Report

This ACLU research report, No Fighting Chance: ICE's Denial of Access to Counsel in U.S. Immigration Detention Centers, provides the first comprehensive study of the barriers to access to counsel in U.S. immigration detention centers nationwide. Based on attorney surveys and calls to all immigration detention facilities nationwide, this report documents how ICE has systematically restricted the most basic modes of communication that detained people need to connect with legal counsel and the outside world. The report documents the many barriers that detained people face to communicate with counsel via telephone, video calls, mail, and in-person visits. It concludes with key recommendations for Congress and DHS to address these issues, and the crisis of detention more broadly.

The ACLU's 2021 annual report shares how the organization fought back against this year's barrage of state legislation aimed at suppressing the vote, banning abortion, restricting transgender rights, and more.

The report celebrates major victories, including the ACLU's Supreme Court win protecting the free speech rights of 50 million public school students, and reflects on key moments throughout the organization's history, such as Tinker v. Des Moines—the landmark student speech case that set the precedent for this year's win. There are also inspiring stories of families within the ACLU community who are empowering the next generation of activists.
