ICE detainees at Wyatt get ‘Know Your Rights’ presentation from immigration attorneys



This morning a group of immigration attorneys, including Deborah Gonzalez of the Roger Williams University Law School Immigration Law Clinic, were granted access to the Wyatt Detention Facility to deliver a “Know Your Rights” presentation to United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainees being held at the facility.

“As an immigration attorney and as the Chairman of the Central Falls Detention Facility Corporation, I know that it is absolutely critical that ICE detainees understand their legal and human rights, and how to access legal services available to them,” said Joseph Molina Flynn, Chairman of the Central Falls Detention Facility Corporation, which oversees the Wyatt Detention Facility. “Working with Warden Daniel Martin and ICE officials, I am pleased we were able to provide detainees access to this important ‘Know Your Rights’ presentation.”
