CIVIC Immigrant Support Group Kicked Out of West County


In a shocking move, Contra Costa sheriff David Livingston kicked immigrant support group CIVIC (Community Initiatives for Visiting Immigrants in Confinement) in what the group says is a retalitaory action after they drew attention to conditions in the jail, which houses immigrant detainees on a contract with ICE.

90 organizations, including Oakland Privacy, signed a letter objecting to the expulsion of CIVIC from the West County Immigration Detention Center.
