Continuing our ongoing work to address inadequate medical care in immigration detention facilities, NYLPI announced today that it has submitted an open letter complaint detailing Hudson County Correctional Facility and ICE’s failure to provide adequate medical care and adequate discharge planning for NYLPI’s client, John Doe, who was confined to immigration detention at the facility from November 2014 through April 2015. Mr. Doe was diagnosed with cancer, approximately one full year after his initial complaint. NYLPI sent Mr. Doe’s letter complaint to federal and county officials, along with the private health care company working at the facility, because they share responsibility for providing medical care to people held in immigration detention at Hudson County Correctional Facility.
