Sherburne County Jail makes millions holding immigrants for ICE. The conditions are inhumane: The food is inedible, no in-person visits with family are allowed, and detainees can’t go outside. The jail is using solitary confinement (which they like to call “special housing”) for punishing the most minor of offenses, even for people with mental health issues – and this is not the first time the jail has faced these accusations.
Please help send the message that no one should be treated like this. Call Sheriff Joel Brott at 763-765-3500 and County Commissioner Tim Dolan at 763-331-1923 and ask them to end the use of solitary at Sherburne County Jail.
