Adelanto Detainees Protested A Lockdown — Out Came The Pepper Spray
Over the weekend, I spoke with multiple sources about peaceful protests gone awry when officers at ICE's Adelanto immigrant detention facility in San Bernardino County deployed pepper spray and pepper balls.
In a phone call, one detainee told me:
“That’s when I went into my room and started throwing up, and my eyes were burning. That night was crazy. I couldn’t see. My whole body was burning. I had to get up a few times and throw water on my body. We coughed the whole night.”
