"Isolated in Essex" New NJ report investigates solitary confinement for immigrants

The AFSC, NJ Advocates for Immigrant Detainees and the NYU Immigrant Rights Clinic continue their collaboration and investigative projects. "Isolated in Essex" focuses on the use of solitary confinement in the immigrant detention facilities at the Essex County Correctional Facility.  The report findings are 1) The imposition of solitary confinement in Essex is excessive and disproportionate; 2) Essex employs solitary  confinement in an arbitrary fashion and 3) The disciplinary process for imposing solitary confiement in Essex lacks transparency and due process.
