Human Rights: The State of Confinement and Detention During COVID-19

February 17, 2021

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Puente observed Arizona state and county responses that neglected or ignored the needs of our community members locked in cages. Politicians developed plans to "flatten the curve" without considering how to protect people who are incarcerated, a population that health experts agree is among those most at risk of the virus and in need of care.There was therefore a critical need to move Arizona Governor Ducey, ADOCRR Director David Shinn, ICE Field Director Jesse Williams, and Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone to honor their responsibilities, take humane action, and protect all people inside their jails, prisons and detention centers. As a result, Puente launched its #AZFreeThemAll Campaign to demand the release, liberation, and care of all people in Arizona's cages.
