Officials Say Power Restored to Federal Jail in NYC

"I need to find out what's going on with my clients", lawyer Ezra Spilke said Friday. Jamaal Bailey, who toured the facility Sunday and said there was no heat on the fourth floor.

The trouble at the jail began after a January 27 electrical fire. The woman, crying and upset, tried to get into the facility, where visits have been stopped. No devices were found.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the disparity between its account and the attorneys' accounts.

"Inmates were wrapped head to toe in towels and blankets", Deirdre von Dornum, who oversees the Federal Defenders' Brooklyn team, said in a telephone interview on Saturday, recounting her tour of the jail the day before. It also refers to the conditions inside the jail as a "humanitarian crisis" and cites "guards wearing scarves and layers of clothing" while inmates "coped with "very cold' conditions in short-sleeve shirts and light trousers", according to the AP". Inmates also reported smelling noxious fumes and seeing corrections officers wearing masks even though none were supplied to inmates, the lawsuit said.

It called for the appointment of a special master to inspect the lockup and unspecified damages. With the heat and hot water operational, and the restoration of electrical power, the facility can now begin to return to regular operations. The agency insisted that inmates had hot water for showers and sinks, and were getting medications as needed.

"It's a violation of their human rights to be kept in the cold and not to be able to talk to anyone", said New York's Democratic Rep. Nydia Velazquez. On Sunday, the low will be around 30 degrees and the high is expected to be in the lower 40s. In a separate but coincidental issue, The New York Times reported that the poorly-designed heating and cooling system within the jail experienced frozen coils as temperatures dropped during the Polar Vortex's arrival in the Northeast last week.

Earlier Sunday, some demonstrators attempted to enter the facility, and guards drove them back with pushes and shoves.

"The people inside have a right to dignity and safety and we won't stand by while the Federal Bureau of Prisons fails them", he tweeted.

The lawsuit also accused the federal government of making misleading statements to the public and courts about conditions inmates faced.

Bob McGee, a spokesman for power company Con Edison, said they are ready to reconnect the electricity once repairs are completed.

"Prisoners in NY are human beings".

"This is a standard Trump Administration response talking out of both sides of their mouths and not worrying about the truth and not worrying about people's lives", NYCLU Executive Director Donna Lieberman said. They said all recreational activities as well as visits from lawyers and family members have been canceled. "They either failed to grasp or they failed to care about the severity of this humanitarian crisis".

"How is that? We live in a third-world country?" the mother of one inmate, Yvonne Murchison, asked.

"A lot of them have been receiving their food late". A hearing for the lawsuit was quickly held at 11 a.m., and a judge ordered the jail to take one sick inmate to the hospital, Reuters says.
