Fix It

Updating a post we did last week. The ACLU issued a press release stating it sent a letter to Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, demanding she address the conditions at the South Louisiana Correctional Facility in Basile.

"Secretary Napolitano should take immediate action to fix the conditions which have forced detainees at the facility to risk their own lives by staging hunger strikes."
