& # 39; Lloyd has deep links with immigrant and refugee communities in Buffalo, & # 39; they said in October 24 pronunciation.

They added: & # 39; There is no excuse for what happened and we have already started updating our internal procedures to ensure that future truck stops and events match the values ​​of our company. & # 39 ;

Lloyd claimed that all sales in the facility would go to the Justice for Migrant Families WNY, which provided insight into the approximately 700 people detained at the Buffalo Center.

& # 39; People detained in Batavia regularly report that they do not receive enough portions of food to be supplemented by purchasing food at the facility, & # 39; said Carra Statton, co-founder of Justice for Migrant Families WNY, in one pronunciation.

& # 39; Detained immigrants working in Batavia earn a dollar a day that they use for phone calls, extra food or basic necessities. In the past year, when the American system weakened under waves of regressive federal policy that overflowed the detention, the food portions and quality in Batavia also suffered.

& # 39; In addition, those with medical conditions related to nutrition are adversely affected by the food they receive to the point that they can become very ill during their detention. & # 39;

And while many were satisfied with Lloyd's decision, several right-wing critics blamed the company for its decision. According to Cimino, co-founder of the food truck, the establishment lost three planned visits.

& # 39; The men and women working at the Buffalo Federal Detention Facility are Detention Officers, Deportation Officers, Administrative Support Staff, Doctors, Nurses, Judges, Lawyers and Maintenance Staff, & # 39; ICE said in a statement

They received even more faint after ICE had released its own statement.

& # 39; The men and women working at the Buffalo Federal Detention Facility are Detention Officers, Deportation Officers, Administrative Support Staff, Doctors, Nurses, Judges, Lawyers and Maintenance Staff, & # 39; they said in a statement.

Cimino apologized for taking the & # 39; hastily made & # 39; decision to say sorry for serving ICE, and added that the company & # 39; had responded too quickly to criticism we received for that visit & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Each of them is responsible for the safety, security and care of the prisoners here. Almost 50% of the staff are veterans.

& # 39; Families are not being held here, nor has there been a child. In addition, an overwhelming percentage of detainees detained at this facility are criminal aliens, meaning they continued to commit more crimes after entering the United States illegally.

& # 39; We do our work and enforce the laws passed by Congress. Just like we have for many presidents. We will not apologize for this, not even against a food truck that now chooses to discriminate against us. & # 39;

Cimino apologized for taking the & # 39; hastily made & # 39; decision and added that the company & # 39; had responded too quickly to the criticism we received for that visit & # 39 ;.

He does not want to say whether the company would go to these types of companies in the future.

Justice for Migrant Families WNY later posted on Facebook that they were not & # 39; certainly & # 39; as if they still received the donation after Cimino withdrew his apologies

& # 39; We live in division, & # 39; said Cimino according to WIVB. & # 39; People become emotional and feel strongly about issues such as immigration policy, and social media enhance those emotions, but we make lunch and dinner, not policy. We support all our communities. & # 39;

& # 39; They parked a truck outside a federal detention center in Batavia and received some negativity from the left to serve employees of that facility, & # 39; said one reddit user.

& # 39; The law then became angry that Lloyd would apologize and defend the employees of the federal detention center. It looks like Lloyd is trying to stay as apolitical as possible, but even if he tries to sell some tacos, everyone gets excited.

& # 39; It is the same hyper-polarized policy that we unfortunately see today. & # 39;
