ABSTRACT

Management Alert - Immediate Removal of All Detainees from the Torrance County Detention Facility   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the Background: "ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] is required to comply with detention standards and establish an environment that protects the health, safety, and rights of detainees. As mandated by Congress, we conduct unannounced inspections of ICE detention facilities to ensure compliance with detention standards. [...] From February 1, 2022, to February 3, 2022, we conducted an unannounced, in-person inspection of Torrance to determine whether it complied with the 2011 PBNDS ['Performance Based National Detention Standards']. [...] During our inspection, we found such egregious conditions in the facility that we are issuing this management alert to notify ICE. We have determined that ICE must take immediate steps to address the critical facility staffing shortages and unsanitary living conditions that have led to health and safety risks for detainees at Torrance."
