“Unmitigated Disaster”: Hunger Striker at Otay Mesa Detention Center Speaks Out as COVID-19 Spreads

By 30/06/2020 No Comments

We go inside Otay Mesa Detention Center in California to speak to Anthony Alexandre, a Haitian immigrant and longtime U.S. resident who has led two hunger strikes to protest dire conditions and a deadly COVID-19 outbreak at the jail. ICE claims the coronavirus has infected at least 166 immigrants imprisoned there, but sources inside say the number is even higher. Alexandre has being jailed at Otay Mesa since February.
