Over the past four years, CRCL has opened more than 60 complaints related to the segregation of individuals in ICE custody with an alleged mental health disability (MHD) or Serious Mental Illness (SMI). These allegations have arisen at different, geographically diverse, ICE detention facilities. These facilities operate under differing government agreements, a range of ICE detention standards, and further vary according to the specific provider(s) of mental health services.
To address the various issues implicated in these allegations, CRCL identified a representative sample of seven complaints to capture the types of allegations CRCL received from Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 – FY2023.
