In New Jersey, undocumented immigrants often end up detained in county jails, separate from ICE detention facilities, where increased total populations have resulted in poor medical and mental health care for those inside. In this investigation, advocates and experts who've visited New Jersey detention facilities say that one mental health practice, suicide watch, has proven to be problematic and concerning, especially for civil detainees like undocumented immigrants.
