“The deaths of multiple Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainees were preventable, according to internal agency documents obtained by The Young Turks. One ICE official told TYT the problem is “systemic.”
“IHSC [ICE’s Health Services Corps] is severely dysfunctional and unfortunately preventable harm and death to detainees has occurred,” an ICE supervisor notified Matthew Albence, then Acting Deputy Director of ICE, in a memo dated December 3, 2018.
ICE did not respond to multiple requests for comment from TYT.
Albence touched off controversy last year when he likened ICE detention centers to “summer camp.”
Several ICE whistleblowers have come forward alleging misconduct by the agency in recent months. In May, Ellen Gallagher, a former senior policy advisor at ICE’s parent agency, DHS, told NBC News that she had seen ICE “brutalize” detainees with solitary confinement for minor infractions. Documents obtained by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and shared with several news outlets detailed ICE’s widespread use of solitary confinement.
Last June, when ICE whistleblower James Schwab was doing an interview with CBS News at his home in San Francisco, DHS agents interrupted the interview, demanding to speak with him. Schwab had alleged “false” and “misleading” statements made by ICE under the Trump administration.”
