ACLU and Michigan Immigrant Rights Center Say Calhoun County Jail Should Allow In-Person Visits for Immigration Detainees

In a letter sent today to the Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, the ACLU of Michigan and the Michigan Immigrant Rights Center (MIRC) called on the agency to require the Calhoun County Jail to allow in-person visits for immigration detainees.

At issue are the civil rights of immigration detainees being held in anticipation of deportation, and who may never see their families again. The detainees are currently being held at Calhoun County Jail in Battle Creek, under a contract with DHS.
