Amicus Brief in Support of Adequate Health Care for Immigration Detainees and Asylum Seekers

July 2008

Along with colleagues at the Bellevue/NYU Center for Survivors of Torture, PHR filed a brief amicus curaie in the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit that would allow a class action lawsuit to proceed to challenge health conditions in an ICE detention facility.

The brief argues that ICE policies and practices, such as denial of key health screening tests and exclusion of care for certain chronic conditions, should be subject to full review by a federal trial court.
