Our legal support network . . . [has] confirmed that there are at least 4 people detained by ICE at Albany County Jail, all of whom were initially detained by ICE on February 6 and 7. This afternoon our legal team was granted access to those detained and were able to confirm that only one individual from Columbia County was among them.
In addition to those detained, we have confirmed that ICE has interrogated at least one other individual in Hudson, taken their passport, and attempted to coerce them into signing a voluntary departure form, which they refused to do without legal representation.
We have received numerous other reports of ICE activities around the county and are working to verify those activities.
