Chavez v. ICE

This court case is active

The ACLU of Washington filed a lawsuit to uphold the free-speech rights of an immigrant being detained at the Northwest Detention Center (NWDC) in Tacoma. Guards at NWDC assaulted Jesus Chavez Flores, seriously injuring his eye, and forced him to endure solitary confinement in retaliation for his participation in a peaceful hunger strike protesting conditions at the detention center. The cruel treatment Mr. Chavez endured is a clear violation of his First Amendment rights, the lawsuit asserts, and part of a nationwide pattern of intimidation and retaliation by the Trump administration.
