Black immigrant rights groups demand answers regarding death of Cameroon man under ICE watch - Kos

Quote:
A coalition of black immigrant rights advocacy groups are condemning the recent death of Nebane Abienwi while in federal immigration detention, demanding to know the circumstances that led to the 37-year-old asylum-seeker from Cameroon suffering a brain hemorrhage and then dying while under U.S. watch. “The death is the first in ICE custody in the new fiscal year,” BuzzFeed News reported at the time.

Abienwi had been in the agency’s custody since Sept. 19, after arriving at the San Ysidro Port of Entry on Sept. 5. While ICE would not confirm it, The Los Angeles Times reported, he “was probably an asylum seeker, advocates said,” with Mexico seeing an increase in asylum-seekers from Cameroon in recent years. Abienwi had been jailed at the Otay Mesa Detention Center, operated by private prison profiteer CoreCivic, when he was rushed to a hospital. “The medical staff identified the cause of death as brain death secondary to basal ganglia hemorrhage,” ICE claimed in a statement.

The groups, which include the Cameroon American Council, the Partnership for the Advancement of New Americans, the Black Alliance for Just Immigration, the Black LGBTQIA+ Migrant Project, the Black Immigrant Collective, and the African Public Affairs Committee, noted that the facility where Abienwi had been jailed already has a history of abuse against detainees—including the use of solitary confinement, which is torture—as well as claims of serious medical neglect.

“Black immigrants, in particular, report horrific experiences of anti-blackness, abuse, and harassment while in detention,” the Black Alliance for Just Immigration said. “We believe his death would not have occurred had he not been detained,” said Genevieve Jones-Wright of the Partnership for the Advancement of New Americans. “What was the incident that gave way to him having a brain hemorrhage?”

ICE Moved 700 Women Out Of A Detention Center And Won’t Tell Lawyers Where They Are - HP

Quote:
The inability to track these immigrants could have fatal consequences if their health continues to deteriorate, according to Andrea Meza, the director of family detention services at RAICES.

“I’m really fearful that their conditions could worsen,” Meza said. “I don’t want them to be in another ICE press release about death in detention.”

The situation highlights a common problem for migrants in ICE custody: They can be transferred between facilities with little notice and yet their new locations are not promptly updated in the system. If their existing lawyers and family members can’t find them, they may have to go through their cases without legal representation, especially in remote areas where legal counsel is sparse. And those with serious health issues could die if advocates who don’t know where their clients were transferred are unable to fight for their right to medical treatment.

ICE did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

HuffPost reported that while at Karnes, some of the immigrants were allegedly being denied lifesaving care, such as cancer and HIV treatment, and that suicidal patients were not receiving psychiatric counseling. One woman with cancer in her uterus said she had not received medical treatment for more than two months. Another immigrant, who is HIV positive, said she was not getting her medication or being evaluated by a doctor, even as her symptoms worsened. A doctor told HuffPost that anyone with a serious physical illness requires constant medical visits to stop their disease from rapidly progressing.

The lack of medical care in immigrant detention facilities is well-established. Seven immigrants have died in ICE detention centers this year, and six minors have died in Border Patrol centers, in many cases because they didn’t receive proper medical help for their illnesses.

Ice is trash. But there are ways out.

About Us
This service is provided by Never Again Action: Atlanta, the local chapter of the national Never Again Action organization. As a Jewish-led organization, we believe we were taught to never let anything like the Holocaust happen again.

We refuse to wait and see what happens with our nation’s immigration system — we know from our own history what happens next. Many of our ancestors narrowly escaped from conditions like what we are seeing today in detention centers and immigrant communities around the country. We are putting our bodies on the line because when we say never again, we mean never again for anyone.


Never Again is the best.

They're so trash

ICE confirms another person has died on its watch, the second death this month

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials on Wednesday confirmed the Tuesday death of Roylan Hernandez-Diaz, a 43-year-old Cuban man, while in their custody at the Richwood Correctional Center in Louisiana. ”The preliminary cause of death appears to be self-inflicted strangulation; however, the case is currently under investigation.”

This is the second person to die while in ICE custody since the start of the month, when Nebane Abienwi, a 37-year-old man from Cameroon, suffered a brain hemorrhage and died after being detained at the Otay Mesa Detention Center in California.
