After Accepting NYC's immigrant detainees, Hudson County Tries to Make Jail Feel "Civil"
"Usually they’re pretty alert when they get here, then they get discouraged, then disillusioned. Then they get depressed.”
Greg Sullivan is speaking about the 355 immigration detainees being held in the Hudson County Correctional Center in Kearny, most of whom were living in New York City before they were detained. Inside the facility, they have minimal contact with family and friends, and little to do but wait for their cases to be heard by a judge.
