Heinrich Supports Federal Investigation Into Conditions At ICE Detention Facilities

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Oct. 30, 2019) – U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) issued the following statement supporting Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s call for a federal investigation into conditions at U.S. Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facilities in New Mexico:

“The deeply troubling reports of mistreatment and poor conditions at ICE detention facilities warrant a federal investigation. We need to get to the bottom of what’s taking place at these facilities and ensure anyone held in ICE’s custody is treated humanely and in accordance to the law.”
