Our partners in New Jersey, IRATE & First Friends, put out a newsletter, Yearning to Breathe Free, 3-4 times a year. In the September 2009 issue, there's a particularly relevant article regarding detention in the tri-state area entitled Where are the Detainees. In it, they give a breakdown of the seven locations holding detainees, five of which are County Jails. Also in the newsletter are the organization's thoughts on the recent announcements from ICE and DHS regarding reform.
Follow the links for more information in addition to access to past newsletters.
