Immigration detention facilities have become a breeding ground for COVID-19 as the pandemic rages on. Immigration detention for vulnerable individuals has become a potential death sentence. This litigation on behalf of immigrants detained in an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center in Mississippi seeks their immediate release from civil immigration detention.

NIPNLG filed the lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi along with the Center for Constitutional Rights, the MacArthur Justice Center, and Jeremy Jong.
