We write this as organizations committed to ending the practice of caging immigrants, including the more than two hundred people who remain behind bars at the Northwest Detention Center. On April 14, 2021, WA Governor Jay Inslee signed HB 1090, which bans private, for-profit prison companies that contract with local, state, and federal agencies such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from operating in the state. HB 1090 represents a victory for the thousands of people who, with the support and advocacy of La Resistencia, organized against their brutal confinement in places like the Northwest Detention Center, one of the largest ICE-contracted detention facilities in the western United States. Even as we celebrate the victory of all those who fought to make HB 1090 into law, we demand that Governor Inslee fulfill the spirit of the law he just signed. Inslee must immediately end Washington State’s Department of Corrections (DOC) collaboration with ICE.

Today, the vast majority of the 200 people incarcerated in the NWDC have been transferred from Washington State and Oregon’s DOC facilities. But for the current DOC-ICE collaborations that the Governor has the power to end immediately, the facility would be nearly empty. We demand the Governor end the practice of information sharing between DOC and ICE. This practice facilitates transfers to facilities Washington has now banned from continuing to operate in our state. The DOC-ICE collaboration currently feeds Washington residents into the very cages the Governor has just declared jeopardize the lives of the people of our region.

Because HB 1090 only bans future contracts with for-profit private prison companies in our state, Washington State residents could continue to suffer in NWDC custody until the facility’s closure (the current contract ends in 2026). This does not have to be the case. The Governor should implement the true spirit of the law he just signed and declare that the state will not enable one more person to languish in for-profit facilities like the NWDC by ending the practice of DOC collaborating with ICE to reincarcerate people in their custody who have completed their sentence rather than respect their freedom.

Escribimos este comunicado como organizaciones comprometidas con poner fin a la práctica de enjaular inmigrantes, incluidas las más de doscientas personas que permanecen tras las rejas en el Northwest Detention Center. Ayer el gobernador de Washington, Jay Inslee, firmó el proyecto de ley HB 1090, que prohíbe operar en el estado a las empresas penitenciarias privadas con fines de lucro que tienen contratos con agencias locales, estatales y federales como el Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas (ICE). El proyecto HB 1090 es una victoria para las miles de personas que se organizaron, con el apoyo de La Resistencia, contra el brutal confinamiento en lugares como el Northwest Detention Center, uno de los centros de detención más grandes contratados por ICE en el oeste de Estados Unidos. Mientras celebramos la victoria de todos aquellos que lucharon para convertir HB 1090 en ley, exigimos que el gobernador Inslee cumpla con el espíritu de la ley que acaba de firmar. Inslee debe poner fin de inmediato a la colaboración del Departamento de Correcciones (DOC) del estado de Washington con ICE.

Hoy, la gran mayoría de las 200 personas encarceladas en el NWDC han sido trasladadas allí desde las instalaciones de los DOCs de los estados de Washington y Oregon. Pero el NWDC estaría casi vacío si no fuera por la colaboración entre DOC y ICE, que el Gobernador tiene el poder de terminar inmediatamente. Exigimos al gobernador que ponga fin a la práctica de compartir información entre el DOC y ICE. Esta práctica facilita la transferencia de personas a las instalaciones que ahora el estado de Washington ha prohibido. La colaboración entre DOC y ICE actualmente termina poniendo a residentes de Washington en las mismas jaulas que el Gobernador acaba de declarar como peligro para la vida de las personas de nuestra región.

Debido a que HB 1090 solo prohíbe los contratos futuros con compañías de prisiones privadas con fines de lucro en nuestro estado, los residentes del estado de Washington podrían seguir sufriendo bajo la custodia del NWDC hasta el cierre de la instalación (el contrato actual finaliza en 2026). Esto no tiene que ser así. El gobernador tiene en su poder la capacidad de implementar el verdadero espíritu de la ley que acaba de firmar y declarar que el estado no obligará a ninguna persona más a vivir en condiciones adversas en instalaciones con fines de lucro como el NWDC. El gobernador Inslee puede hacer esto poniendo fin a la práctica de colaboración entre DOC y ICE que reencarcela a personas que ya han cumplido su condena en vez de respetar su libertad.
