TAKE ACTION: Tell DOJ and BOP to stop abusing immigrant prisoners at Reeves

Take Action Today!

Dear Iris,

Earlier this year, NNIRR responded to a flood of calls from family members of immigrant prisoners at the Reeves County Detention Complex (RCDC) in Pecos, Texas where prisoners protested inhumane conditions, which led to the deaths of several prisoners after being punished with solitary confinement for requesting medical care for delicate conditions.

Now, one year after prisoners rose up to protest these deplorable conditions and treatment, not much has changed at RCDC.

"I worry for my son’s health and well-being since he was transferred to the Reeves facility. They have very little to eat and are kept in really bad conditions. He tells us there are 60-80 people crammed in a room. We have sent him several money orders so he can make calls to us, and he never received them. The guards treat the prisoners badly and with no respect. I have seen the changes in my son since he was transferred there, and I am afraid they [guards] would leave him to die if he became ill, as they have done with so many others."
