Present and former incarcerated individuals have filed a lawsuit alleging that California’s Division of Corrections and Rehabilitation is violating the rights of U.S. residents and authorized residents by making referrals to immigration officers “solely” based mostly on the belief of prisoners’ homeland, race, ethnicity, or language skill, Kevin Rector reports for the Los Angeles Times.

The ACLU of Northern California stated that this apply deprives prisoners of entry to rehabilitative packages and housing models, violating their constitutional rights. The lawsuit calls on the courtroom to place an finish to the apply of referring prisoners to ICE and to enjoin the state from making selections based mostly on ICE holds.
