In October 2022, CRCL conducted a review of all allegations received by CRCL from May 1, 2021, until July 6, 2022 that involved retaliation or threats of retaliation by ICE and facility personnel against individuals in ICE custody. During this 14-month time period, CRCL received a total of 192 allegations of retaliation, 138 of which led to investigations by CRCL. Some of the 192 allegations contained multiple instances and types of retaliation, and other allegations contained only a single instance of alleged retaliation. Many of these were covered in other investigations, however, CRCL retained the above-referenced allegations to use as representative samples for this investigation.1 In addition, CRCL received dozens of additional allegations regarding retaliation since July 6, 2022.
