    Hi, County Executive Tom DeGise


    My name is Aidan Thorvalson and I am messaging to demand that your terminate your contracts with ICE. The prisoners in their detentions facilities went on a hungerstrike protesting that egregious conditions that they are living in. They do not deserve to be taken away form their families. Especially with Covid-19, it makes the ICE facilites even more dangerous with prisoners at risk of contracting it. Please meet with local advocates to free the prisoners and end the detention of these people.


    Thank you,


    -Aidan Thorvalson

    As a father my Hudson county family is deeply disappointed in the Board of Chosen Freeholders renewing that 10 year ICE contract, November 23rd. To understand that a mere revenue stream was your motive for renewing this contract puts you in the company of the Trumpian pack of nationalistic hatemongers.


    Tom, please change course and keep your promise of two years ago to cancel Hudson County’s Contract with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Locking up immigrants is as un-American as it gets. You are enabling a callously immoral system of profit by prison.


    Shame on our ‘leadership’ in Hudson County, ICE OUT of HUDSON COUNTY.

    Mr. DeGise- Just heard about Board of Freeholders extending ICE contract. This is horrendous. We are hoping you can do something to stop this relationship with this organization that has horribly mistreated immigrants. Time to move to a post-Trump world. Please help.

    It is unconscionable that Hudson County continues to contract with ICE. These contracts should never have been renewed and you need to take action to cancel them now.

    YOU MUST REJECT ALL ICE CONTRACTS FOR NJ.


    “No governmental entity in New Jersey should be accepting money from ICE to detain individuals, particularly when the agency continues to pursue inhumane, xenophobic policies designed to terrorize and rip apart immigrant families; it has to stop,” —Senator Bob Menendez


    “No private or government entity should be contracting with ICE. These arrangements too often incentivize locking up people who pose no risk to the public, and perpetuate dangerous and dehumanizing immigration enforcement tactics.” Senator Cory Booker

    Tom maybe you should listen to the public. Stop holding your staunch extremist belief’s and listen to the people of Hudson County.


    I hope the North Bergen public works doesn’t try to wack me because of this

    Your editorial today on immigration would have been a lot more effective without the intermittent virtue-signaling tirades against Trump. Have the guts to take a stand without using a third party you hate as a justification for them. Never-the-less, it is refreshing to see there’s at least one Democrat who doesn’t want violent criminals roaming our streets.

    Biden only beat President Trump because he cheated. You should be embarrassed by your entire column but you’re another worthless POS. Hopefully you participated in the fraud and will be put in jail where you belong.

    County Executive DeGise you need to reject any contracts with ICE approved by the Board of Chosen Freeholders. ICE is an agency off the rails and any cent of blood money is not welcome here in Hudson County. If you truly believe Biden, the Vice President during the Obama administration, the same administration that earned the nickname “deported in chief”, will fix anything relating to ICE’s treatment of detainees and those it is separating, you’re a sucker.


    ICE has been found to be performing forced hysterecyomies on women in it’s custody. Do you want to support an agency that has its mission rooted in white supremacy to use the Hudson facility as cover for its more heinous acts? Cut all ties with ICE!

    Stop the negotiations with ICE. YOU committed to ending the contract two years ago. HISTORY IS WATCHING.

    I’m contacting you to demand the release of people detained in our community in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and an end to Hudson County’s contract with ICE. You may have heard the news about the whistleblower complaint filed against the Irwin Detention Center. It’s the ICE facility in Georgia that has become notorious overnight for forcibly sterilizing women who are detained there. In case you didn’t know, that is an act of genocide according to the United Nation’s Office on Genocide Prevention. However, the denial of health care to incarcerated people, particularly during a pandemic, is really what the whistleblower complaint was about. Hudson County has its own history of denying healthcare to people in ICE detention. You may recall Gaspar Avendaño-Hernandez whose medical condition, resulting from repeated tasering by ICE in February of 2020, required him to remain hydrated. However, when he was transferred to the Hudson County Jail he was stripped naked, placed in solitary and provided with water only every eight hours. The abuse and cruelty that is going on inside the U.S. immigration system is the product of an intentionally brutal and racist system that goes far beyond one facility. This system, a product of White Supremacist ideology, tortures the primarily Black and Brown people it targets. The question now is – will you have the courage to exercise your power to end this collaboration with ICE and terminate the contract? Will you do it in a way that does not simply trade profiting from one set of people for another? I am referring to the potential contract with Mercer County. I look forward to your response.

    A beautiful sunny Saturday in NJ and you have locked down your residents with any regard for their physical and emotional well being. Exercise some common sense. Open golf courses and other recreational venues where social distancing and other guidelines can be easily observed.
