Improper use of toxic cleaner at Adelanto Detention Center raised
ADELANTO – (INT) – Two California lawmakers are alleging the improper use of a toxic cleaning agent at the federal Adelanto Detention Center to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
Democrats Mark Takano and Rep. Juan Vargas sent a letter to ICE Adelanto Detention Center Warden, James Janecka, following reports of immigrant detainees falling ill and suffering ailments in the wake of the widespread use of a chemical disinfectant.
Although ICE claims to foster the highest standard of cleanliness and sanitation, the Congressmen claim the reports they’re getting are contrary to ICE’s official position on the matter.
The allegations were raised by the Freedom for Immigrants and the Inland Coalition for Immigrant Justice.
