ICE Detainees in Newark Allege Poor Medical Care and Mistreatment

by Matt Katz

Detainees at the largest Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center in the New York and New Jersey area and their advocates say they are receiving substandard medical care, with Pepto-Bismol prescribed for prolonged stomach ailments and Bengay for a broken rib, in addition to delays in treatment, lack of access to specialized care, and disparaging comments by doctors and nurses.
The complaints came from more than a dozen of the approximately 600 immigrants who are held at the Essex County Correctional Facility in Newark while they await adjudication of their deportation cases. Some said they were extremely ill with bacterial infections over the last three months—vomiting, fainting and fearing they would die in their cells—but they weren’t getting proper treatment.
