With Force-Feedings Ordered, ACLU Calls for End to Disparate Policies for People Seeking Asylum and Mistreatment of Hunger-Striking Detainees in Florida ICE Facility

MIAMI, FL - The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Florida is calling on the Department of Homeland Security to end inconsistent application of detention policies for asylum-seekers that has led to at least 11 individuals in South Florida Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facilities to resort to a hunger strike. Earlier today, a judge issued an order to force-feed 3 of the hunger strikers.
