Arielle Wisbaum, Health Justice staff attorney, New York Lawyers for the Public Interest, alongside several NYLPI clients, participated in a new report about LGBTQ+ and HIV-Positive people’s treatment while incarcerated in Federal Immigration jails.

The report was authored by Immigration Equality, Human Rights First, and the National Immigrant Justice Center and was published on June 18, 2024. NYLPI participated in interviews and helped draft the section on mental healthcare and solitary confinement. The report urges the phasing out of immigration detention for all, including LGBTQ+ and HIV-positive people.
