#Racist #Richmond jailers continue to brutalize immigrant women

Several elected leaders have said they are appalled at the allegations. Rep. Mark DeSaulnier, D-Concord, has scheduled a Nov. 27 tour of the jail. And state Sen. Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, sent a letter to state Attorney General Xavier Becerra urging his office to immediately look into the conditions at West County.

So far, there’s no indication Becerra is going to take any action — and that’s a mistake on his part. Skinner reminded him in the letter that the Legislature provided his office with an extra $1 million this year to look at ICE detention centers.

“The allegations in this story are concerning,” the attorney general’s press office said in a statement. “As part of the California Department of Justice’s review of immigration detention facilities, we intend to look into issues like this and gain a better understanding of the conditions in these facilities.”
