Our immigration detention system locks up hundreds of thousands of immigrants unnecessarily every year, separating families and exposing people in detention to brutal and inhumane conditions of confinement. 

In America, and in New Jersey, liberty should be the norm for everyone. The ACLU-NJ has been instrumental in limiting how local law enforcement interacts with federal immigration officials, ensuring access to due process for detained people, curbing immigration detention in New Jersey, and holding detention centers accountable.
