Retention Memo for Onsite Investigation at Yuma Border Patrol Station in Yuma, Arizona

CRCL opened complaints alleging that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) violated the civil rights and civil liberties of detainees at the Yuma Border Patrol Station, to include temporary soft-sided facilities that were constructed in June 2019 to address the influx, and the San Luis Port of Entry (POE) in Yuma, Arizona. The allegations included: inferior hold room conditions, such as inadequate food, drink, temperature control and bedding; lack of personal hygiene items; insufficient health screening and medical care; inappropriate family separation; inadequate record-keeping; inadequate telephone access; verbal and physical abuse; excessive time in custody; failure to return personal property upon departure from the CBP facility; and failure to provide reasonable accommodations to disabled persons at the POE.
