Protesters in San Diego Decry Denial of Medical Care to Migrants in ICE Custody

HeadlineDec 11, 2019

In San Diego, California, six people were arrested outside the U.S. Customs and Border Protection building to protest the denial of medical care, including flu vaccinations, to families detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement or Border Patrol. Tuesday’s protest on International Human Rights Day came after doctors were barred from providing flu vaccines to migrants detained inside the Chula Vista Border Patrol Station. Hundreds of protesters in Rhode Island also blocked the driveways to the Wyatt Detention Center, while in Kansas City, Missouri, seven people were arrested protesting outside of UMB Bank, which represents the bondholders of the Wyatt Detention Facility.
