Abstract CREEC filed a series of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests in August and September 2017 seeking information on a wide range of conditions of confinement issues, including the deaths of detained people, medical care, mental health care, solitary confinement, and sexual assault at the Adelanto ICE Processing Center, a private facility operated by the GEO Group in Adelanto, California, and the Etowah County Detention Center, a county jail in Gadsden, Alabama.

CREEC filed a lawsuit on February 7, 2018 in the District of Colorado demanding ICE produce the documents asked for in the FOIA requests.The lawsuit alleges that, despite a requirement by law that a response must be provided within 30 days, ICE has failed to respond to any of CREEC’s requests. The lawsuit seeks an order from the court requiring ICE to release the requested documents to CREEC.
