posted by Howard B. Owens in batavia, news, Buffalo Federal Detention Facility.

A pair of kitchen personnel and a corrections officer at the Buffalo Federal Detention Facility in Batavia have been placed on leave after they were accused of feeding chicken picked from the garbage to Muslim detainees for their Ramadan meals.

The three workers are facing possible termination and the case has been referred to the Inspector General of Homeland Security.

In a statement, a spokesman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement said, “The agency takes all allegations of employee misconduct very seriously and will respond appropriately based on the investigative findings.”

The investigation is ongoing and no conclusive findings have been released. The names of the employees have not been released.

oh no, now we need to pay each detainee 1 million dollars, give them their citizenship, a house facing north and a new Toyota pick-up truck. we can not be treating muslims in such a fashion as they love americans and the freedoms we enjoy.
