HeadlineJun 30, 2021

In New Jersey, immigrant justice advocates are denouncing the transfer of a group of 30 immigrants detained in a Newark ICE jail to an unknown location early Tuesday. Among them were men who had recently started a hunger strike. The group Abolish ICE NY-NJ reports guards may have tried to end the strike by entering people’s cells and macing them. The group said some were dragged out of their cells in their underwear. The immigrants’ whereabouts is still unknown.
