On March 24, 2020, the ACLU of Pennsylvania, the ACLU Immigrants Rights Project and National Prison Project, and the law firm Dechert LLP filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against Immigration and Customs Enforcement arguing that ICE has violated the constitutional rights of 13 people in immigration detention who are at heightened risk of contracting COVID-19 (coronavirus) due to age and/or serious health conditions.
