It was brought to the attention of the Executive Chapter of CPSP that Muslim detainees' religious rights and dignity are being violated by the U.S. Dept. of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The Executive Chapter met on Aug. 28, and agreed by consensus to address this abuse. A copy of the letter that has been sent out is posted, below.

Several news outlets have reported on this unethical treatment of detainees, and you can read more about it by clicking on one of the links: CNN, Forbes, ABCNews, and HuffPost.

"We join in demanding that you hold all ICE officials accountable for this religious abuse and ensure that Muslims at all ICE facilities have access to unexpired halal meals."
