 complaint against the Department for Homeland Security (DHS) Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties (CRCL), further documenting persistent human rights abuses at Orange County Correctional Facility (OCCF) in Goshen, New York. We call on the DHS to remove officers named in the complaint, immediately release all detained immigrants and terminate its contract with OCCF. Despite being on notice over two months ago, DHS and OCCF have failed to take any accountability for the deplorable abuses experienced by people detained at the facility.

Read the Press Release for our supplemented complaint on our website.
