Jun 29, 2017 | Updates

On June 16, 2017, the California Department of Justice announced that it will begin reviewing the conditions under which immigrants are civilly detained in California while they await immigration hearings. LACLJ is in strong support of Senate Bill 29, which would stop California cities from profiting from contracts with private detention facilities and allow the DOJ and local prosecutors to take legal action to enforce ICE detention standards.
