Carol Rose, executive director of the ACLU of Massachusetts, tonight released the following statement in response to reports of an incident at the Bristol County House of Correction:

“These reports are deeply disturbing. We are concerned for our clients, and everyone detained in the Bristol County House of Correction and ICE detention. Immigration detention has expanded at record levels under the Trump administration; now more than ever, we will not allow the increasingly horrific conditions of ICE detention to be normalized.”
