Case Summary

On August 1, 2018, six non-citizens detained at the Federal Correctional Institution Medium II, also called Victorville, filed this putative class-action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.

On August 1, 2018, six non-citizens detained at the Federal Correctional Institution Medium II, also called Victorville, filed this putative class-action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. The plaintiffs, represented by the ACLU and the Civil Rights Education Enforcement Center, among others, sued the President, the Attorney General, and the directors of the Departments of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Federal Bureau of Prisons (FBP), the Los Angeles ICE Field Office, and the Warden of Victorville Prison under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, 42 U.S.C. § 2000bb. The case was assigned to Judge Jesus G. Bernal.

ICE moved a large group of detainees to Victorville on June 8, 2018, and many of the plaintiffs had been detained there from that date. The plaintiffs alleged they were denied adequate food and recreation time, accommodations to practice their religions, and access to healthcare. The plaintiffs sought injunctive relief, claiming violations of their Fifth Amendment right to due process, First Amendment right to free exercise, and RFRA protections from policies that substantially burdened their religious practice. They asked the court to order the defendants to move all ICE immigration detainees from Victorville as quickly as possible. In the meantime, the plaintiffs also asked that they be provided with adequate health care, nutrition, out-of-cell time, programming, reading materials, and accommodations for religious practice, including compliant diet, clothing and jewelry, religious texts, and opportunities for prayer and group worship.

In September 2018, the plaintiffs filed a motion for class certification, a preliminary injunction, and expedited discovery. The defendants requested extra time to respond, which the court granted. The parties then jointly requested additional time, saying they were actively working toward an agreement.

On October 26, 2018, the defendants filed a notice of settlement with the court, indicating that the parties had reached a resolution.

However, on November 28, the plaintiffs filed a motion to reopen the case. They stated that the parties had been unable to consummate a settlement. A court employee noted that the plaintiffs erroneously marked their filing as a status report but did not direct them to amend it. As of May 2020, there has been no further action in the case, and it is unclear whether the litigation remains active.
